  • How to avoid creating 2 appointments at the same time?

    I have created an AD account for a meeting room so that all user in the company for the convenience to book the meeting room in the MS Outlook Calendar.

    But it created 2 appointments for the same time slot when 2 users create appointment(booking) for the same period of time.

    Is there any way that I can restrict the MS Outlook Calendar only to allow to create only 1 appointment at a specific period of time?

    What version of Exchange are you using?
    There should be options either to manage the resource mailbox (someone approves requests) or to prevent conflicts

    (its not really an Outlook issue, so we will move the thread once we know which Exchange version to use)

        specifically the settings managed in OWA which includes "allow conflicts"

          If you enable the account for the room / resource and log on via OWA, click options/resource settings, here is where you should review. It's probably the 'Allow Conflicts' setting.
          Hope this helps.
