We intend to use a SharePoint online calendar to reserve fleet cars. Currently, selection of a vehicle is done using a choice (dropdown) field. We need a way to ensure that a single vehicle is not double booked. Please help! Thank you in advance -

    Hi @C Mo,

    Currently there is no such method to reach your requirement in SharePoint. A common workaround would be using Power Automate to check after the new event creation, delete the duplicate entry if any. Here is an example: Prevent double booking SharePoint calendar for the day.

    In addition, there is a PowerApps Office Template named Book a Room that might do some help on this scenario. Reference: Office Template: Book a Room now available.
