I am trying to create a calendar trough SharePoint to schedule and track appointments for my staff. I have tried 2 ways now. One - by creating a calendar. Two - by creating a custom list and then a "Calendar View" of the list. So far, the custom list has worked out better for me, as I can manage the content type/each column easier.
My main issue now is how to prevent duplicate/overlapping appointments? My other question is whether there is a way to have the employee receive a confirmation email after scheduling the appointment, or even a reminder email the day of.
