I have a complaint from several users that they can schedule a meeting to a resource, even if another meeting is already scheduled at the same time, creating this all conflicts. Help?

Overlapping meetings is allowed in Outlook 2010 forward (I am using Outlook 2016). It is unavoidable and the overlapping meetings sync into my iPhone as well.

I looked through Outlook Options (Calendar options) and there is no native way I can see to prevent this.

My guess is that a lot of us have overlapping meetings.

I cannot see anything that stops overlapping meetings. I think most of us need to able to accept and sort out which meeting will be cancelled (it may not be the newest one coming in). Automation cannot do this.
