Calendar slot checking

Dear fellow creators,

Is it possible to perform calendar slot checking before adding new event to calendar? Like scheduling for machine operation, to avoid overlapping.

Thank you very much.

Yes. You would, using expressions, check the Start/End DateTimes of the Event you are entering against those already entered into the system.

There are some risks to be aware of. Since this is a distributed multi-user system, if two users were trying to enter an Event for the same time slot at roughly the same time, you might get some overlapped entries on occasion. The more users entering such event data, the more likely an overlap to occur.

You will need to weigh the known usage of your app, specifically with event entry, and determine if the risk is acceptable.

Here’s a sample that might be relevant:
