Am I able to PREVENT double bookings?

Is there a way to make it impossible for two meetings to be booked at the same time?  At the moment if someone does this it gives a double booking warning, but then still allows for the double booking to happen of course if you choose.  I want it to be impossible for this to happen.  Is there a way?

 

Ideally this would be for meetings only, it doesn't matter if calls get double booked.

 

Thanks for the help!

Not currently an option in Act! ... It would be possible with a custom plugin

But it would get considerably more complex in a sync environment

What if you attached a resource for each meeting such a "Meeting Room A"

 

Act! does not allow the users to double book resources.

Thanks will look in to the resource idea Jim.  Only problem is that would require us to change the way we book every appointment which may be more trouble than it's worth.  If staff took more care we wouldn't have the problem in the first place!
