Calendar for booking equipment?

Copper Contributor

I have a team that use a shared piece of equipment, and we want to be able to "book" it. I was hoping to use a calendar within our Team page, but I don't want this syncing with everyone's personal calendars because that would confuse our schedules. I tried the Bookings app, but this was more set up for bookings between clients and customers rather than staff with a piece of equipment, any ideas?

 

Basically we want a simple way to visually check what time slots are available for some equipment, and for it to tell you if you try to book it during someone else's time. Thanks!

Use an equipment mailbox? That way you will be able to book it just like any room.

A simple alternative I can think is to create a custom Microsoft Lists list where you define required columns to manage the equipment including booking start date and booking end date and them configure a calendar view in the list
