Create a Private Reservation Calendar (Show events as Busy or Unavailable)

Show your event title as "Busy" or "Unavailable" if a User is not allowed to edit this event.

To set this option:

Login as a calendar administrator -> Go to Admin Menu -> Options ->Advanced Options Tab -> Check the box in the "Show Events As Busy" section.  Note: The text  to display in the event title can be customized.

The Busy event feature can be used in conjunction with category options to set up a private, Self Service Booking Calendar.  Category settings would be option D 'Logged in users can add / edit own events and F 'Prevent conflicting events'.

You would then create a different user account for each user allowed to add events but not make them a manager or administrator.  Then the user can login and add / edit events but will only see the 'busy text' for other user's events.  Conflict prevention will prevent two users from booking the same time slot.
