While Date or Event combined with the Signup module allows individuals to register for events, the Resource Conflict module allows events to schedule the use of a specific resource. A "resource" can be anything; a user, a piece of equipment, a room, and so on. Multiple resources can be assigned to an event, and resources can never be booked for conflicting events.
Resource Conflict uses the Drupal content type system as well as CCK to provide the flexibility to book just about any kind of resource in any kind of context. This flexibility can make it difficult to set up for first-time users, especially those who are new to Drupal and may not be familiar with many core Drupal concepts. Instead of specifying a single method to set up Resource Conflict, the following pages show specific use cases and how Resource Conflict can be configured for each case.
