Equipment resource calendar - allow limited number of conflicts automatically
When requesting equipment from a resource calendar allow XX number of conflicts automatically, based on admin defined setting, and then decline others beyond the set limits.
The idea here is that an equipment calendar for each item seems overkill. For instance we have three projectors that can be borrowed. I have a single equipment resource for all three. Currently we have allow conflicts set but then we must have the resource delegated. The delegate makes sure that no more than three conflicts (the number of projectors on hand) are allowed. If there was a setting where the admin could define how many conflicts are allowed and decline any beyond that number this could be automated. So in this case if three conflicts were allowed in this setting the fourth request and further would be auto declined.

This should also apply to resource rooms with multiple "stations". Currently we can set capacity limits for a single meeting and can allow for multiple concurrent meetings, but cannot set a maximum number of conflicts unless it is for re-occurring meetings. This limitation feels unnecessary.
