Calendar double booking (even with the right settings)
1
Hi, I manage multiple calendars for my organization. Recently, several of them are allowing double bookings, despite having "auto-accept invitations that do not conflict" checked. Are there any other options to ensure this doesn't happen? It is causing quite the issue in the office!

You can't automatically prevent double booking if the events are entered manually - calendar assumes that you are seeing and knowing what you are doing.
 
If you want to have events declined if there is already a booking, you need to cancel write access to that calendar and have all events going into it as event invitations. Then the check will take place.

 Go through your calendars sharing settings as described here https://support.google.com/calendar/answer/37082?hl=en

and make sure that the calendar is not shared with write access.
