staff can order some extra services with each room. To make
this happen, Peter performs the following steps:
Create a Services list app.
Create a calendar app.
Create a,Services??? column in the new calendar.
This column is of the lookup type, and it fetches items
from the "Services" list.
Save the calendar as a template.

Add all calendars to an Overlay view.
As all calendars are displayed in the same view, users can
quickly have an overview over what resources have been booked
and find free time slots for resources they need.
