    If you have configured the uspgObjectBookingVerify user stored procedure, Synergetic runs that procedure against your booking to check its validity, in addition to the standard stored procedure to check booking validity. For example, you may want to check that a student is over the age of eighteen before allowing them to book a room. Synergetic does not allow invalid bookings to be created.
