Improve Program Center Reservation Process GH1167/1168/1169/1175/1176/1177
Submitting a room reservation for the Seattle Program Center is incredibly time consuming and there is a lot of room for error. For example, the calendar does not show which room is reserved, so you have to click on each event so you can see if the room you want is available. If you're looking for a room in a future month (which is often the case), each time you go back to the calendar, it defaults to the current month, so you then have to scroll again to the date you're looking for and click on the next event to see which room its in. If you forget to click "all events" on the side navigation first, or if you mess up the tag, then you risk submitting a request, thinking it was submitted but later learning that Shauna never received it. Also, all of the date drop-downs are time consuming - can we get rid of past years? The search function for "Seattle Program Center" makes it very difficult to find as well. All of the steps are time consuming, and there are a lot of steps and a lot of room for mistakes. It would be great to make all of this easier.
Clicking on an item on a calendar opens a popup with info about the activity including a link to the full event details. This prevents you from losing your place in the calendar.
Allow users to delete stuff which has not yet been submitted to Bria/Shauna (John Ohlson)
It'd also be great for committees/volunteer leaders to cancel internal reservations online.

Might I add the details for the reservation are not confirmed by email, or visible at all when checking the event. E.G. How may were booked for, chairs count, tables, projector? mikes? etc. When booking months in advance, it is hard to recall those details, or to share.

Thanks, Becca, for submitting this! The only thing I would like to add is that it would be wonderful if there was a search function specifically for rooms, e.g. find all dates Goodman C is available in February or March from 6-9pm.
