Fixes

Description

Non-VC Template

 

Users Could Not Book from Non-VC Template When Resources Were Booked in Another Room

Users could not book a room that was tied to a resource through a standard NON – VC web process template.

Fix: Modified functionality so that users can make a reservation in a regular process template because the template disregards the Resource inventory.
