Edit Booking > Resolve Booking Conflict

Alternate Room Not Shown on Attendee Calendar

When resolving booking conflicts by selecting an alternative room, users' invitations to attendees did not update their calendars with the new location. 

Fix: Modified invitations to ensure that Outlook calendars reflect the alternate location once accepted.

EMS Internal Reference # 23230

Moved Meetings Not Reflected on Calendar When Clicking Proceed Without Alternate  

When users resolved booking conflicts for recurrent meetings by moving the appointment and clicking the Proceed Without Alternate button in the Resolve Conflict window, although this canceled the meeting in conflict, attendees received a notification only about time changes and the event remained on their Outlook calendars and showed the location and EMS ID.

Fix: Modified the app so that attendees now receive a cancellation notice in Outlook when appropriate, and the EMS ID and location are cleared from moved appointments.

EMS Internal Reference # 22923

Edit Booking > Update Recurrence/Time

Updating Recurrence/Time and Clicking View Reservation Causes Error

When users changed a recurring meeting's time, schedule, or recurrence pattern and then clicked the View Reservation button, an error occurred:

"The reservation window has been closed due to an error caused by a loaded component."

Fix: Modified the display so that the error no longer occurs and clicking the View Reservation button now presents the reservation as designed.

Favorite Rooms

Favorite Rooms Still Appear After Deletion from User Options

When users deleted favorite rooms from User Options > My Account > My Favorites, they still showed in the Favorites list during new bookings.
