Bookings Improvements / Suggestions.

We use it for managing bookings of a small digital theater with 40 seats, but there's three issues we have with the system that would be great to get addressed.

1. When viewing the calendar you can't see details of the school that is in a booking, just that there is a booking. So to find the school to confirm numbers or details on the booking, is time consuming going in and out of each entry to find the correct one you want.

2. you need to have admin rights on the whole system to see the calendar, I'd love the ability for reception to book the bookings and other staff to see the bookings but I can't see how. So everyone has to have admin rights and this means anyone can make a mistake on any booking.

3. we have 40 seats in the theater, if we have a school of 10 kids, I'd love the ability to know there's 30 seats left for other similar aged schools, currently it's very manual and need to go into every booking that day, then add them up, then see if the school looking to attend can fit that day. if not, try the next day and repeat! Takes a lot of time when if you hovered over the booking, you could see capacity used or free that would be great.
