Add Capability in web.config To Set Refresh Interval For My Bookings

Fixes 

Area Description
Check In
Check-In Status Cut Off 
The "Checked In" status that displayed on the My Bookings window was cut off.

Fix: Increased width setting for the status display so that the entire text for "Checked In" is visible..
Check-In Button Persisted When Loading Checked-In Status 
When users checked into a room, the Check In button continued to display while the Checked In status was loading, which was especially noticeable for customers with large numbers of users and events which required additional loading time. Repeatedly clicking the Check In button, especially for users who had auto-refresh turned off, could cause the meeting to be ended prematurely. 

Fix: Modified the Check In button so that it is greyed out and not clickable during the process of loading the Checked In status, and added functionality to validate when the user is already checked in so that clicking the button repeatedly does not result in End Now.
Floor Maps
Floor Map Indicators Misaligned
Indicators on floor maps were slightly up and to the right, which made them difficult to see on large floor maps.  

Fix: Modified the display so floor map indicators center on their location on floor map images.
Create Reservation
Search Option Absent For Billing Reference When Adding Services
When users added a service to a reservation that had no available resources, the Search option was unavailable so they could not look up Billing Reference numbers.

Fix: Modified functionality to ensure that the Search option is available for the Billing Reference field.
"Please Enter a Valid Time" Error Incorrectly Displayed When Local Timezone Used DST
When users booked events from a different time zone than the server, and left the default value in the Start Time field, the error, "Please Enter a Valid Time" incorrectly displayed due to miscalculations for Daylight Savings time.

Fix: Modified calculations to ensure that DST time zone offsets are calculated properly when the user's time zone is different than the server time zone so the error no longer displays.
Search For Names Containing Apostrophes Caused Internal Server Error
When users clicked the Search icon to search for names containing apostrophes, an Internal Server Error occurred.  

Fix: Modified search functionality to properly interpret apostrophes in search strings so the error no longer occurs.
Event Time Miscalculated for Daylight Savings
When users booked an event using an Exchange template that had a specific date set, and then changed the date and time such that Daylight Savings time had to be automatically calculated, the event time was incorrect on the Manage Bookings page.  

Fix: Modified daylight savings time calculations to ensure that the event time is correctly calculated when daylight savings is involved. .
Edit Reservation
Exchange Integration: Changing Recurrent Reservation Caused Error
When users changed the location, date, or time for recurring reservations, the error "There was a problem updating the meeting in the calendaring system" occurred and the change did not show in attendees' calendars.  

Fix: Modified daylight savings time calculations to ensure that event time is correctly calculated so the error does not occur.
Edit Booking
Exchange Integration: Apostrophes in Email Addresses Caused Error
When users with apostrophes in their email addresses attempted to edit bookings in systems with Exchange integration, the error, "We could not locate this booking in your calendaring system" occurred and they could not edit the booking.

Fix: Modified encoding for email addresses to Exchange so that apostrophes are properly interpreted and the error no longer occurs.
Event Duration Defaulted Incorrectly When Adding New Location
When users added a new location to an existing meeting, the meeting duration incorrectly defaulted to one hour and they could not change it. This affected room search results and enabled them to select a room in conflict.

Fix: Modified validations so that the original meeting duration is retained for the new location and users can edit it as expected.
