It appears that because the "bishop's office" is not one of the locations offered, it does not allow me to save the item. Have others found this to be the case? or am I missing something?
If you need to be able to schedule the bishop's office (and that does indeed seem like a useful thing), then add the bishop's office as a custom resource to the location (building). If you don't have rights to add resources, ask your building scheduler or a stake approver to do so.

It is not possible to bypass the "check for conflicts" step. To do so would invite chaos, since resources could then be double scheduled.
The one way you can effectively bypass the "check for conflicts" step is to not reserve anything. Specifically, use "Other Location" instead of your building as the location. Then you will certainly be able to save the event. But of course you won't be reserving any room. It's better to add the specific resource you need to reserve.
