Nothing comes up except my "home" building. I don't see any way for me to view the other locations in our stake (we have 5) even when the Week View is selected.
Does this picture help?
If you want to see the Riverside building, you need to put a checkmark next to it. I'm not a building scheduler in my stake, but I can see all the buildings in week view. My understanding is that any member can see this.

We've had members who feel (self-)important enough to bother the stake presidency, blasting past the scheduler over scheduling conflicts (which is why it was delegated, right?). We do use the restriction function, but of course, since only a few folks can post events, it's sort of redundant.
Wow. And what does the stake president do about it? Something tells me he's not backing his scheduler. (Of course there's the possibility that the scheduler isn't handing things very well.)

That doesn't help. I'll have to double-check, but I think our HC is restricted to the stake. I also set it up as a separate building to avoid the "entire facility" issue. Of course my next question is who is letting them into the room? Or did they hand out HC keys to the ward leaders as well?

Someone got the use of the facility, but a higher priority organization needs it when something changed. That's going to come up regardless of what system is used. There's a deeper problem going on, and it's going to take leadership to fix it. Sure, the calendar could be better. We've been wanting some fixes for some time. But short of replacing the building scheduler with IBM's Watson, I don't see technology as the solution to what you've described.
