Hi all,

We very much support the Open Booking API specification, including the
guest checkout and multiple basket items features, however we have come up
against a few shortcomings when scoping our upcoming MCRactive project.

For those of you not aware off the Manchester project, we have just started
the process of building the following solutions to facilitate the MCRactive
membership scheme here in Manchester;

1. A Website, User Portal, Provider Portal and Standardised Booking systems
for MCC and Private/Independent sport and leisure services.

2. A central data depository capturing all opportunity and activity
participation data from both existing and future IT systems, which will in
turn support a single reporting and dashboard functionality.

If anyone would like more detail on the project, feel free to give me a
call as I am aware that there is not much detail in the above. As
mentioned, we are keen to promote the adoption of the Open Booking
specification within this far-reaching project, on the condition that it
can satisfy the additional (hopefully minor) requirements below:

   1. A mechanism to get a member ID using OAuth (similar to “log-in with
   Facebook”), in order to “link” a booking system account to an external
   account for later use.
   2. A mechanism to use Open Booking to book for specific member IDs,
   receiving their discounts as appropriate. We are anticipating that Member
   IDs may be stored and reused by the broker for this purpose.
   3. The ability to pass a unique ID for guest checkout attendees instead
   of an e-mail address, to allow us to identify and track junior attendees of
   guest bookings across systems.

I look forward to your responses.
