With the release of LDS.org Calendar 2.7, help for Church calendar users is redesigned with new content and new navigation. The new Help uses menus, section numbers, and hyperlinks to get you to what you need to see the easiest and fastest way possible.

Jed Black, Senior Calendar Knowledge Specialist, shared this: “There are no calendars by calling. Callings fit into roles for creating, editing, and viewing the calendar.” The result is a role-based tool which simplifies user interaction with the calendar help system. To increase functionality for all types of preferences, the calendar help also features an extensive Index, Glossary, and training PDFs.
