Potential Conflicts

Postby greglebaron » Sun Jan 01, 2012 5:20 pm

I posted an event and a number of potential conflicts were identified, even beyond the existing window (I would have had to scroll down to see all of them). Before I could review all the potential conflicts, the window disapeared. How can I bring the window back or print all the potential conflicts so I can review them?

You can edit the event slightly (even just add a space at the end of the description) and save it. Then you'll see the conflict list again.

I still end up woth the same problem -- it disappears before I can review all the potential conflicts. Can anything be done to capture the list? Or do I just need to make several changes t bring it up several times?

I know that it's awkward to capture it. One possible technique is to make your browser window as tall as possible, and when the potential conflict list appears, do a screen capture right away (on Windows, Alt+PrtScn will copy the current application's screen to the clipboard), which you can then paste into Paint or some other graphics application.

I have a couple of different locations as resources for the Stake, a Stake Center, and a Bowery. I have a private Calendat titled Other Resource Scheduling to put weddings, reunions and such and not have them appear on the Stake Calendar. However when I schedule a reunion in the Bowery, and there is a Stake Baptism in the Stake Center it warns me of a potential conflict even when they are in different locations. Any way to not have these false alarms?

While I understand you find it annoying, I think on a whole it's desirable. For example, you might be scheduling a RS event the same time as a "general membership" event. There may not be a conflict for resources, but there might be one for the target membership.

It's simply making you aware of what else is going on at the same time.
