Feature Request: Assigning an event to multiple calendars

Postby lance.c.larsen » Sat Jan 07, 2012 11:51 am

Is it possible to add the ability to associate an event with multiple calendars. Here is the problem. There are events in the ward that apply to multiple organizations, but not the full ward (for example young men and young women). Right now if you want an event on both schedules, you create two separate events. There are a few problems with this.

  • If you Register for multiple calendars, you get a bunch of repeated events that clutter your calendar.
  • it becomes more difficult to manage the event when there are changes.


It seems like allowing an event to be associated with multiple calendars is a good solution to this issue.

Others have requested this, but it is not currently possible. The issue is discussed in the help system under Publishing to multiple calendars at once. It has been discussed on this forum multiple times; see the thread Calendar tags vs separate calendars and threads linked from that thread.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.

I believe in that example, most units work around it be creating a YM, YW, and Combined YM/YW calendars. Given the number of times they combine events, that does seem like the best solution at the moment.
