Is it possible to be given viewing rights for calendars outside of your unit?

Postby jbb89777 » Tue Jul 03, 2012 10:46 am

I know that in order for public calendars to be viewed with all the event details, a person needs to have their records in that unit. Only the calendars for your own ward/stake are visible when viewing in the month format. However, I seem to remember exceptions to this needing to be made in certain situations...

I have a high counselor that wants to view the YSA branch calendars but he needs to leave his records in his home ward. Is there a way for stake leaders to view the public ward/branch calendars that they do not have their records in (more than hunting for the activities in the WEEK mode of the calendar where all scheduled activities are visible)? We do not want to make the branch calendars into stake calendars, which of course would be visible to all. Do I as stake web admin (or someone from the branch) have the capability of granting him viewing rites based on calling or by name?

Thanks,

This is not possible currently. A Church employee/developer has acknowledged that this feature is being considered.

No. Currently, only the members of a unit can view the calendars of that unit.

Out of unit leaders have the same viewing/editing rights as leaders called from the unit membership. This gives them the ability to view not only their home unit calendars but the calendars of the unit in which they serve.
