Calendar Function - Add external calendar sync filter

Postby moberle » Mon Oct 15, 2012 9:14 am

From another thread:

RussellHltn wrote:The sync syncs all the calendars you are subscribed to. The checkboxes on the main page only affect the web calendar. You'll have to go to the subscription page to control what gets synced. Note that removing something from the sync also removes the checkbox from the main page.



I suppose I'll post this over in the Ideas... forum but I believe there may be a better way to do this. I too do not want all subscribed calendars (although I select/deselect calendars frequently in the web UI) to go sync. I'd like to restrict it.

The subscription controls the sync and the calendar selector. It would be more effective if the subscription populated the calendar selector and that sync has it's own settings. The subscription would be the main point of control for the calendars that can be viewed. The selector in the UI would select what is shown in the web UI. A sync filter would dictate which of the subscribed calendars would be pushed.

I moved this to the Calendar forum. The Ideas forum is really for new ideas that don't already have a section on the forum. By posting in the Calendar forum your calendar suggestions will be connected to the other calendar issues, and the big bonus is that Church employees working on the Calendar are much more likely to see your suggestion here.

You're certainly not the only one who would like to see this; see these threads:

Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.
