Create New Calendar

Postby spurrowell » Wed Oct 17, 2012 9:46 pm

What is a unique name? I create the calendar but it won't go into the pending status- it says The name of the calendar must be unique? Help.

It must be a name that's not the same as any other calendar in the unit. For example, you can't have two calendars with the same name. You can't have two "Youth Activities", or two "Relief Society" calendars.

A "Unique Name" may not be the issue. I had this problem when I was trying to create a private calendar for our HPGL use. I found that I had to create the calendar first, then (after it was approved) go into editor mode and add the additional members of my Group Leadership. If I tried to create the calendar with everyone already on it, I received the same message as spurrowell.

My calendar has the same name as what was rejected the first time as a non-unique name so I know the name wasn't the problem. It was really frustrating as I tried and tried to come up with a unique name, only to see everything rejected.
