Everything missing from my stake calendar

Postby ashworthje » Fri Oct 19, 2012 9:39 am

When I went to my stake calendar, there wasn't anything there. I think that in making the new calendar, you didn't make it so stuff that was on the old calendar would be transferred to the new calendar.

If by the old calendar you are referring to the calendar at the Classic site, also called the Local Unit Web Site, and by the new calendar you are referring to the calendar at LDS.org, then you are correct. The information from the calendar at the Classic site did not transfer to the new calendar at the LDS.org site.

When the transition to the new calendar was begun last year (earlier, actually), it was intended that events would be placed on the Classic calendar to a certain point (say, for example, the end of 2011), and then events after the transition point (for example, the beginning of 2012) would be placed on the new calendar at LDS.org.

Some chose to overlap the two calendars for a time, but those who did so had to maintain the various calendar events in two different places. There was never any linkage between the two.

That is correct. The functionality of the new calendar system is quite different then the old one. So automatically transferring it would create more problems.

A stake calendar administrator can import events from the Classic calendar. See [url=https://ue.ldschurch.org/ldsapphelp/calendar/#help_topics/initial_setup.htm#import-events-from-another-calendar]Import Events from Another Calendar[/url] in the help system for details. Note that the import is not perfect and requires manual cleanup after the import (particularly to set location information on the events). But it is an option that is available.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.

I was going to mention that, but couldn't find the function. It turns out it only dispalys in "settings" when you're in the main calendar screen. I haven't tried them all, but it doesn't appear in any of the other screens I've tried. The help file fails to mention that detail.
