Ward and Stake Administrator Roles and Rights

Postby meyersmj » Wed Nov 28, 2012 1:05 pm

I'm new to working with calendar. Recently assigned to manage scheduling at a Stake level which means I'm responsible to train building schedulers, etc. I read through the help topics but I am still not clear on the role and rights of Ward and Stake adiminstrators. It appears they have all the rights of a calendar editor, building scheduler, create reservations, create events, etc. or other words they can do almost everything. I would appreciate some enlightenment and clarity.

Administrators have editor rights to all public calendars for their area of responsibility, ie, stake administrators for stake calendars and ward administrators for ward calendars. A stake administrator has administrator rights for stake calendars but not ward calendars. Stake administrators also have the ability to manage locations. A stake administrator does not have building scheduler rights. But a stake administrator can assign any member of the stake as a building scheduler, including themselves. Only building schedulers can create reservations. If you need building scheduler rights you can add yourself as a building scheduler. But until you have building scheduler rights you cannot make reservations.

Administrator is not the same as a building scheduler (at least at a ward level; I'm assuming stake admin is the same).

A building scheduler can make reservations, whereas others cannot (even administrators cannot do this). Be sure to read threads on this forum about reservations. They can get you into lots of trouble if you don't understand them.

I believe a building scheduler can also unbook locations from scheduled events.

The names of building schedulers also shows up on the calendar.
