Month long events

Postby Allan_F » Wed Dec 12, 2012 2:08 pm

I was wondering how most are handling month long events on their lds.org calendars. Our stake paper calendars included assignments made to the wards for the entire month in one of the blank day spots at the beginning or end of each monthly calendar, such as snow removal or building cleanup responsibilities for the month. Does anyone have a suggestion or work around for this?

Thanks

If it just goes in a blank space, you could put a "all day" event there.

Or you could have either an event for all month or a repeating all-day event. That will end up putting the "activity" up on the top of all the days.

That was my first thought, but if you click on a blank space on the calendar you end up adding information to the previous or subsequent month.

I was hoping to avoid that as you quickly end up with information overload. I guess I could make a new calendar that would only have the monthly information. What I was really hoping for was a sticky note type of thing that could be put somewhere on the calendar.

Oh, I misunderstood about "empty day". That would be nice, but could be a bit difficult to manage.

I think putting it on another calendar is probably the best answer.
