adding locations

Postby dattels » Fri Feb 08, 2013 1:56 pm

I am the stake schedular. When I go to reservations, there are several locations indicated. My own ward is not one of them. I went to recommended Settings>Locations and Rooms. Guess what! There is not access to Locations and Rooms from Settings. How do I add a location?

One stake - 5 wards.

Are you saying that your ward's building isn't shown? (Perhaps it's under a name you don't recognize.) Is that building shared with another unit? Perhaps in another stake?

First, are you a stake administrator? Members in the following callings are default stake administrators for the calendar: Stake president, Stake presidency first counselor, Stake presidency second counselor, Stake executive secretary, Stake clerk, Stake assistant clerk, Stake assistant clerk - finance, Stake assistant clerk - membership, Stake assistant clerk - technology specialist, Stake assistant executive secretary, Stake website administrator, and Stake building specialist.

Your calling as a stake scheduler does not grant you administrator rights unless you have one of the callings listed for default administrator or your calling or your name has been added by a default administrator to be an administrator. Building Schedulers do not have administrator rights by virtue of the position. I am assuming you are a building scheduler even though your calling is stake scheduler since you can make reservations.

If you do not have administrator rights then you will not have access to Settings > Locations & Rooms and you will need to contact one of the stake administrators to add the location. Also note that locations are meetinghouses or other places that can be scheduled for events. Wards will not be listed in locations, but rather the meetinghouses the wards meet in will be listed. If the meetinghouse is named for the ward, or one of the wards meeting there, then it may appear that the wards are listed as locations.

Note that you do NOT want to have one location per ward. (Maybe - if each ward has their own building. But in the long run that naming convention may come back to bite as things change.) You must have one and only one location per building - otherwise it's possible to double-book.
