selecting synched calendars to view

Discussions about the Calendar Tool at lds.org. Questions about the calendar on the classic site should be posted in the LUWS forum.

selecting synched calendars to view

Postby toniki » Sat Feb 09, 2013 9:59 am

It looks like when we synch our LDS calendars to google they all become one single calendar (instead of separate YM, YW, RS, etc.). Is there any workaround, to enable us to turn on/off selective viewing of calendars in google?

In Google? No. But if you go into calendar on lds.org and into the Subscription page, you can control what calendars are synced to Google.

But note that anything you remove from the Subscription will be missing from the calendar main page as well. (We have requested for that to change.)
Have you searched the Wiki?

thanks. Can I unsubscribe from everything except one calendar (e.g., the ward YM calendar) in my church calendar and synch it, then unsubscribe from everything except another calendar (e.g., the ward YW calendar) and synch it, and so on, going calendar by calendar, and then go back and subscribe to everything in the church calendar (so I keep seeing everything when I view the calendar from the church website) but not synch again? Will each of the individual calendars then be individually synched to my google calendar from then on?

no, I just realized that's not going to work, since each time I synch to google it invalidates the previous synch URL. I guess there's no way to enable google to see all these church calendars as separate calendars.

This has been discussed multiple times. The most promising post (although it's over a year old now) is this post, where a Church employee discusses how an option to sync different calendars might be implemented. There's some interesting discussion in that topic both before and after the post I linked to.
