Creating calendar--Unique calendar name required error

Postby doncarl » Fri Mar 22, 2013 10:24 am

Hello, I can't seem to create a new private calendar for my ward. I enter all the information as instructed in the video tutorial, but it then tells me "Sorry, you must correct the highlighted areas before you can save.The name of the calendar is required to be unique." With the highlighted area being the area of the calendar name of course.

Help please.

Chances are there's already a calendar by that name. You may not be able to see it, or it may be waiting for deletion.

Another possibility is that perhaps you're using a character in it's name that's not allowed.

Are you trying to add other editors at the same time you are adding the calendar? Last time I created a private calendar I got that error as well. When I tried creating it first with only myself as editor and then adding additional editors after creation, it worked.

Thanks russellhltn and eblood66. I tried different names but still not accepted. Then I erased the viewer/editors and tried to create and that worked. You hit the nail on the head eblood66, thanks again.
