How do we make events from other wards visible?

Postby fletch74 » Thu Jul 31, 2014 10:30 pm

I believe one of the principal purposes of the stake calendar is visibility or, i.e., stake-wide awareness of what events are scheduled, when, and where.

However, it appears, at least in our stake, we're unable to see events scheduled by another ward, until we try to schedule something for the same time/location . . . Is this by design? If so, I'm really confused and (forgive me) frustrated because I'm confident we'd save a number of headaches and befuddlement if we knew who had what resources scheduled and when.

Are we able to "turn on" this kind of information? If so, how? If not, where do we "cast in [our] voices" to make a change request?

Thanks.

Sort of. It is by design that you cannot see the events themselves. However, you can see if resources are occupied by switching to Week View and checking the facility of interest on the left hand-side. That will take the guesswork out of scheduling.

Thank you, Russell! While I really wish we could do this on the "Month" view (particularly because I imagine it's the default for many users), I'm elated to learn it's at least possible and how.

Thanks, again! How do I "up vote" your response for reputation points? =D

I suppose reputation points would probably be taboo on tech.lds.org . . . :-)
