Our scheduler reported that he scheduled the "rose jpg" event on August 11. The YW event was scheduled several months ago.

I just tried that now, I can't duplicate it. I assume the conflicting room is a "custom" room. Is the building a "regular" one or was it added? (Does the "Remove" button appear when you go to edit the location?)

Were there any edits along the way - perhaps a change that turned a non-conflict into a conflict (such as a change in starting date. Or a change in locations?)

While I don't see how it could do it, any chance the first event was saved during PST as it appears the second event was saved in PDT?

The conflict room is a 'custom' room. It is a regular building. Possible that there were edits along the way. The old one was a recurring appointment ( 3 wks/month) potential exception edits along the way, but unsure of that). for this there wouldn't have been a change in locations - but possibly the most recent added one was added without locations, and then location added later.
Yes, based upon the recurrance, the older recurring event was scheduled prior to PST/PDT change last spring.

I agree, this is a puzzle.

We've struggled to duplicate this one. If anyone has some good steps, that would be helpful.

Can you please explain how restrictions are different? I have a restriction for the entire building classified as "blocked - location unavailable - entire facility" and NOT assigned to a ward. But yet the ward was able to book the Cultural Hall for the same time period. I can understand the ward booking the space if I had classified it to the ward, but I have it as blocked. Please explain.
(I tried to include a screenshot but I'm not able to paste.)

You can lay a "blocked" restriction overtop of an existing event. So using "blocked" to insure exclusive use is not a good idea.

But as a building scheduler, you also have the ability to schedule an "event" on the building calendar. That will behave just like an event and not allow co-existence with another event. In that same situation, you would receive a warning and would not be able to schedule your "block" event. The only difference is that the event will not sync externally like a ward or stake event could.

I don't know. Have you tried contacting LDS.org about it? They could help you. But, I've never heard of this before.
