Orphaned calendar building reservations

Postby DavePeterson » Wed Jun 14, 2017 12:25 pm

We are a new stake that has finally gotten our buildings updated in FMAT so that we can manage "Locations & Resources" in the lds.org Calendar app. It appears that in the process of creating the new stake from the old stake, there are some "orphaned reservations" from the old stake's calendar that we cannot edit or delete. They may still be on the old stake's calendar - not certain as I can no longer manage the old stake calendar. These orphaned reservations are blocking our ability to specify true buildings/locations on our calendars. So I'd really like some help getting those orphaned reservations cleaned up so we can manage the calendar in the new stake the way we need to. Any guidance on how to get rid of orphaned reservations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

If you're the agent stake, you should be able to assign a building scheduler to that building in the calendar and then they can alter/remove the reservation/activity. (But if it's an activity, I'd be sure to communicate to the other stake first so they can move the event rather then have it mysteriously canceled.)

"should be able to" is the key phrase here. My wife is the building scheduler for this temporary stake center. And I wish it were working. Unfortunately, no dice. As counselor in the stake presidency I cannot alter or remove the reservation/activity. And as building scheduler she cannot either. It truly appears to be orphaned. I am in the process of checking with a member of the stake presidency of the old stake to see if they can still see the reservation/activity and do anything with it. Fingers crossed...

That calling won't give you sufficient rights. However, you can add yourself as a building scheduler to that location. That would give you the rights.

My wife, who is the building schedule, could not edit or delete. However, when I added myself as a building scheduler, I was able to modify and delete. Not sure why I could and my wife couldn't, but thanks for the help. Problem taken care of...

Which makes me wonder if she's a building scheduler of that location in name only. If you go in where you added yourself and don't see her name, then that explains it.

She does show up in the Locations & Resources area as a scheduler for that location.

Odd. Not sure why she wasn't able to do it.

Maybe the transfer from one stake to another caused her to get disconnected from her permissions somehow. You could try removing and re-adding her.

It's worth a try, but unless she moved with the building, I doubt if she was a building scheduler before. Only the agent stake can assign building schedulers.
