Calendar and High Council Advisors

Postby chadmitchell » Sun Jan 09, 2011 4:36 pm

The info pages for the new calendar includes this:
"High councilors who oversee a ward (presumably not their own) cannot see that ward's calendars. This will be fixed in an upcoming release. However, as a workaround, designate the high councilor as a calendar editor on any calendar in the ward or stake, or as an approver. The high councilor will then see a Subscribed Locations section below the Subscribed Calendars section. The Subscribed Locations allows you to see all events taking place at the location, regardless of the ward."

We tried the recommended solution. But we have not been able to find a way to add the High Council Advisor as an approver or as a calendar editor. When we try to add them in either role, it only matches names from within the ward membership. Since they are not ward members, there does not seem to be a way to do what the web page suggests. Has anyone else been able to get the work-around to work?

I haven't tried this myself but I believe the high councilor needs to be added as an editor or approver in their home ward or as an editor or approver for a stake calendar. Once they are an editor on one of those they should be able to see the Subscribed Locations section.

Does anyone know if this option for a High Councilman with a Ward responsibility was added to the newest calendar release? Or is the method to have that HC be added as an editor on each of the Ward's calendars?

I'm curious as to why you'd need to have them as a editor. Especially to all the Ward calendars. That would be SN unusually active role for an advisor.

We use a stake calendar for things like bishopric training.

Adding a high councilor as an editor seems unnecessary, but enabling the assigned high councilor to see the ward calendar for his assigned ward does seem useful. But in any case, there was no change in this functionality in the latest calendar release.

The original documentation mentioned in this thread's original post was misleading in this regard; there is no need for any member of the stake to be an editor or administrator in order to use the Assigned Locations feature in Week View to see the events taking place at a building. But that is a rather weak workaround, since it doesn't show all of a ward's events, and it shows events for all the wards in the building, with no easy way to distinguish among those wards.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.
