Who Am I?

Postby WWS36 » Wed Jul 20, 2011 1:40 pm

I am the Stake Admin and a Ward Admin.
I did NOT run the Wizard initially in our Stake. The Stake Exec. Sec. did that, so he became the 'Main Man' initially.
My calling was corrected to a Starred position and now I can do Stake duties i.e. I can set up locations and such.
My problem is that I don't know how to tell which 'hat' I am wearing, as I use the same login for both Stake & Ward duties. Does this make sense or am I totally out in left field???:confused:

When you are logged in, you are always wearing both 'hats' in a sense, since you can do either ward or stake duties without logging in again. In the Calendar, there are separate calendars for the stake and the ward. If you are working on a stake calendar, you are wearing the "stake hat" and if you are working on a ward calendar, you are wearing a "ward hat." Certain functions such as administering locations are available to you only because of your stake position.

I suppose it could be confusing at times, but I think you just need to think not so much about what "hat" you are wearing, but rather which item you want to work on. If you need to add a stake youth fireside to the calendar, then make sure you are working on a stake-level calendar. If you are scheduling a ward Christmas party, make sure you are working on a ward-level calendar.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.

From your avitar, I'd say you're wearing the pointy black one. ;)

AFAIK, you're both. I'm guessing the real problem is knowing which calender you're working with at a given time? Some adjustments to the names might be a good idea. "High Priests" could be either ward or stake.
