Calendar Event View

Postby prellsworth » Mon Sep 19, 2011 8:07 pm

A couple of concerns I can't seem to work around:

1. When I click on an event on the calendar page it takes me directly to the editing view instead of just displaying the event details. While it's nice to have such direct access to the editing feature on that event I find that sometime I just want to see the details of that event without risking accidentally editing the event. Taking me to the event details and providing an "edit" link within the details window would seem to make more sense.

2. Speaking of the event details. When someone clicks on an event link in the calendar the details of that event pull up but the window containing the description write-up of the event is so small that it virtually serves no purpose. For example, I set up a "Quarterly Report" calendar with an event that shows up on the auxiliary secretaries' calendars. In the event description I wrote up all of the specifics of what each auxiliary needs to provide to the clerk. My fear is that the description is so small in the event details window that no one will even pay attention to what is written there. The event details should look more like an email dialog box with the immediate details on top and the description below.

Thanks!
And I really do love the evolution of the calendar and the advancement of all the LDS web applications.

Not sure what you're referring to, but if it's the sync, check out Post #155 of the Workaround Thread. It's what I use.

I was actually referring in general to the Android platform not being addressed well. (e.g. the differences between the functions in LDSTools on the iphone vs. on an Android). Perhaps I shouldn't have mentioned it there. I hope it doesn't dilute my bigger points about the calendar events views I brought up. Thanks for the link though, I'll check it out.

Welcome phil!
That action you see is, of course, because you are an editor. And yes, I've accidentally dragged an event before, and there is no undo! I've often wished for something similar...the ability to log-on and decide if I wish to log on as an editor, and do those tasks, or as a viewer, and see what my ward members are seeing and experiencing or to check something.
