YSA Ward Calendar

Postby dlcampnell » Wed Oct 26, 2011 5:27 pm

Our YSA ward is just starting to use the new calendar system. We have wondered if we should consider doing the YSA Ward Activities Calendar as a STAKE calendar vs a WARD calendar so that the YSA members who attend family wards could easily view the YSA ward activities that are planned and therefore attend if they want to.

1. Does this seem like a good idea? are there reasons not to take this approach?
2. Is there another or better way to accomplish this purpose, ie. enabling the YSA members who attend a family ward to be able to view the YSA ward activity calendar?

It's a reasonable idea. One challenge you will probably face is that your ward clerks and leaders won't have administrative rights over those calendars. A stake administrator can certainly add various ward leaders as editors for the various calendars, but you will have to get help from the stake whenever you want to add or delete a calendar, or change editors for a calendar. But if you have a helpful ally at the stake level, that's certainly not an insurmountable problem.

I can't think of another way that is safely within policy. One marginal idea is to just have ward calendars, but have some member of the ward sync the ward calendar with a Google calendar, and then share that calendar with all the YSA members who attend family wards. You should not make such a calendar public (that is a clear violation of Church policy), but limited sharing might work. But it's a maintenance headache to figure out how to include all those YSA members who attend family wards and add and remove them as they move in and out.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.
