Scheduling and Reserving Resources for Multiple Unit Resources

Postby blwengr » Thu Nov 10, 2011 7:58 am

Can the new calendar be used to schedule and reserve resources such as camps that are used by more than one stake? Who would be allowed to do this?

No, the new calendar can't do that. See the "Locations and Resources Shared by Multiple Stakes" section in the help system under Setting Up Locations.

However, there is a new site at https://camping.lds.org/ that will eventually have scheduling. According to the Recreation Properties Version Road Map that will be in Version 2.3, but I have no idea when that might be released.

For whatever reason, that link doesn't work for me. It appears one has to be logged into the calendar for it to work.

The new help system for the Calendar does require you to be logged in. But if you're not logged in, you should be prompted to sign in with your LDS Account and then you will be redirected to the correct page. I figure anyone who is asking questions about the calendar is either logged in or can easily log in to see the help page. And that page gives the specific answer, so I thought a link would be helpful.

At least that's the way it works for me. Are you not able shown the sign-in page if you are not logged in when you follow the link? And are you not then taken to the correct page after you sign in?

I'd consider that "working". If I'm not logged in, I get the frame and an eternal "Loading" spinning wheel. Same result in both IE9 and Chrome. Even if I trim off the "#" and everything after it.

Upon further testing, I get inconsistent results. I can indeed see the behavior you describe on occasion, and I also get a nice clean sign-in page followed by display of the help page on other occasions. I have to think it's somehow related to browser caching, since if I clear my browser cache it works fine every time.
