Building Scheduler cannot see "Locations and Rooms" tab

Postby ceolsen » Fri Nov 25, 2011 4:13 am

We defined the Ward Executive Secretary for one of the Wards in a building in our Stake as the "Building Scheduler". He can perform most of the functions normally associated with this assignment, only not those on the "Locations and Rooms" tab, for instance, defining "rooms" in the building. He can see the "[font=Helv][size=84]Edit Location" by clicking the [font=Helv][size=84][font=Helv][size=84]"down arrow" beside the "Silver Star Building" location, but he is taken to the "Edit Calendar" page, rather than "Edit Location". In the header, where I see the following, he does not see "Locations and Rooms":[/SIZE][/font][/SIZE][/font][/SIZE][/font]
[font=Helv][size=84][font=Helv][size=84][/SIZE][/font][/SIZE][/font]
[font=Helv][size=84][font=Helv][size=84][font=Courier][size=75][font=Courier][size=75][color=#0000ff][font=Courier][size=75][color=#0000ff]Calendars Administrators Locations and Rooms Reservations Subscriptions Sync Setup & Import[/color][/SIZE][/font][/color][/SIZE][/font][/SIZE][/font][/SIZE][/font][/SIZE][/font]
Other Building Schedulers in the Stake have no problems, nor do I (Stake Executive Secretary), after assigning myself as a "Building Scheduler" in each building.

I deleted his name from the "Building Scheduler" list, and re-added it, to no avail.

That is the correct behavior. Building schedulers do not have access to the "Locations & Rooms" tab (see Management of location information in the Calendar help system). That function is reserved for stake administrators.

If other building schedulers are seeing the "Locations & Rooms" tab, then it is not because they are building schedulers, but rather because they are stake administrators. That means that they are either a default stake administrator by virtue of a standard calling they have (see Administrator role in Help for the complete list), or because a default stake administrator has manually added them as a stake administrator. In either case, they will appear by name in the "Administrators" tab for the stake unit.

That is the only part of your post that seems to describe a malfunction in the system. When a building scheduler clicks on the down arrow next to a building for which he is designated as a building scheduler, he should see an "Add Reservation" link, which should take him to the Reservations tab. He should not be seeing "Edit Location", and that link should certainly not take him to the Edit Calendar" page. (BTW, do you really mean "Calendars tab" when you say "Edit Calendar" page?)
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.
