Scheduling one event (Stake Conference) in three buildings

Postby watchmen » Wed Dec 07, 2011 9:13 am

Dear Brethren,
Is there now or will there be soon any way to schedule 3 buildings for a single event? We are having stake conference and, so far, we have to have three separate events scheduled and visible on the stake calendar in order to reserve (block out) the 3 buildings that will be used for Stake Conference. Thanks for your consideration and follow through.
Also, Brother Terry Bellows, the Stake Audio-Visual Specialist for the Mesa North Stake is presently unable to sign in to an upcoming webcast. Being new to this procedure, I am not sure how to help him in time to prepare for this weekend's stake conference.
Thanks for you help.

Currently, an event can only be at one location. The technique I use for such events is to put an event on the main stake events calendar, reserving the stake center. Then on a "resource only" calendar (the one I use for booking rooms and equipment that are not associated with a public event) I would add events to book the other two buildings.

You may want to post details on that problem in a more appropriate forum (such as Building-to-Building Communications).
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.

This is on our backlog of new features to add but has not bee scheduled yet. This and adding events to multiple calendars are among the top requested features. We'll get it done...just not sure when.
