What I would like- Integration with the calendar.
The two could be very complimentary, considering the calendar has the current limitations of no text formatting for long entries, no hyperlink ability, no pictures, and no attachments, while the newsletter has all of these abilities. For example:
- A calendar item for a ward father and sons, girls camp or scouting event can "link" or otherwise be tied to the newsletter tool for the full details. The newsletter article can have the parental permission slip, packing list, schedule of events, picture of the really cool campsite, and the automobile map so dad doesn't get lost.
- A calendar item for the stake canning service project assignment. The newsletter can have the separate ward patron assignments, the time schedule, the lds.maps link to the cannery, and the patron information and dress code.
- And, the calendar has the ability to send out reminders or notices via email, somewhat overcoming the limitation of the newsletter's ability to send any emails... we just need them somehow linked together.
(I know the article referencing "the tolerable waiting time for information retrieval" may not fully apply here...but it is interesting how we DON'T have much patience over two seconds for our information anymore)
