Ward leadership enters TFOT lessons as "event" for the fourth Sundays, specifying in the title of the event that it is a TFOT lesson, with the lesson talk reference, like this:[INDENT]"Teachings for our Time lesson for RS and Priesthood: Found at (give talk reference.)"
[/INDENT]Making sure to indicate it will replace only the HP, EQ and RS lessons on that fourth Sunday when creating it.
Benefit: The three organizations, HP, EQ and RS, won't have to each receive a paper list of the schedules from the ward leaders, and then enter each lesson separately into their own individual lesson schedules. A ward leader enters each months lesson once as an event, and it will "appear" on the correct week on all three calendars. Other lessons (primary, YM & YW) for that week will be unaffected.
- Of course, an event cannot have an instructors name associated with it, so the TFOT lesson would not show any instructor.
- Organization leaders couldn't "overwrite" (move or re-schedule) it, as only an admin calling could change events. (In some wards, this might be perceived more as a benefit!)
- If the organization has already made their schedule, doing this would overwrite whatever lesson they have input for each fourth week.
Any other ideas about this process?
For future versions, I hope a TFOT's schedule, input by ward leadership, and that can be applied to multiple class schedules is adopted, and with link ability!
