Building Admins still called schedulers

From Is it a Restriction or an Event?

They're still called "Building Schedulers" in the locations screen.

(This this the first I've heard of the name change - and I'm all for it.)

You're certainly correct that the term "Building Admin" has never appeared in any documentation or in the application, so I don't know of any context where it would be true that "Building schedulers [were] renamed to building admins" -- in 2009 or any other time.

I think the term "Building Scheduler" has created even more confusion than the term "Reservations" (which is now "Restrictions"). So I'm all for something different.

I worry a bit that the term "Building Admin" implies more than they can actually do. For example, they still can't add or remove rooms from the building, nor can they assign units to it, nor can they assign other Building Admins, nor can they change the name or make it available for scheduling. But I can't think of a better term that fits their capabilities at this point.

So, I'm not the only one that missed that. :)

As much as I'd like to get away from the root word "schedule", the truth is that's the area where all their power lie. If we're suggesting alternatives, there is "coordinator" and my pick "supervisor". Hopefully no one would expect a "Building Scheduling Supervisor" (Or perhaps "Building Supervisor") to be hands-on any more than a VT Supervisor is. It also implies there are people above (admin) and below (the ones being supervised).

But I'd welcome any change from old phraseology to emphasis that there's a new paradigm in town.

You know I have always called them Building Schedulers

We should be consistent everywhere though.

I think it'd make a lot of sense for Building Schedulers to be given these permissions. Is it only a stake presidency member or stake clerk who can do that, currently?

If these permissions could be added for Building Schedulers, I like the term "Building Admin."

Only stake calendar administrators, which include the stake presidency and stake clerks.

Does this include the Stake Executive Secretary. Maybe we have it wrong, but in our stake I have the calendar assignment. It sort of goes along with scheduling the stake presidency.

Yes, default stake calendar administrators include the stake executive secretary. I don't think any of the previous mentions of calendar administrators were intended to be a comprehensive list. A full list is found in the help system under Rights and Roles.

Thanks, I see where I am going wrong....the difference between editor and administrator.

Thanks!
