I'm not sure what you mean by "link". At best, you can push a single event to the calendar. I don't think any kind on ongoing connection is possible (at least, not at this time).

I mean link as in I cannot plan an event in the youth planner and have it appear on the ward calendar. The youth planning application is not communicating with the ward calendar to show the activities planned through the youth calendar at youth.lds.org.

Correct. It does not. Maybe someday that feature will be added.

There is a button for each activity on the youth calendar that can place that activity on the ward/stake calendar, so it saves you from manually entering it. See the screen shot attached to this post for an example of that button.

Wow. I am amazed that the Church has created two completely independent calendaring systems with no interface between them.

Which ward calendar? Does that magic button let you choose which calendar?

We have finally trained the parents of our youth to diligently watch the ward calendar. And none of the youth activities are getting there, because they have a calendar of their own.

If you look further up this thread, I asked the same thing because if they put something n this Youth calendar, it doesn't give them a resource in the building and does not take the resource out f the calendaring system. I think folks will be very confused.

I've not used it, so I'm not sure. If you have edit access to more than one calendar, I assume it asks.
