Non-presidency members scheduling directly on the Stake calendar

Postby whitetjw » Tue Feb 12, 2019 9:58 am

Our local leaders keep saying that all members of the stake can schedule a ward building directly on the Stake Calendar by logging into their account on lds.org and then clicking on the day needed and inputting the info. This is even stated in the announcement section of our ward's Sacrament meeting program bulletin. I have consistently found this to be incorrect: Only members who are currently serving in presidencies can schedule on the calendar. Our ward has become the agent ward of our building at the turn of the New Year. But leaders won't call a building scheduler because of this persistent idea. I constantly run into this problem as I'm supposed to schedule all the Cub Scout Pack mtgs. and activities each year. I have to find a leader who is willing to listen and will do it for me. Is there a policy regarding this? Is it true that all stake members, regardless of calling, should be able to schedule directly on the Stake calendar? And if so, how do we get the glitch resolved that is keeping those of us non-presidency members from being able to do so? (I am and always have been a member in good standing, in case that was a question on your mind.) Could I get official clarification on this?

They are the default admins. They can add others as editors to the calendar.

No policy, but there is a help file that describes how the calendar works.

NO!

I'm not sure as you'd get one here, but again, I'd refer to the help file that describes how it works.

OK thanks for the help. I found the information on the help file link regarding this. I'm just going to request they remove that announcement from the Sacrament Bulletin since it's incorrect but numerous leaders are passing this idea around.

It's not unusual for a leader to think that because they can do it, anyone can. They don't realize that their calling is tied to the LDS Account and there are rights that automatically go with their calling.

But I have to say, I've not seen it this bad where they think any member can place something on the calendar. I'd think they'd view that with some concern. Any Calendar Editor, yes, but not any member.
