That's because "building scheduler" is not a calling that is entered in MLS (it's certainly not a standard calling); it's simply an assignment that is made using the Calendar's administration tools.

So for your case you have the choice of adding the building scheduler by name as an editor of that calendar, or you can give that person the calling of stake building specialist and associate that calling with that calendar.

Note that according to the help file, the "Stake building specialist" is already a default stake admin.

Just to bring this back to the original purpose of this thread. The standard calling, "Stake Seminary Supervisor" does not appear when trying to add viewers/editors by calling.

Yes, that's true. It can't possibly be changed until a new version of the Calendar is deployed, and no new version of the Calendar has been deployed since you began this discussion. So you'll just have to continue to be patient. Adding a calendar editor by name is a simple enough workaround until that fix is eventually deployed.

In my stake MLS, these standard callings exist in the Facilities group:
Stake Building Specialist
Stake Physical Facilities Representative
Stake Recreation Camp Service Missionary
Stake Scheduler--Building 1
Stake Scheduler--Building 2
Stake Scheduler--Building 3
Stake Scheduler--Building 4
Stake Scheduler--Building 5
Unit Security Specialist

In the Calendar on lds.org:
Stake Building Specialist
Stake Recreation Camp Service Missionary

I am trying to add "Den Leaders" and our "Cub Scout Committee Chairmen" to a calendar by their calling; however, those callings do not appear in the add editors by calling option.
Any ideas on how to add them?

Are you adding them to a stake calendar? From what I remember, ward callings can't be added as editors to a stake calendar – they'd have to be added by name instead of by calling.

When I tried to add these callings yesterday they wouldn't come up as options. But today when I tried they showed up.

I'm having the same issue at the Ward level. The "Scheduler--Building 1" 2, 3, etc. won't show up in the Viewers/Editors by calling list for any Ward Calendar even though they are standard callings in the Facilities group per Leader & Clerk Resources on lds.org. How is it possible that a Building Scheduler ("Scheduler--Building") wouldn't have Calendar roles? Obviously, adding editors by calling is preferential to adding people by name. How do we add or make callings available to the Viewers/Editors list :?: And if it can't be done at the Stake or Ward level, to whom do we formally make this request? Thanks!

The Building Schedulers in our area are the ones who arrange for members to clean the meetinghouse each week. They have nothing at all to do with the calendar system.
