I've got no problem if a stake want to run their operation this way, but the thread did start with the idea of updating the documentation. As such, I wouldn't be comfortable assigning roles beyond what's in the Handbook or defined by the software.
I think what I stated is in line with the Handbook and the software. If not please let me know where I may have gone wrong.
I am not aware of any place in the Handbook that makes the stake clerks responsible for building scheduling and that the executive secretary should not be involved at all. I think russellhltn is merely suggesting that, since there is no such restriction in the Handbook, there should not be a restriction in the help information. There is nothing saying the clerks can't do it, but there is nothing requiring it, either.
As a matter of interest, I have never lived anywhere that the clerks had anything to do with the calendar. Everywhere I have lived, the executive secretary was the responsible person.
I think either way might work just fine. The Handbook simply says that the bishop usually assigns "another person". It does not specify who should be assigned.
