This does not affect repeating events, apparently. Whether 'This location can be scheduled by Wards and Stakes' is checked or not, repeating events can still be edited. Or at least the edit window comes up; I haven't tried to save any changes after that.

We do not have this option checked nor do we want to. We have 4 wards plus the stake in the building. It needs a scheduler in control and we do not want wards reserving the building without going through the scheduler.

The system is not designed for "the old way". There is no one person who can place things on the calendars of 4 different wards no matter how you play with the rights.

In our stake, we have 3 wards in one building with no building scheduler at all. In another we have 3 wards, a branch and a the stake. That one does have a "building scheduler" but he doesn't schedule all the wards. It works fine. Attempts to subvert the restriction process is likely to result in misery as there's a number of gotchas.

Remember, by in large, the people with rights to schedule events are your ward, quorum and auxiliary leaders. If can't trust them, why do you have them as leaders?

And you are able to edit events where the building was reserved? How did you get it to work like that?

Currently we have building schedulers, but we may need to rethink how we do things if we aren't able to get the calendar to work without that box checked.

We also detected a problem involving repeating events. If you have a repeating event associated with a building/room, if you try to update that event for the entire series, it just returns you to the create screen and your update hasn't been saved. You can make the change for individual days in the repeating event.


I have found a work around for this problem:
1. Make your updates
2. Change your "End Date"
3. Click to save your updates for the Entire series or All Following Events.
3. Click yes when warned about overwriting events
4. Click create event to save
I have used this many times, I have even gone back to the original date if I have needed to update the same event more than once. As long as you change the End Date the calendar will let you save it.

Any update on when we might see a fix for this? We are having the same problem where we do not open the buildings for general scheduling and only want our building schedulers to be able to assign locations. However, once they enter an event with a building selected, they cannot go back and edit that event unless it happened to be a repeating event. Enabling distributed scheduling is not an option since our stake presidency does not want it done that way. It seems like a building scheduler should be able to edit the event regardless of whether scheduling is enabled for wards and stakes. They have edit rights to the calendar that the event is on and they are a building scheduler, so it seems like there shouldn't be anything keeping them from editing the event.

That's hard to say. It's a small development team that bounces between products using the priorities set by the Brethren. They just pushed out a update to the calendar and fixed the bugs that one caused.

Got feedback from the developers - they acknowledge there's a bug. But there's some other issues at play, so we'll have to wait and see what's decided.

Thanks for checking with them and for the feedback. I will let our schedulers know the status.
