I have very broad access/privileges to our calendar, and I could not see it. When I tried to over-book that event, I was prevented. I double checked that all calendars I had access to were visible (they were) yet I could not see any event scheduled for that day.
My guess would be that she scheduled the event before the restrictions where put in place. IIRC, restrictions will go overtop of "conflicting" events with no error messages. If you'd switch your calendar on lds.org to view "locations", then, as a building scheduler for that building, you'd be able to see the event. As a building scheduler, you'd then be able to modify it (assuming it was taking place in "your" building.) Note that location calendars do not appear anywhere outside of lds.org. So the LDS Tools app is not usable for that purpose.
Note, that expect for a handful of people at the stake level, no one can see all the event calendars in the stake. If this is a multi-stake building, it goes down hill rapidly. You have to use the location calendar.

Only the person who is set up in the calendar system as a building scheduler can place restrictions. Everyone else does events.
The rights to the calendars are set up by each unit, but generally stake calendars can only be access by those holding stake callings and ward calendars can only be accessed by those holding ward callings. So there is already a hierarchy by calling in place.
