We may add some images to the help but the last help version had way too many. Images become a maintenance problem as things change and with the calendar in 11 languages.

To block the entire stake, you can either create a real event that blocks everyone, or create a restriction that blocks everyone except stake calendar events. Your stake name should be listed in "restrict event scheduling to" pulldown. I see the order list is random and should be alpha.

In the Locations Details reports, is there an order to the way the events are shown? I can’t seem to find rhyme or reason to it.

Yes, they do look pretty random, probably in ID order, order of creation. I'll see if they can be sorted by date. The purpose of these reports are to help you find events to delete when you are getting deleting events when a ward moves out of a location, moving an event when you don't want to schedule a room anymore, etc. BTW, the number of events in that badge number doesn't count a repeating event as 1, each instance is in the count.

Another way to quickly jump months is just swipe if you have a smart screen.

Also these lists only include future events.

Yes, too many stakes created custom locations that are duplicates of the facilities building calendars and that causes great confusion when wards move, stake split, callings change, etc. because things don't happen automatically for those custom locations that are not tied to a building. Using those lists, one can pretty quickly migrate all their future events to the real building calendars and delete the custom location. The steps are all outlined in https://www.lds.org/help/support/calend ... s?lang=eng

Can you update locations of previous events (like back to the beginning of the year)? We keep track at the end of the year on how many “private/non-Church” events in each of our buildings. Or, do I need to count them before I make changes to my Custom building?

Turning calendar viewing on/off?

Postby mprusse » Sat Mar 02, 2019 9:24 pm

Am I missing the way to turn on/off viewing of calendars as there used to be? Often times I want to see just certain calendars in the main view and you could easily turn on/off stake or ward calendars all at once. Now it appears I have to do that one at a time which is extremely inconvenient.
