Churchwide Events Calendar Entry

Postby casper684 » Thu Dec 03, 2020 1:01 pm

Wondering who inputs churchwide events? Is it done by Salt Lake or does each Stake get a list and input?
Received a list of upcoming 2021 churchwide events but don't appear to be on the 2021 calendar yet.
Tried looking at an entry for 2020 and unable to tell.
Example: 12-06-20 Worldwide Christmas Devotional does not show :Event Owned By

Done by SL.

Each stake/ward would input their own on their own calendar if they want to advertise a local viewing.

Thank you. I always thought Salt Lake made the entries on the Churchwide calendar. Why does the event
not show who owns it? That was why I thought it was Salt Lake doing input.

Just the way the system works. Either it wasn't thought of, or thought not to be important given the calendar layer it appears on.

In the past when we developed the Stake yearly calendar all the Church Wide Events were posted in the calendar on the church website and on Tools calendar. For 2021 there are no Church Wide Events posted and in Tool the 2021 Calendar is not even available. Is there are reason for such? If/when can we expect to see Church Wide calendar posted and 2021 calendar available in Tools?
The following statement is a cut from the churches recent announcement of 2021 Church Wide Events:An event article for each of the following events will be published on Events.ChurchofJesusChrist.org in English, with links to language versions included in each article. Details will be added as the date of an event gets closer. Events will also appear in members’ ward and stake calendars at Calendar.ChurchofJesusChrist.org and in the Member Tools app."

The Priesthood and Family Department at the Church inputs these and we are still waiting.

The 2021 Calendar is available in Member Tools, but since the Church has not yet added any Church Wide Events, you will not see any of them. Member Tools has a setting that will let you look one year ahead, so most of our stake calendar for next year is already available there.

If you do not change the Tools default setting, you see three months ahead, which means January and February are just now appearing.

The calendar in Member Tools isn't cooperating for me. Refresh fails. "Calendars to display" shows "None available". Yet I see calendars on the church webpage.
