Viewing calendars by the stake presidency

Postby dec191953 » Tue Jan 12, 2021 3:30 pm

I am the stake executive secretary and have been for three years. I am having difficulty with stake calendars that are private. The stake presidency is listed as viewers but they cant see the calendar on their devices or laptops. I've tried everything.
Any help?

Make sure they're logging in with the right account. The MRN on their account must match the MRN of the person holding the position that's been granted viewer rights.

The other issue is that they may have to go into "Choose Calendars" and enable those calendars to be viewed on the main page. Then they can select them for view.

When you say "on their devices or laptops" are you referring to the Calendar tool at the Church website, and the Member Tools app for either Android or iOS? It's possible to subscribe to calendars so they show in other calendar programs, like Google Calendar – however, these type of calendar subscriptions don't update automatically – so if that's what they're using to view the calendar, they'll need to go to the settings in the Calendar tool at the Church website to generate a new subscription URL.

I would be careful with Private calendars.

I was released from the stake presidency, and I can still see events on the Church Calendar. Though they are shown as "Private Event," I can see the event details, including calendar name, room, and time.

Furthermore, when I sync my Church calendar with my Google Calendar, I can see all the meeting details, like any other event, including the Event Name.

This was not our intention when we set up that particular private calendar and was honestly a little disheartening to find that all the events over the last (who knows how many years) that we thought were private, actually were not.."

I wonder if you were added to the calendar "by name" or "by calling".
