Calendar Participation

Postby larsynielsonjr » Wed Jul 27, 2011 7:59 am

We would be happy to provide input from the perspective of stake leadership. There have been some significant omissions in the new website as compared to the old website.

I'm in the Mesa AZ Desert Ridge Stake

I am a stake clerk and stake technology specialist in Salt Lake City and I am interested in being a beta tester for Calendar 2.0.

I am very interested

Postby SalernoCL » Wed Jul 27, 2011 10:03 am

I am the first counselor in a stake with 11 units in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I am very interested (together with the Executive Secretary) because we have extenseively been using the current calendar and see room for improvement, thus we want to collaborate as much as possible.

jdcr256 wrote:The Local Unit Calendar development team is in the final stretches of development for Calendar 2.0. This is an exciting release for us that should improve usability throughout the application.

In order to ensure a smooth transition when we release the new calendar, we are inviting the members of LDSTech to help us work out the kinks before the official release. In the next several weeks we hope to release the new application into a type of sandbox environment where you can get access to try it out.

Our hope is that those of you who are admin users in your units will take the time to kick the tires for us. As an incentive, we hope to provide those assisting us with a more direct line of communication to the development team - a chance to ensure your gripes are heard by us... ;)


The purpose of this post today is to gauge the interest in participating in such a program. Please respond to let us know if you are interested.

Obviously, those who are default admins in their stake/district or ward/branch will be most helpful. We may implement a mechanism whereby we can grant admin rights to specific users who want to contribute.

We hope to get a variety of users from multiple time zones. And if you live or work in (or regularly travel to) a different time zone than that of your local ward house, we especially need your help.

Finally, if you are an out-of-unit leader (e.g. Bishopric member or clerk in a singles ward, etc.), your input is also valuable.

The sandbox environment we hope to implement will probably contain an import of data from the production version of the Local Unit Calendar, but any new data entered during this testing phase will not be preserved when the 2.0 calendar goes live.

If you are interested, please respond and indicate your calling (or just whether you have a stake/ward admin calling or not) and the general area you live in. Your feedback here will help us decide if and how to implement this test program, so tell your friends.

Calendar 2.0 beta testing

Postby jficklin » Wed Jul 27, 2011 11:07 am

I am interested in participating. I am the tech clerk in the Las Cruces New Mexico Stake and do all training of ward web admins, schedulers, etc. We currently schedule using the classic calendar. We have a number of non-building resources that are not tied to a specific building (ie. stake dance equipment, video projectors, etc.) which we schedule on the classic calendar and we are very interested to see if the new calendar can handle that. Thank you for the opportunity to participate.

The original announcement said that "any new data entered during this testing phase will not be preserved when the 2.0 calendar goes live."
