I would also appreciate the lesson manuals being made available, in the drop down menu, by November if possible.

If you look at Lessons now -- you will see a banner saying "The Lesson Schedules function on LDS.org will be discontinued effective December 31, 2016. Please use other means to manage lesson schedules, such as printed lists, email, or other online programs. Guidelines for using online resources in Church callings may be found at internet.lds.org." We are going to pilot using the Ward Calendar -- setting up a new calendar that people can subscribe to

Would be interested in how you set up a lesson calendar. Would it have links to the lesson like the
lesson schedule did?

I see that everyone here is talking about updating lesson schedules, yet when I go to the lesson schedules on lds.org it says that the tool is being discontinued. I appears that the responsibility for lesson schedules has been shifted to another department in the church, but does anyone know if they will continue the lesson schedule tool or not? I assume the church will continue the tool but wonder if anyone might know for sure.

This topic started back early last month. The information that the Lesson Schedules tool was being discontinued only came out last week, so posts prior to that were understandably talking about continuing to use the existing tool. More recent posts have responded to the news of the discontinuation.

No, the responsibility is not being shifted to another department. The Lesson Schedules tool is simply being discontinued.

Unfortunately no! But Newsletter do.
Create a new topic (e.s. QA Lessons, etcetera) then write Date, Topic (with link to the lesson) and Teacher (with link to mail address, if you wish).
You can divide Lesson's schedule per month or per year, as you prefer.
Maybe a main topic "Lessons" and sub-topic per auxiliary?
Not sure because I can't test it.

Where would I find the links for the lessons all in one place?

You can get to all the manuals from here:

That is the link for the manuals. If I put in a newsletter by auxiliary there is place for
"attachment" for I can't figure out how to get a blue link to actual lessons?
Seems as if creating a lesson calendar too much work for each auxiliary.
Thoughts on how to accomplish putting lesson schedules WITH link at same
time?
