Discussions about the Calendar Tool at lds.org. Questions about the calendar on the classic site should be posted in the LUWS forum.
I would like to participate in Calendar 2.0. I am our Ward Administrator. Henderson, Nv.

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.
