Minor UI tweak request (Create Calendar)

#1

Post by russellhltn »

One thing about the new calendar that's been annoying me:

When creating a new calendar, shouldn't the positions of "Who can see this calendar" and "This calendar is for" be reversed? Most people (or at least myself) fill out forms from the top down. It doesn't make sense to set "Who can see" when you haven't even selected if this is a ward or stake calendar.

If found it a problem in training.

I'll pass this on to the calendar team for consideration in an upcoming release. Any other suggestions for improving the calendar?

Another UI issue I have encountered when training is in New Event or Edit Event. Moving the "Schedule entire location" after the "Rooms and equipment at this location" listbox demotes the "Schedule entire location" importance and the temptation to use that option when multiple rooms should be selected. The "Schedule entire location" option should be infrequently used for meetinghouses, in my experience.

I see with the 2.0.5 release, it's now showing "Entire Unit" instead of naming the unit. Less confusing then what it was, (in that it allows a top-down process) but possibility confusing for people who might not be clear on what a "unit" is. I'm guessing it was the quickest fix without risking breaking something.

This hasn't changed in this release. If you select the ward radio button, this will read "Entire Ward", and if you select the stake radio button, it will read "Entire Unit". It should read "Entire Stake", but there is a small bug that has never been addressed to switch dynamically from "Entire Stake" to "Entire District", so we've just left it as "Unit" until that bug makes it up the priority list.

I do agree that the two sections should probably swap locations, but again, that will have to make its way up the priority list. At least it's easy to slip in somewhere...

I added this to the bug/issue tracking tool for consideration by the calendar team. I agree with the suggestion. Thanks,

Tom
