unnecessary bureaucracy

Discussions about the Calendar Tool at lds.org. Questions about the calendar on the classic site should be posted in the LUWS forum.

Having this person at the ward level makes great sense -- everyone in the ward will know them, and everything they do can appear on a ward calendar.
This sounds like something a ward website administrator could also be assigned to do. The website administrator is an admin by default on all the LDS.org tools.

You could use the Website Administrator however be aware that by default they also have admin rights to the Directory, Lesson Schedules, Maps, and News Letter which maybe more than you would want them to do.

In our ward we just have one of the clerks take care of the duties Bro Brown described as the "Calendar Coordinator".

That's an option. It varies by ward; in our stake we have ward executive secretaries, ward clerks, assistant clerks, and website administrators filling this role, depending on the bishop's preference.
