"Website Administrator" is a standard ward calling. "Stake Website Administrator" is a standard stake calling. I have administrative Calendar access with the stake calling to all of the stake calendars.

I suspect the ward-level calling would give administrative access to all of the ward calendars.

It used to grant additional access to some of the other tools. For example, I seem to remember it allowed some settings in the directory (privacy rights?). However, later changes took away some of those rights, so I'm not sure what they have now.

Likewise, they used to have admin access to Newsletter and Lesson Schedules, but those tools were retired.
Have you searched the Help Center? Try doing a Google search and adding "site:churchofjesuschrist.org/help" to the search criteria.

Website Administrators had almost complete administrative control over the classic (old) Local Unit Web Site. At the old site, they had a lot of influence over the directory and how it displayed information. No longer.

Calendar. I think that is all. As you mentioned, Newsletter and Lesson Schedules were retired, although I do not remember if I had access to them because I was a website administrator.
