In the Next Revision Unit Web Sites Wish List
thread of this forum, the idea was brought up of having multiple layers for the unit calendar, like Calendar Creator and Google Calendars have. Being able to turn different layers on or off would make it possible, for members to display as much or as little as they want when maintaining or using their unit calendar. I think this is a great idea and it got me thinking about what I would like to see as part of the design if such a capability were to be implemented in the future.
I would like to see some built-in layers along with the ability for an administrator to create custom layers.
Built-in layers could include:
- Churchwide Events
- Stake Events
- Ward Events
- Scheduled Lessons (this layer could automatically be populated by what has been entered by an administrator in the Lesson Schedules part of the site)
When exporting a calendar, only events in layers currently being displayed should be exported.
Perhaps, in addition to being in a layer, an event could also be assigned 1 or more categories to allow further filtering within layers. (for example, my youngest child is 12, so I might want to exclude events that have a category of Cub Scouts or Primary from my personal calendar)
