Welcome! This forum has a treasure trove of great info – Scouters helping Scouters! Just a heads up, though - all content, information, and opinions shared on this forum are those of the author, not the BSA.
Is there a way to add the option when adding something to a pack or troop calendar in Scoutbook to the event type of “District Event”, “Council Event” or “National Event” ? If such an option does not exist, can that get added?
The reasoning for this is that currently when adding district/council/national events to the calendar admin are forced to just use the event type of “other” which uses the same color on the calendar as pack events so these other events blend in and look like pack planned events which can be confusing.
Bill I understand that, but that is not what I am asking for. I do not want to link to district, council or national website calendar. I want an option when entering something into my units website that designates it as a district, council, or national event and then show it in a different color on the calendar than a pack event.
Yikes! Hopefully they will exist on their own respective calendar layers that can be hidden or unhidden by the units? It can already be challenging when there are multiple events on the same day. If units get inundated with additional events in the calendar that they can’t manage/hide, it’s going to drive them away from using the calendar at all.
I wish there at least a way to change the color of those district and council events so things just don’t bleed together. My unit wants all of the events on the calendar, I know because I was tasked with adding everything known between now and May 2023; but there are a lot.
