I need to do the following in Team Calendars and cannot figure out how to do them:
Any info will be very helpful. Thanks.
The "Remove" function removes the calendar like if it was a "Delete" button. About not being able to edit the calendar's name, unfortunately it's the behavior of the Team Calendar. You can only edit the title and some other functions if you have created the calendar, even if you are the Administrator.
Thanks for the answers Pietro.
I'm curious why "remove" was used instead of "delete" - they mean very different things to me and the different language is confusing.
Also, why can Admins edit all items in Jira and Confluence but not edit calendar names? This is not consistent with the behavior of other Atlassian apps.
"I'm curious why "remove" was used instead of "delete" - they mean very different things to me and the different language is confusing."
We have two features here:
1. Remove - "Remove this from my mycalendars list"
2. Delete - Permantly delete this calendar
At first we had two options in the drop-down menu "Remove" and "Delete". Everyone found this confusing.So we changed it to say "Remove" and from there you get a dialog asking you do you want to delete it or just remove it from your list.... sounds like it was still confusing for you... any suggestions let me know
I think having "remove" actually be "remove" or "delete" is quite confusing. If I am looking to delete a calendar I would not think to click on remove. I think your original approach was less confusing, especially if the two choices are next to each other. It's obvious that remove does not delete the calendar if there is also a delete choice in the menu. When you mention that "everyone found this confusing" I have a feeling that "everyone" would include people who's primary language is not english. To a native speaker the difference between these words is very clear, but I can see how it could confuse others.
Also, why can't an admin edit the name of an existing calendar? This is not how Jira or Confluence works, so it makes it frustrating to have this restriction in Team Calendars.
