Quoting John M. Shaw:
Seriously looking forward to Information on the Media App.... extremely disappointed.


We apologize for the change of topic. The team is looking at some options for this application. The functionality is still coming, we should find out more in the near future.

Please watch for a very exciting announcement of the future of LDS Tools, I think many will be surprised to hear it.

I too am sad by the change from Gospel Media to LDSTools. Is the Gospel Media information going to be rescheduled for another day or will the information be disseminated via some other means?

What was the great announcement - I was so excited about the Gospel Media presentation I took the day off to join you in Riverton in person, however, since I wasn't really interested in rehashing stuff I've seen before I chose to take my wife out instead.

I enjoyed presenting on LDS Tools yesterday and hope that others found it useful. Feel free to post questions about LDS Tools here and I will respond to them. Thanks!

Justin,

The presentation is very 'leader' centric - new stuff seems to be focused on LCR/Tools data. What about the regular member? (they can see their ios).

Big things still needed:
Integrate with Lessons --> notifications of lesson coming up
Push Notification for emergency communication or just general ward communication
Push out the sacrament program
Ward Mission Plan, Emergency Plan, any other communication or information that all members should have.

Ability to use Contacts as phone contacts
Integration with mobile device calendar

anything we could expect coming out

John,

Thanks for your feedback, these are all things that have been discussed and are being considered but no specific timeline at this point. We are also working to update the user interface based on new internal guidelines as well as platform standards. Those improvements will benefit all LDS Tools users.

Thanks!
