Family Profile Editing

Postby johnffollett » Mon Feb 06, 2012 12:03 pm

  • Who can edit the Family Profile? I seem to remember reading that only a parent could do so but can't find the reference now.
  • Is there a minimum age for Family Profile editors?
  • If neither of the previous two questions are true, how does a parent control the profile?

I have not been able to find a definitive answer. Before the directory help migrated to the wiki there was information there that was more detailed than what is now found in the directory help. I cannot confirm this but I believe any adult household member can edit the household profile and any household member's profile. The information that can currently be edited is e-mail address, telephone number, and photo. Any household adult can also change the option to show/not show editable data in the directory as well as to opt-in/opt-out for the household.

Any adult can edit household profiles. I am not certain but I believe an adult is anyone 18 or over.

Have you tried finding your answer on the LDS.org Help Center page or the LDSTech wiki?

In addition to the parents, (assuming the child is grouped as part of your household) the following callings can edit the profiles:

◦ Bishop
◦ Acting ward leader
◦ Bishopric first counselor
◦ Bishopric second counselor
◦ Ward executive secretary
◦ Ward clerk
◦ Ward assistant clerk
◦ Ward assistant clerk - finance
◦ Ward assistant clerk - membership

The Ward website administrator CANNOT edit the profiles unless they've also been listed as one of the above callings.
