"Show on Map" link missing

Postby jdlessley » Sun Apr 01, 2012 5:09 pm

The directory "Sow on Map" link is not available for regular membership rights, nothing displayed, except for those with administrators rights. I was checking another directory issue with my wife when she noted she did not have the "Show on Map" link, text, or icon for any household except our own household. I as an administrator have the link. I was expecting the visibility option for some of the households to be private but they all were set to "Stake".

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

The Show on Map link is not available to ward or stake administrators so it might just be for bishoprics/stake presidencies/clerks. I am both administrator for my ward/stake and can only see the show on map link for my own household. I can go the maps function and see individual households and get directions from there. I used to be able to do this from the directory site and miss it, hopefully it will be restored in future updates.

The map link should follow whatever privacy level has been set. However, it seems to be acting as though the 'Private - Leadership Only' option is set, even when it is actually set to one of the other two options. I'm not sure why, as it was functioning correctly in our test environment prior to the bug-fix release we did a couple weeks ago.

I've added this to the list of things to be checked for our next release.

The show on map link is now back on the directory and it appears to be working correctly. Thanks
