Revising stake leadership directory

Postby fortsill1954 » Thu Sep 27, 2012 1:15 pm

I am new to stake web site admin. I cannot access a screen that will permit revisions in the stake leadership listings. Clicking on "leadership directory" from the admin page just takes me to the online membership directories without option to revise. Do stake leadership listings port ONLY from the existing MLS calling data, or can I update names and callings manually at the stake web site admin level? If the latter, how do I do that?

Assuming you are talking about the new directory and not the old classic directory, the answer is "yes".

If you're talking about the old classic, then I'd recommend turning off the directory so that it points to the new one.

Thank you for the reply. Yes, we do have the old classic directory turned off. Only the new one is visible. And thus, you are essentially saying then that to change the stake leadership listings, one must first make those changes in MLS, and the changes will then subsequently appear in the online stake directory. Correct? Thank you very much for the assistance, and the patience.

That's the theory. There have been problems in the past, so it may be out of sync. To fix that, follow Correcting duplicate or missing callings. But you'll have to wait for MLS 3.5 to come out first.

But yes, the Stake MLS (for stake callings) and Ward MLS (for ward callings) is the gateway for making changes to the leadership roster.
