Ward leaders

Postby ChristianStromberg » Tue Nov 13, 2012 4:47 am

Hello,
All our YM and RS leaders are placed correctly in MLS but in lds.org directory they show up in Young Men (president and one councelor) and Young Men presidency (one councelor). Why do they show up i different groups? The same for the Relief Society precidency.
Regards
Christian

As long as your ward clerk gave these people the correct calling (i.e., he choose one from the list and didn't type it in) in MLS this should show up in the same group in Directory. Please check with your ward clerk to see if everything's correct. Thanks.

Verify that the calling is recorded as a standard position and not a custom position.

The recent MLS 3.5 upgrade may have caused some problems. I didn't do the upgrade in our ward, but I understand there were problems with some callings getting messed up that had to be cleaned up after the upgrade. Check with your ward clerk. Make sure he's aware of the issue. Hopefully it's a quick fix.

I'm sure you meant to write MLS 3.5 rather than 4.5, correct?

We're beta testing 4.5 in our ward ;)

Looks like you caught a typo in my post. I'll go fix it.

Yes, the positions are standard positions and yes it appeared after the latest upgrade to 3.5

The problem is a data inconsistency in CDOL caused by CDOL supporting the new 3.5 data structure, but MLS still being on 3.4.3 :(. We have a script that cleans this up. It should be in production today or tomorrow. Then I can run it for your ward and make sure that it fixes things on lds.org directory

I have run this and from what I can see it looks good. Let me know if you see anything.

I am having the same problem for our ward, after upgrading to 3.5 any changes made in MLS to ward leadership positions are not being updated on the lds.org website.
