Local Unit Directory does not display the ward name for a household

Postby basharon » Thu Nov 29, 2012 11:05 am

As the Stake Indexing Director I use the "old" stake/ward directory to determine the name of the ward an individual is in when they register for indexing. I send them an email welcoming the new registrant to indexing and also cc the Ward Indexing Administrator using the ward name from the directory. The new Local Unit Directory does not include the ward name of an household. At least, I cannot determine how to find the ward name if it is there.

This feature has been discussed in other threads. In this thread there are some work-arounds discussed. In this post a church employee stated the ability to search for a stake member and see what ward they are in is coming in a future release of the Directory.

This feature is coming. See the thread Stake Information - Directory Search?.

Ward name with member listing

Postby basharon » Tue Jan 08, 2013 2:26 pm

There have been several messages going back quite some time regarding the need for the ward name to appear with the individual member information but no action has been taken. I use the directory almost every week and need to know what ward a member is in. Please, someone, make this a priority and get someone involved who can make the change needed. The 'old' directory had the ward name. As far as using the map is concerned, our wards here in Utah county are close together and it's difficult to tell from them what ward a person is in.

basharon, Thanks for the feedback. This feature has been coded into the 3.0 release. When you're viewing the stake and search for a member, the member's ward appears under their name. 3.0 will be released soon. [For reference, LUD-1402 is the JIRA item associated with this request.]
