callings appear twice on LDS.Org

Postby rich » Sun Aug 11, 2013 2:57 pm

Apologies if there is a thread for this. I checked and couldn't find one.

Here is the bug report:
* (Unit #46299 - https://www.lds.org/directory/#) <=> [Ward Leaders]<=>[Young Women], the President and 2nd Counselor appear twice.
* I tried removing the YW presidency in MLS, sync'd that to CHQ and looked in https://www.lds.org/directory/#, a single instance of the President and 2nd counselor still remained (the YW presidency should have been empty)
* I re-input the YW Presidency. The President and 2nd Counselor were duplicated again.
* MLS and Ward Tools for Android the leader listings for the YW presidency appear once, as they should

Follow the Correcting duplicate or missing callings procedure. This will involve doing a Unit data refresh and pulling CDOL data into MLS. Once the CDOL data is in MLS you will be able to remove the duplicates.

From what I've seen with MLS 3.6 you have to remove the calling that you have in MLS and then request the Unit data refresh. That will bring down (on another send/receive) the remaining calling from CDOL. Then you should be in sync and have only one matching calling in MLS and CDOL.

Thanks JonesRK & jdlessly, that worked...

* remove the duplicated callings (the whole line)
* sync
* [File][Request Unit Refresh Data...]
* sync, wait a couple minutes (to get the unit refresh)
* sync
* ...and walla, the YW org displays the leaders as a single entry on all 3 GUIs - MLS, LUD and a fresh sync of 'LDS Tools'
