Ward office phone number in directory?

Ward office phone number in directory?

Postby rmrichesjr » Sun Dec 22, 2013 5:09 pm

Shouldn't there be a place for the ward office phone number (and maybe the hall phone number if applicable) in the Directory application? If so, where should the phone number be put so members can find it?

In the 2009-era directories, the front page had space for the ward office phone number and hall phone number. However, at least in my ward, I was not able to find a ward office phone number in the current online directory application. Fortunately, an old printout from 2009 had the information.

(This question is similar to portions of the thread that starts with this posting, but there isn't much of an answer there: viewtopic.php?p=64733#p64733)

I think the unit phone numbers formally part of the old LUWS should be a part of the Directory.

The left column below the menu list has plenty of room for unit data such as unit phone numbers.

Ahhh, yes. LUWS was the term I was trying to find for the old system that had the unit phone numbers.

To add unit phone numbers in the left column is something that would need to be added to the Directory application. Is that right? Or, is there some way a unit today can add information there? If the former, I think I might still have Jira access to file a feature request in case there isn't already an existing relevant feature request.

Correct.
