Remove Information from Directory Per Member Request

Postby AileneRHerrick » Tue Dec 06, 2011 10:14 pm

A member of my ward does not want her information to appear in the New Directory. I know how to remove her information from LUWS, and have done that, but I am uncertain about how to remove her information from view in the New Directory. Can I do this, or do I need a clerk to do this?

Thank you!

You'll need a clerk, or the member herself to make the household private. That can be done by clicking on the Edit Profile link in the family details. Remember to save the changes (clear down at the bottom - you may need to scroll for families).

Okay, I don't see the "Edit Profile" in family details. I will contact someone who should have more administrative privileges than I do and see if they can take care of it.

A suggestion: this feature should be available to ward website administrators, as it has been in the past. If people have concerns about their privacy, I'm the one that they contact!

Thanks for your speedy reply!

You can look at your own family for an example.

Yes, I see it for my own family, but not for other families. However, I have other administrative privileges such as managing and approving photos.

The challenge is that in the new Directory, the "Edit Profile" capability combines privacy and data modification abilities. If someone has the right to edit the profile, they can not only change the visibility of email addresses, phone numbers, and the household itself, but they can also change the actual data on the profile, which then changes the information on the membership record(s). Changing visibility might be a reasonable function of a website administrator (as was done on the Classic site), but changing data is appropriately (in my opinion) restricted to clerks and bishopric members. You can see this post that explains the decision made to preserve this distinction.

It's certainly conceivable that the Edit Profile function could be changed to allow website administrators to change visibility but not data; however, that is a more complex software design than simply restricting access to the Edit Profile function itself based on calling.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.

Ah that makes sense. I don't need to edit data (and don't see a reason why I would need to), but being able to change the visibility would be nice.
