Although I can understand the bishop's reluctance to have multiple callings listed for a clerk, it seems to me he has three choices at this point:
- Live with the financial clerk having no access to Leader and Clerk Resources
Unfortunately he is not the one who has to live with this.
- List the financial clerk as simply an assistant clerk (that doesn't let the ward know who is helping them with ward financial issues)
That is correct. The priority to the bishop is that the members know who to go to for finance issues.
I also wonder if assistant ward clerks are going to have access to the financial applications when they become available. If they will, then I see no reason to even have the positions assistant ward clerk - finance and assistant ward clerk - membership. These positions unnecessarily limit online application access.
In the thread "reduce need for custom callings
" the discussion moved into suggesting adding an assignment field to callings in MLS. This approach could possibly resolve the display of callings and assignments within callings to members viewing the directory while granting access to needed online applications.
- List the financial clerk with two callings.
This is exactly what he does not want to see.
