Bug: MLS 3.5 Custom Callings

Postby nmcmaster » Mon Oct 22, 2012 1:50 pm

Since updating to MLS 3.5, the synchronization of custom callings between MLS and LDS.org has been buggy. The specific problem I have observed is that when I add a member to a custom calling, any custom callings add afterwards upload to the website with the same calling title as the first one.

Example:
Added John to Assistant Secretary.
Then added James and Jim as Home Evening Coordinators.
After sync, the LDS.org displays John, James and Jim as Assistant Secretary.

2nd bug, the website does not remove people from custom callings. When I attempted to edit James and Jim, LDS.org displays duplicate entries.

PS - Is this the best place to report MLS bugs? I can't find a better place to do it.

Can you send me your unit number in a private message? Also - have you checked CDOL to see what the callings show as there?

You posted this in the Leader and Clerk Resources forum. MLS issues should be posted in the MLS Support, Help, and Feedback forum. I've moved the thread to the correct forum, MLS Support, Help, and Feedback.

Have you tried finding your answer on the LDS.org Help Center page or the LDSTech wiki?

I've got an individual as a custom position "PFR" in Directory->Ward Leaders->Faciltiies, but what lds.org shows is that his position is "Choir Secretary" which is another custom position we have (under Music, of course). MLS shows this correctly.

I was able to track down and file a bug report related to the original post. The fix isn't in yet, but will be soon.
