LDS.org Clerk Tools - Send a Message Function

Postby bbrasmussen » Thu Jun 06, 2013 8:17 pm

We have newly discovered this feature in our ward and love the ability to send email messages to ward members via the church website. However, is there a way to change the sender's name? It currently defaults to the sender's full name including middle name (Ex: Brother First Middle LastName)? This format is a bit much, and I'm a little uncomfortable sending out my middle name to hundreds of email recipients, some of whom I'm unsure of their computer/email security measures. If there's not currently a way to change/edit our email sender's name, can this be added as a feature request? Thanks.

The sender should go to ldsaccount.lds.org and edit his profile. The name used is the "First Name" field followed by the "Last Name" field. I'm guessing that in your case, the "First Name" field actually contains both your first and middle names.

Thanks. That was it. The new ldsaccount.lds.org doesn't allow name changes. Thankfully the link to the old one via the subscriptions button still allows users to edit the name. Editing the name is a feature that would be nice to see added back into the new ldsaccount interface.
