Clerks Resources release 2.3 for stake clerks?

Postby michaelwaynesmith » Sun Mar 16, 2014 4:32 pm

Clerk Resources, Release 2.3, claims to allow editing the information on the Ordinances tab (among other things). I'm a stake clerk, and have responsibility for Melchizedek Priesthood ordinations and temple ordinances, yet this is not editable for me on the ordinances tab. I am able to edit the recommend from the individual tab link.

Although the release notes do say that MP ordination dates are now editable, it didn't specify who can do it. Up to this point, stake clerks have not been able to edit anything on the member's profile, so I'm not surprised if this capability is still available only at the ward level.

The information that can be edited is extremely limited so far. The only thing that can be edited is the baptism, confirmation and Melchizedek ordination dates. You can't add any of these ordinances, only edit the date for an existing ordinance. Giving stake clerks access would require additional programming to allow the ordination date to be edited without allowing the baptism and confirmation dates to be edited. My guess is they decided not to do that yet since the edit ability is so limited and isn't that useful for stake clerks. Again, my guess is that they will fix that when they add the ability add ordinations.
