If anyone has questions, I may be able to answer them.
The only bug I've seen so far that keeps me from doing my job is that out-of-unit members aren't able to be added to multiple callings. There are several other feedback items I've submitted, but mostly just suggestions for improvements.
Here's the email that we got today, that I assume will be going out to everyone in a couple of months:
We’ve made big changes to Leader and Clerk Resources
You can now manage home/visiting teaching and callings, among other things, on LDS.org without having to use MLS on the computer at the Church. Just go to Leader and Clerk Resources (LCR) at LDS.org/lcr from any internet-connected device and sign in to your LDS Account.
Please note, because of this change, this data is no longer able to be updated from MLS as we work to retire that program and give you the resources you need directly on LDS.org.
We welcome your feedback
These changes are part of a beta test for select units that have expressed interest. We invite you to try out these new features and submit feedback by clicking the “Do You Have Feedback on This Page?” link on any LCR page. This will help us create the best resources and tools to fit your needs.
If you have questions about the beta test itself and your unit’s participation, send an email to LCRBeta@ldschurch.org.
Help us make sure the right people can use these resources
Because access to LCR is based on a user’s calling, it would be helpful if you could verify that all bishopric members; ward council members, their counselors, and their secretaries; and home and visiting teaching district supervisors and coordinators are recorded properly in LCR, using standard callings (custom callings will not allow access).
Here is a more complete list of items that have been added or improved with this LCR version
Organizations and Callings
Stake and ward clerks and priesthood quorum and auxiliary presidencies can now manage organization and calling information for their respective organizations.
Stake clerks can manage changes to stake presidency members and bishops and their contact information.
Stake and ward clerks can record callings for those who serve in the ward but whose membership records are not assigned to the ward, such as a young single adult ward bishop.
Ward organization information can now be viewed by the stake.
Callings by Organization now includes information about those serving from the ward as full-time missionaries.
Home and visiting teaching management
Using the Organizations menu, high priests group leadership, elders quorum presidencies, and Relief Society presidencies can now manage home and visiting teaching information for their respective organization. Stake home and visiting teaching reports are also available.
Out-of-Unit member management
Using the Membership menu, selected information for members whose membership records are not assigned to the ward but who regularly visit, such as a young woman visiting her father every other Sunday, can be included in appropriate ward lists, such as Young Women and Sunday School class rolls. However, responsibility for membership record updates, member interviews, and other related priesthood activities still remains with the member’s home ward.
The screens supporting confidential actions have been modified to look like other LCR screens.
The Confidential Member Information Report is now available to stake and ward clerks.
Once again, you can access Leader and Clerk Resources by going to lds.org/lcr and signing in with your LDS Account. We hope you enjoy these new resources, and we look forward to hearing your feedback.
