Sisters as HT Companions

Postby johnsco » Sun Apr 26, 2015 10:35 pm

It is not often by sometimes we need to assigned our Home Teaching companionships with a sister (generally the spouse).
In creating and /or editing companionships I am not seeing the listing of sisters in the Ward to complete that task.
When the information was transitioned from MLS the current Brother/Sister companionships are showing up.
1. I have tried editing a current companionship.
2. I have tried creating a new companionship.
Question: Is there a way to make a Home Teaching companionship assignment with a Brother and Sister as companions?

While it's the exception, the last paragraph of Handbook 2: 7.4.2 shows this is acceptable. But it is limited to husband and wife companionships.

And one interesting thing: it's to be counted as both HT and VT. Which makes me wonder if this is set up in a special way in LCR in order to tally into both. Or perhaps the plan is to record just the husband as a lone HT and the wife as a lone VT and the visit is recorded twice - once each as HT and VT.

That will be available in one of the next few releases.

Glad to know a fix to manage this is in the works.

We have on Sister that was home teaching with her husband before and was transferred into the LCR, but now she is released and her husband has been assigned a new male companion, but I can't remove her as an "unassigned Home Teacher".
