LCR vs Directory for messages

Postby zaneclark » Mon Sep 28, 2015 8:31 am

I have been using the LCR "Send a Message" feature the last few weeks instead of the Directory and have noted some differences. First of all, it is MUCH easier in LCR as opposed to the select and paste method needed in the Directory. However, I miss the ability to format text in LCR. I understand this may be coming to LCR in future releases and that would be great. The other thing I have noticed is that in the Directory, I always got several "undelivered" emails for members that had incorrect or changed email addresses, but I never get any in LCR. I would guess that they are still undelivered, but the system does not return them to me.... Just an observation....

When you use LCR to send a message, you are not the actual sender. You are simply shown as the sender of the message.

I am having that same issue. I have created lists and from the list have gone to the up arrow and tried to send the text from the text option and it comes back deliverable. I have cut the lists to under 20. I have gone and set up the lists again & I still can't send them.... Please! Any suggestions? I've been trying to send this for over a month. I even went to Apple to see if I had the email & text set up correctly.

If you are creating lists, it sounds like you are using LDS Tools, not the Directory on LDS.org. There are now 3 different places to send messages, Tools, LCR, and the Directory on LDS org. Each has different capabilities...

Most cell service providers / carriers (like AT&T, T-Mobile, etc.) have a limit of how many recipients can be included when sending a text message. Usually the limit is 10 – if you try to send a text message to more than 10 people, you'll get an error. This error comes from your service provider, not from Apple or from the LDS Tools app.

Sending emails has limits too, on the maximum number of recipients, but usually you can have more recipients with email than you can with text messaging (like 100 instead of 10).

Is it possible to download the LCR beta someplace?

Nothing to download. LCR is a web page. I believe you're sent there if your stake is a beta stake. I don't know as as it a separate page you can choose to go to. As such, it may be more like a phased roll-out - they just call the first wave "beta".
