Am I Confusing lds.org with the MLS?

Postby D1String » Sun Oct 11, 2015 11:09 am

Hi,
I am a new asst. clerk helping out with membership. I was told that I could do everything remotely/online? My bishopric is new and I have been given very little direction and I'm trying to figure out all the ropes.

But I'm having a hard time finding certain options online, for example adding new babies after blessings / new membership etc.

I don't have a log in to the pc in the clerks office. (Although the I don't understand why this would be my only option?)

Can these things be done on lds.org / clerk resources or do I have to hunt down the stake clerk and get a log in for the ward pc?

Not true. Things are moving that way, but it's not there yet.

Typically, everyone uses the same Windows login, but for functions not in LCR (on lds.org), you'll need a log in to the MLS program.

Your ward clerk should be able to create a login for you on the ward MLS. If you don't have a ward clerk for some reason the bishop should be able to do it. You shouldn't need a stake clerk and in most cases the stake clerk wouldn't be able to do it.

To clarify, most of the membership tasks are available on Leader and Clerk Resources (lcr.lds.org); for example:
– Viewing and printing reports and lists
– Moving records in and out
– Home and visiting teaching organization
– Editing contact information
– Updating callings
– Creating out-of-unit members
– Organizing members into quorums and classes
– Preparing class rolls

A few membership functions that are not yet on Leader and Clerk Resources are:
– Creating new membership records
– Recording ordinances
– Recording marriages and deaths
– Generating custom reports
For those membership items, and perhaps a few others, you'll still need to use MLS on the clerk computer.
