MLS vs LCR

Postby zaneclark » Fri Mar 11, 2016 10:26 am

I am making a presentation at our stake Priesthood Leadership meeting Sunday and wanted to make sure I have all the answers... I need to know what is still available only in MLS... I know that recording ordinances and printing certificates is still only in MLS and Custom Reports. According to the release notes, Finance is now available in LCR but I can't seem to access it. What else is only in MLS and what else should I tell them?

You can view finances. But all operations is still in MLS.

There's a number of membership functions are that only in MLS. I think changing the "Household name" is one of them.

This is all grouped under "recording ordinances," but to be more specific, here are some of the ordinances that can currently only be recorded in MLS:
– Recording a new child of record (such as after a baby blessing) and printing a certificate
– Recording a baptism and confirmation for an 8-year-old and printing a certificate
– Recording Aaronic Priesthood ordinations and printing a certificate
– Recording Melchizedek Priesthood ordinations and printing a certificate

Additionally, as mentioned by russellhltn,
– Editing or recording anything to do with finances: budget categories, expenses, donations, transfers
– Edit household members and household name

Miscellaneous other things:
– Custom reports
– Changing the 4-character abbreviation for your unit that shows up above your column in the stake quarterly report (I don't remember for sure, but I believe this is only in the stake MLS)
– Printing a full directory sorted by household (coming in the next release of LCR)

Altho we used to be able to Edit the baptism & confirmation data of current members in MLS, that function now automatically re-directs to LCR which doesn't allow edits of existing records (only Recording of baptisms/confirmations for Members of Record). This inability to make necessary changes/edits to existing baptism/confirmation data is problematic. Any idea when this ability be added to LCR, or restored in MLS?

What is your calling? This functionality is in LCR now, but is only available to the bishop, ward clerk and assistant ward clerk - membership.

And Assistant Ward Clerk (the generic one without Finance in the name).

It may not be obvious how to do this in LCR. You need to find the record in LCR, click on the Ordinances tab and then click on the little pencil icon to the right of the Baptism ordinance. If you don't have rights to edit membership records then that icon probably won't be there. After clicking on the pencil it should show an expanded page with a section for both baptism and one for confirmation with an Edit link in the upper right of each section.

Suggest you include "Select a Role" for the "Access Table" for such things as who can "Edit Member Contact Information" ...
