Name not changing after marriage is recorded.

Postby cdw3423 » Sun Oct 23, 2016 9:00 am

I have been using the "Add Marriage" link on the "Family" tab for a members record on the website. However, after I record a marriage for a sister in the ward to a non member, her name does not change. Am I missing something or is this a bug? The only way I can think to fix it is is to manually change the name and check "Spelling Correction" as the reason.

Change the name for the newly married sister in the sister's record. After entering the name change and clicking "Save" a prompt asking for the name change reason will appear. Select the "New Marriage for the Member" option and then click the "Save" button.

Last time I tried that and it told me to record a marriage. But this time it worked.
