Can someone grant access to LCR for other callings

Postby Joslynkp » Thu Apr 13, 2017 8:13 am

I am the compassionate service coordinator in my ward. I have a committee with two additional members. We organize meals and service for the sisters in our ward as well as deliver birthday treats. Neither I or my committee has access to LCR so we have to ask the Relief Society presidency to send us the names of the visiting teachers and home teachers of families that we are organizing service for. We also have to ask them to send us a list of birthdays for the month, which they are unable to print so I am receiving multiple screenshots. We would like to be given access to visiting/home teachers, and birthdays to better serve our calling and to take some of the weight off of the R.S. presidency. Is there a way to do that?

I'm afraid that access is strictly based on callings and the rights each calling gets is determined by the general authorities in charge of those systems. There is no way for a unit to grant rights to additional callings.

However, the RS secretary should be able to create a birthday list as a PDF without a problem. If they can't then a clerk can.

No. Access to LCR is granted by calling. The calling a person has determines what features they can access in LCR (or whether they have access to LCR at all). No one has the ability to grant access to anyone beyond those access rules that are built into the system.

The Birthday List should be easy to print, specifying 12 months starting in January. That's something the RS secretary could do, which you could then work off of, making adjustments or reprinting as sisters move in or out. I checked the Access Table, and the RS Presidency has access. And anyone who has access to the Birthday List should be able to print it -- I just did so with no difficulty.

Wards and Stakes often configure their org structures vastly differently, there is just no way to account for items like this. If I were in this situation, I'd talk to the RS President and suggest either a counselor or the secretary be added to the committee to accommodate the things you're being asked to do that you don't have access to, Simple and easy solution to the situation.

Its not just you there are often things that a Bishop/Stake President/Clerk have access to that Counselors don't have access to. The idea is limit access to personal information to the smallest number of people that will still allow the template organization to work.

Besides going to one of the ward clerks, as someone had suggested, you could also ask the RS secretary to get the report. Such a task might fit will with someone who has the secretary calling.
