How does a ward change the Sacrament Meeting time on the Meetinghouse locator?

In MLS, under System Options. See in the wiki for details: Edit Meeting Times.

Assuming the time changed January 1st, this should have been done already. When you change the meeting time for this year, make sure you set a reminder for late December (the reminder date is part of the MLS feature for setting the meeting times) so that you take care of this on time next year.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.

Just a note. It takes a couple of days to get updated in Meetinghouse locator after the Send/Receive.

When I first tried doing this I had read somewhere that it took a couple of weeks for the change to show up on our Ward web site. So I ended up making the change in MLS much earlier than I needed to. If, for example, your ward changes meeting times at the beginning of the year, you're safe to update the meeting times in MLS on the last Sunday of the year and, by the next Sunday, it will be correct on the ward web site.

As a matter of fact, I updated the meeting times twice at the end of 2011. On December 18 I updated it to reflect our abnormal schedule on Christmas (we normally have Sacrament meeting last). I figured if we had any visitors who would only know when to come based on the meetinghouse locator I wanted that information to be as up-to-date as possible. It worked perfectly. Then, on December 25, I updated the scheule to reflect our 2012 schedule. Again, the web site information was correct within a couple of days.

In the past there have been some interface difficulties. They seem to be very few and far between now. Our success has been much better this year.
