Maps>Download households bug?

Postby jaocon » Tue Oct 07, 2014 1:07 pm

I am a new Ward clerk and getting up-to-date on the apps. I used the maps feature Download Households and imported the csv. I find that the Emergency Response tag and Special Needs tag are interchanged - in other words - those households with an Emergency Response Category are showing up in the sheet under Special Needs. I do not know if this is a consistent problem or just one that I am experiencing. It is fairly easy to cut/paste the information back to the correct columns in the sheet - but just wondering if that feature needs 'fixing'?

It's a fairly longstanding problem; it was reported last year in the topic download with confidential data

Headers for export CSV file reversed

I just tried the down load of the membership list in LDS Maps,
The headers at the top of the CSV file for EP and SP needs are reversed.

[Moderator note: This thread was split from the export households from ward directory? because the topics are different.]

Have you tried finding your answer on the LDS.org Help Center page or the LDSTech wiki?

This bug is nearly 2 years old now. But reporting it here on the forum won't get the message to the people with influence to fix it; that should be done by using the Feedback link from the Maps tool on LDS.org.
