New Unit missing

Postby russellhltn » Sun Sep 20, 2015 10:18 pm

My stake had a branch created on August 9th. It's been in the CDOL and Directory for several weeks now - but doesn't appear in the drop-down list in maps. Anyone else seeing this?

I'm in a unit that was just created 3 Sundays ago. Our unit showed up in the Directory the next day (I assume it showed in CDOL but I don't have to access to know for certain) but it didn't show up in maps until about the Saturday after. So there is obviously additional work that has to happen to make it show correctly in maps. But if it's been several weeks I'd assume that something has fallen through the cracks.

The FM group also has a database of properties. I don't know if that is what is used to relate units to a meetinghouse or not; I just know it exists.

Good thought. The property number is associated with the branch in CDOL, so I don't think that's it. But the times still haven't come though. That might be a hold-up. I'll have to drop in and toggle the times.

Well, getting the times added to CDOL didn't fix it. So I'm not sure why it isn't showing up. As I said, the property number is showing in CDOL, so I think the location has been entered.

I recently had some units drop off the map for a bit. I asked the Stake Clerk about it and by the time he looked, they had reappeared. Maybe there's something funny going on with the Maps.
