Updating Bishop's Phone Number on maps.lds.org

Postby jordanchristensen » Mon Nov 07, 2011 10:32 am

I'm trying to help my Bishop update his work phone number as listed on his contact information displayed on the map, when you search for our ward. [url=http://lds.org/maps/index.jsf#x=find/places&m=google&lat=38.91132212265578&lng=-104.86312866210938&z=16&t=3&places=meetinghouses&id=243086,wards&find={id:"243086,wards"}]Sample here.[/url]

I found this reference: "If the bishop or branch president's name is not correct, local leaders must change this information in the Member and Leader Services (MLS) software." (Source)

I've searched high and low and can't find the place in MLS to update the phone number. I have admin rights in MLS. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks!

As you've noticed, there's no place to record work numbers in MLS. Your Bishop should be able to change it himself on CDOL. But only his login will work. The alternative is to have the stake file a Unit Change Request

Thanks for the quick reply! I'll connect with him and try the CDOL login.

Russell, the incorrect phone number was not listed on the CDOL. Anyplace else we should check to get it updated?

Thanks.

At this point I'd suggest contacting Local Unit Support.

I compared the numbers for your unit in the CDOL with what is provided on the LDS Maps and they are the same.

There are two telephone numbers provided on LDS Maps for the bishop. The first is the bishops office telephone number at the meetinghouse. The second is his home phone number as listed in the CDOL. The bishops office number is changed through the FM database (FMAT). The second, his home phone number can be changed by the bishop in the CDOL.

It was the first one that I thought was incorrect... I never thought to check it against his office line. He hardly uses that phone. Thanks for catching that.
