LDS Tools Mobile with lists

Postby reconabe » Sun Dec 30, 2012 9:29 am

I am a new young mens president. I would like to be able access lists of my young mens quorums on my mobile device. I am able to generate lists from my computer, but I am unable to do so from my iPhone 4s using LDS tools. Is there something I am missing? I also keep hearing from current leadership about an app called "Ward Tools" I cannot find this app anywhere. Am I missing something? I feel like we should be able to see rosters from a mobile device, and that it would be a helpful tool so I dont have to carry around a huge bulky notebook on sundays.

There are currently no special permissions granted to a YM president when he uses LDS Tools -- he only has the same access as any other member.

When you say "I am able to generate lists from my computer," what do you mean? What is the source for those lists?

Ward Tools was a third-party application that allowed access to some data from MLS. It has been discontinued; that's why you can't find it anywhere.

LDS Tools in iOS will allow you to manually create lists of members, but there is no automatic function where you could generate a list of all YM, for example, as you might ask your ward clerk to do for you in MLS.
