Seeing high council assignments

Postby dorantm » Sun Jul 13, 2014 8:11 am

I love the new app for android. It would be great if the High Council list under stake callings also showed specific assignments. Knowing who to contact directly for specific stake level resources (ie: scouting, facilities, etc.,) would be very helpful.

This has been asked for for years, position assignments would need to be created per handbook designations. Then the problem becomes the differing implementations I'd stakes.

We are working on the ability to record the specific assignments. Basically it would be the ability to link them to ward/branches in the stake, other organizations in the stake (stake YW, RS, primary, etc), pick from a predefined list of responsibilities, and put in custom text. This would start in LCR where the data would be entered. I'm guessing over time it would be shown in the directory and LDS Tools.

This is great news; thanks! I assume this will come with, or after, calling editing functionality on Leader and Clerk Resources... Will assignments be available for other callings besides High Councilor? For example, if your ward has several assistant clerks, it would be nice for members to see on the LDS.org directory (later on) which one to contact for specific things. Or for it to be made more clear that the executive secretary makes appointments with the bishopric (by recording that as an assignment that appears on the directory).

They will be available for Stake/District/Branch Presidencies, Bishoprics, High Councils including Executive Secretaries and all Clerks.
