Senior Missionaries access

Postby frankmc » Wed Aug 24, 2016 11:09 am

As senior missionaries we don't receive mission-issued devices. With our records remaining in our home wards we apparently have no access to members/wards where we are assigned. Is there a method to be granted such access?

While I am not sure how appropriate this solution is for missionaries, your ward clerk can create an out-of-unit member record for you using LCR here:

In addition to creating an out of unit member record for each senior missionary a standard calling must be recorded.

If you're a full-time missionary assigned to a regular mission, you should have access to the LDS.org Directory for the units where you serve – assuming the mission office is keeping ward assignments up-to-date.

And vice versa -- the members of the unit in which you are serving should be able to see your mission photo in the directory under Missionary. There is often a delay in the mission office due to workload or turnover, and the missionary assignments don't get posted in a timely manner.

Not always true. Proselytizing missionaries yes, other types no. Our CES missionaries never show up. I'm not sure about MLS support missions.

I received a reply from the tech department of the IMOS, which is the mission office records management system. They communicated with the mission office staff and spoke to them how to set it up through IMOS.

This is the answer which I received. Once the mission office enabled my and my wife's names it worked as I had requested:

Full-time missionaries do have access to this information in LDS Tools, but your proselyting area must first be associated to the correct wards/stakes in the Internet Mission Office System (IMOS). We would recommend contacting your mission office to ensure this has been done.

Once you contact your mission office, you will need to do the following in LDS Tools:

Sync the app (More > Sync > Sync Now)
Once the sync completes successfully, you will be brought to the "Directory" page. Your home ward will be displayed by default.
At the top of the page, tap Directory.
Select the ward/stake in which you are serving.
The directory for that ward/stake will then be displayed.
Please reply to this message within 7 days if you have any additional questions or concerns regarding this specific issue. For new questions or problems, please submit them at https://missionary.lds.org.

We appreciate your service!
