Right calling in LDS Directory and LDS Tools?

Postby sebastianmichanek » Sun Jun 12, 2011 11:08 am

Hi, I can't see in LDS Tools or in LDS Directory f.ex. that I have got a new calling ac 2. counselor to the branch president. It's right in MLS.
When will this be updated? Do anyone know?
Thank you,
Sebastian Michanek

It can take up to two days for the change to be reflected in the online applications. I just noticed that a calling I entered into MLS last Sunday did not appear online until Tuesday.

Have you tried finding your answer on the LDS.org Help Center page or the LDSTech wiki?

After doing a send/receive from MLS it should be in CDOL in less than an hour. As soon as it is in CDOL it shows up in LDS Directory, but not in classic ward web site.

Since yours didn't come through one thing you can try is to make a minor change to your calling in MLS (change the set apart flag for example) save it, then change it back to the correct value. Then a send/receive should send it up to CDOL.

Thank you. We changed the calling in MLS over a week ago. And last sunday did some updates to see if something was happening. But it still not updated on LDS Tools. Do we need to do anything in the MLS? Export it or other thing?

As long as the standard calling is entered in MLS properly, that's all you have to do. There's no extra export step.

You or your branch clerk should check in CDOL to make sure the calling appears correctly there. That's the key to any online system. If it's not in CDOL, try modifying it again as Ryan Jones suggested. If it's in CDOL, but doesn't appear as a standard calling (black text -- not orange), then fix the calling in MLS to be a standard calling and transmit again.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.

After the calling is in MLS and sent to CDOL, you still need to update your LDS Tools database, at least on the iTouch. You have already done that, I presume.
