Recent update missing leadership resources

The recent update is missing access to information like ordinances, baptismal date, confirmation date, Temple recommend information and other such information that I could previously view in Tools. I am the Bishop of the Ward and relied greatly on this information being accessible on my phone.

Other Android users in the Bishopric (using different phones) report the same thing.

Anyone know if this information will be restored?

On my android phone when looking at the individual I see [Contact, Household, Callings and Classes, Home and Visiting Teaching, Membership Information] you will need to scroll the headings to see them all, the information you are looking for is under Membership information

And if you start in household view, after opening the household, you have to tap on an individual's name (even if that individual is the only person in the household), and only then do those headers show up to scroll through. (IMO, the current GUI is a bit lacking in intuitivity and wastes a fair amount of screen space.)

Ah ha!! Thank you for pointing out where to find the membership information. My Tools was defaulted to opening with household view vs individual (which I prefer). In household view, clicking on the individual does bring up the membership information option with all the member's data.

In the old version, I believe we still had to click on the individual to get the membership information but it was a little more intuitive. Amazing how I can barely remember the clicks required in the old version....it was just second nature. I still have the old version on my Galaxy Tab A tablet (just not in front of me right now), so I will be able to compare the different click-steps when I have my tablet in hand.

Again, thank you for helping me find the info!!

I'd agree with previous comments. There is member specific information not coming through, the main one being the membership number but ordinance info would be great to be available again.

Actually LDS Tools for Android does contain the membership record as well as ordinance information. Click on the members name, looking at the heading scroll to the right, click on Membership Information and it is all there.
