See who your HTs are in LDS Tools

Postby ronjones515 » Sun Nov 27, 2016 9:11 am

As a EQ President, of course I can see all the assignments. But why can't the basic member see who their Home Teachers are in the LDS Tools app? I think this would go a long way in creating bonds between families and their HTs.

Since the information is there, I can only speculate that it's to create a bond between the HT and the quorum leaders. In an average ward, I wouldn't expect a lot of changes in HT over time. Otherwise, there would be no bond between HT and the families. It also gives the quorum leaders a chance to discuss the assignment with the HT. Things like background, special concerns, and situations. Things that should not be part of an on-line electronic system.

This isn't something the developers decide. The "business rules" are handed down by the Brethren.

Viewing Home Teaching Assignments in LDS Tools App

Postby balut228 » Thu Jan 05, 2017 5:52 pm

I am sorry if this has already been discussed here, but I couldn't find it when I did my search on the forum.

I am not in a leadership position which would enable me to view everyone's home teaching assignment on LDS.org. However, I think it would be very beneficial if I could at least see: 1) who my home teaching companion is, 2) who I have been assigned to home teach, and 3) who has been assigned to home teach me. I would like to view this specifically in the LDS Tools app.

I know I can get this information from the Elders Quorum President or another leader, but I would think that this specific information wouldn't be considered "confidential" to myself since it's my assignment.

Many thanks for the tips in advance!

It's been suggested many times. For example, here, here, or here.

Thanks for the reply, sorry I did not see the prior post. I am glad to see that I am not alone in this request, though.
