Ipod Address vs MLS

Postby techgy » Tue Jul 02, 2013 11:09 pm

From a member of our stake the following question;

I have the app LDS Tools on my iPod. Used it to look up a family's address that I visited today. They have lived there for a long time, and it showed the correct address.

Yesterday we printed out a Branch list yesterday from MLS, and lo and behold it lists an old address for the family. In LDS.org/directory it also has the old address.

Why would MLS have an old address while the LDS Tools app have the new and correct one? Any thoughts?

Most likely, someone re-entered the old address thinking it was the new/current one. That could be done in MLS or on-line by a clerk. It's a good argument for checking to make sure that only the clerks have membership edit rights in MLS.

If you want to test that theory, have the member re-sync LDS Tools. I'll bet it goes to the old address.
