Setting up people in roles for administration

Postby jasonhyer » Thu Jan 02, 2014 4:28 pm

How long does it take after a person is set up in a role in MLS that has administrative rights before that person should be able to edit items in the Lesson Schedule? I assume that once the change in calling is transmitted from MLS that there is some syncronization that must occur but does anybody know how long that might take?

Example, I was added as website administrator in MLS today, how long before I should have rights to do administrative tasks in the lesson schedule?

Probably tomorrow. No guarantees.

MLS updates CDOL, which usually happens automatically. (A few key Tier 1 positions require human intervention and confirmation before updating.)

Then the computers talk to each other overnight and conspire to let each other know who ought to be able to do what. Ideally, everything is set after they counsel together but, as in real life, sometimes it takes a second pass before everything works.

Most often, though, it all happens within a day or two.

That is, if your calling was added as a standard calling in MLS, and not a custom calling.

Since you specifically said "administrator", the help file says: "Administrators for Lesson Schedules include bishoprics, clerks, executive secretaries, and ward website administrators. "

While there are other callings that have access to change things, they are not administrators. ("such as elders quorum presidents and Sunday School presidents, as well as their counselors and secretaries")
