Getting Started with Newsletter

Postby janelltey » Sat Apr 09, 2016 10:49 am

I am a Relief Society president and want to take a look at the newsletter program; however, after reading the "getting started newsletter" helps; I don't see where I can "add an article" and truly get started. From what I've read, my calling should allow me automatically to be a publisher. If someone knows how I go about this, please let me know.

Although the RS president is generally added by default as a publisher, it is possible for a ward administrator to change that. Also if any administrator made any change to the rights back a few years when the newsletter was in beta then the default publishers may not have been added.

Have a ward administrator (a clerk, bishopric member or executive secretary) look and make sure the RS President calling is still listed as a publisher. If not, he can add the calling back.

Also make sure your calling is recorded correctly. If you have access to LCR then your calling is correct.

There are two newsletters - ward and stake. Make sure you're switched to the same one as your calling ("ward" for ward Relief Society President). You should see a "+ New Article" on the right side of the light blue box.

If that's not there, there' s a couple of possibilities:
  • Your calling hasn't been recorded correctly. (as a standard position - not custom)
  • The MRN on your LDS account doesn't match your membership record.

I'd suggest get with your ward clerk to see what's going on.

Thank you. I'll check with our bishopric. My information is correct as I do have access to LCR.

Hmmm, that spoils my theory. The button to add an article doesn't look like a button, but more like a tag or a banner. So it can be easy to overlook. Toggle between ward and stake and maybe it will be more noticeable.
