Mls & luws

Postby bushgv-p40 » Mon Aug 11, 2008 8:03 am

2 (probably simple) questions
1. When membership changes are made in MLS (baptisms, priesthood ordinances, move-in, move-out, etc., how long does it take for those changes to be reflected on the Local Unit Web Site?
2. Is there any way to import calendar information onto the Stake Web Site, rather than having to hand enter every bit of information for the entire year?

Thanks for your help.

I think I saw a thread somewhere on the forums that it appeared to update on Tuesdays or Thursdays or something. I can't really remember, but I think it should take a week at the very longest. My experience seems to be just a few days.

I don't think so. But the Church is working on a LUWS 2.0, you could say. I think there will be many improvements and even more countries opened to use LUWS. However, I can't say for sure if importing will be included or not; I'm sure the Church has considered it as a possible feature.

Baptism information per se is not part of the information available in LUWS. However, once the individual becomes a member, or has a membership number, then it is as mkmurray pointed out. Priesthood ordinances are not available on LUWS either.
