Assistant technology specialists

Postby simonawright » Fri Oct 03, 2014 5:35 am

The calling of assistant technology specialist was announced in a letter on the 3rd July.

Does anyone know what access they have?
Will the global service centre sort technical issues with them?
Do they have access to the technology manager site?

Thanks for the link to the FAQ, it was very helpful. The only thing that concerns me is point #6.

6. What type of systems access do assistant technology specialists receive?

​When the calling is put into the MLS system correctly, they will have similar access to STSs, including access to Technology Manager ( and all help content at Like STSs, they do not automatically get access to MLS.

I have no problem with the visibility of the firewall status pages, but the ability to reset it and (soon) to even rescript it gives me concern. I would feel better if those particular functions were only visible to the STS and higher callings.
So we can better help you, please edit your Profile to include your general location.

I have no problem with the calling have access to the firewalls. Certainly helps when you have qualified people in those callings. I know a ton of stake clerks that I'm terrified they have the access because they have absolutely no experience with technology.

Regarding the use of Technology Manager ( the Assistant Stake Technology Specialist has basically the same rights as the Stake Technology Specialist. The only difference in TM is the Assistant cannot (for now) upgrade the Meetinghouse Firewall. The right to upgrade a firewall is currently limited to STSs and Facility Managers.
