How long before the info appears on the LUWS?

Postby skiptaylor » Thu Feb 12, 2009 11:19 am

We've started a new Branch. The information was transferred from the old computer/ward to the new computer/branch.

I'm not seeing their information on the new Branch LUWS. How long does it take for it to transfer there?

It can take anywhere from 1 to 8 days, from what I've seen and read. You might want to review these threads:

Synchronization delay?
Syncronizing website with MLS?

There's not much definitive, and a wide range of experiences, but I don't think there has been any official pronouncement on this question. In this post a Church employee said membership info was updated daily, but that was disputed by multiple other posts.

Thanks for the info Alan. I'll be patient for a while and see what happens with it all.

Has the new branch itself shown up in LUWS? That might take a bit longer. I think the paperwork from the stake that it was actually done has to make it to CHQ.

I'd expect the membership move to be the normal delay.

The branch is showing and has blank pages. The members were moved Tuesday afternoon (Pacific Time) but is still blank.

Just have to wait I guess...

Has the new branch MLS computer picked up the membership records? I do not think it matters, but it will give you a feel for how quickly the records are transfering through the system.

And at LUWS, since the branch is showing, I would suspect that you will see something by the end of the week. No promises, though. [grin]

Yes. It took about an hour to transfer the 192 records. Measured from Send/Receive to Send/Receive times.

I guess we'll see. I wanted to get this done before Sunday, but that may not happen. I'm not sure why it would take so long unless they have such things scheduled for certain times/days.

Guess we'll see.

Personally, I think this is the case, although I have no knowledge of how the system really works, except for the discussions that have taken place here in the Forum, and a very small sampling of my own experiences.

But I do think they do certain things once a week, or perhaps twice, and that they stagger the units where information is processed to balance the load.

The info appeared this evening. It wasn't there this morning when I checked.

So it's been 7 days after it was moved to the new Branch.

So now we know!
