Finding the LDS Account Sign-on page

Postby dmaynes » Mon Jun 29, 2009 3:00 pm

The LUWS sign-on page is easily found from http://www.lds.org and clicking on Stake and Ward Websites or by entering https://secure.lds.org/units into the browser window. But, the LDS Account sign-on page is not so easily found for normal members. That page is https://apps.lds.org/sign-in/go/login.jsf. I can never remember this URL and I don't know an easy way to navigate to it. My current solution is to pretend I don't have an LDS Account and enter my membership number and birthdate on the LDS Account registration page. I am then given a link to navigate to the LDS Account sign-on page.

What have I missed? Does anyone have simple directions that I can give a ward member for accessing this page in order to perform maintenance on the LDS Account?

Because it would be confusing to have another sign-on link on the LUWS sign-on page it may not be desirable to have a link to the LDS Account sign-on page on the LUWS sign-on page, but most of the members of my ward only know about the LUWS sign-on page and if they need my help signing into their LDS Account so they can change their e-mail address, it can be difficult.

It seems like my best option is to place the URL for the LDS Account Sign-on page into the "Additonal Web Resources" section of the ward website's home page. Optionally, an enhancement to LUWS mighty allow a member to directly access the LDS Account maintenance page after signing into the ward website.

Does anyone have a better idea?

Thanks,
Dennis

http://ldsaccount.lds.org is easy to remember and works fine.

From the LUWS login page, you can also click on any of the LDS Account-related links and then click on the LDS Account logo at the top left of the page that is displayed. That will take you to the LDS Account home page as well.

Thank you. It was not obvious to me that the LDS Account logo was hiding a link. And, you are right. the http://ldsaccount.lds.org link is easier to remember. I only use it rarely.

I wonder if there is a way to make this link more visible without cluttering up the page design, too much.

Here's an answer to this question for others who might have encountered the same problem.

After the member with an LDS Account signs in to the ward website, the "Update Profile" link will display an account maintenance page. On that page, there is a link for resetting the account password, that displays the http://ldsaccount.lds.org/ page when you click it.
