New Meeting House, Update Ward Address

Postby deanphillips » Sun Sep 05, 2010 9:51 pm

We have a new meeting house that we will begin using next Sunday, September 12th. No new wards are being created, just moving 2 wards from an old location to the new building. We need to update the meeting house address on the existing Ward Website but the Stake Website Admin and myself, Ward Website Admin, do not see any place we can do this on our own.

Is this accomplished on MLS in the clerks office similiar to updating the First Meeting Start Time?

Thanks.

Yes. In MLS, the address can be changed by going to Edit>System Options>Unit. The second section on that tab is the address.

I think that may come from a FM Group database. I'd call Local Unit Support to find out for sure.

Try using a Google search by adding "site:tech.lds.org/wiki" to the search criteria.

I'd still check with Local Unit Support unless someone can confirm from experience that LUWS takes that from MLS.

You may be right. The address in MLS may be for internal purposes only and not linked or pushed to the LUWS yet. The last time we had a ward address change the FM Group had to make that change through their system.

FM group makes the change. Sure would be good to have the half dozen places to make updates and people to call when these activities happen....

Maybe a Wiki entry?

As others have suggested, the FM Group needs to make the permanent change. However, in the meantime, you can add a note in the meeting times section of the unit home page that indicates that the unit is now meeting at a new meetinghouse, and then give the new address.This is very similar to what we do when meeting times change and the official information does not flow through the system in a timely manner. And as soon as the permanent address is updated, just delete the note.

You can contact the CDOL (LU support can redirect you) and have them make the change. You can also have them update phone numbers etc.

Thanks for all the response. It is appreciated. We will try the FM Group, they should already be on it since we begin meeting in the new build this coming Sunday.
