How to get out of unit bishopric into LUWS

Postby tmalone » Thu Dec 06, 2007 8:13 pm

All members of the Bishopric of our local stake singles ward including myself, the ward clerk, are from out of the unit. We are in MLS as out-of-unit members but the LUWS will not recognize us to put us into the leadership area. Is there a workaround or a suggested solution?

As a BYU singles ward web admin, I had to approach the stake web admins to add the out-of-unit bishopric (and optionally high council rep) as out-of-unit members on the stake web admin pages. Unfortunately, LUWS doesn't sync on much of what is entered in MLS right now.

How to add out-of-unit Bishopric

Thanks. That was the right solution. The Stake admin had to add the out-of-unit Bishopric and then I could add them / us to the ward leadership pages.

Just make sure the stake website administrator knows that on MLS it's Out of Unit Member, but on the website it's Non-resident Member. We had some confusion in our stake over the different titles. And to add a non-resident member to the website, it has to be done on the Stake Administrator Options page.

And to avoid confusion, make sure the non-resident member knows that when he first signs in to the site, he will default to the site of the unit for which he is a non-resident member. To access his home ward web site, he must then click on Stake and Ward Web sites and enter his home ward name. So non-resident members have access to both sites - they just need to be made aware of how to do so.
:D Happy to serve
