MLS Part Member Families

Postby kolisikepu » Sun Mar 30, 2008 6:41 am

Am I blind or is it not there?? Missionaries asked me the other day to print them out a Ward list and have the list display part member families. I said, it doesn't have it by default on the Ward directory list but there is a way.

I was quite stumped as to how to print the ward directory with part member families flagged just as the missionaries asked. I did manage however a custom report for the missionaries and gave them a less detailed ward directory.

So is there a way to flag part member families (household with family member not baptised) and print it out on a directory?? I remember seeing a directory once in my life time with PM flagged next to the family members name.

Any thoughts anyone? (I hate to say I'm blind.... I'll be worried)

It's funny you mentioned this as I just come from visiting that thread before reading your reply.

I understand now that I have to create a custom report.

My Bishop has asked me for a list of Partial Member Families in our ward, I'm just wondering if there has been any update or developments on MLS regarding this matter since this post was made?

None. I really doubt there will be any in MLS. There may be some time in the future in Leader and Clerk Resources.

Have you tried finding your answer on the LDS.org Help Center page or the LDSTech wiki?

Note that in the wiki under Custom Reports: Part Member Families, not only are the criteria for the report listed, but you can actually download the report to add it to your MLS custom reports list. So it should be pretty easy to get this report, even if it isn't built in.

And once you have the report downloaded (or you type it and save it,) it will be in your custom reports list and super-easy to print it each meeting.

Make it far more insightful to your bishop and ward council by adding two additional columns: "home teachers" and "HT statistics (12 months)" or the same with visiting teaching. Print it in landscape and adjust the column width or drop out some of those other columns. Now the report not only lists WHO is a part member family, but HOW SUCCESSFUL your unit has been at home (visiting) teaching them over the past year. Gives a different picture than the quarterly report HT (or VT) percentage!
