mls 3.5 - eleven year old scout leader no longer listed in primary

Postby sasgrw » Sun Oct 14, 2012 9:07 am

I'm going through the 'custom positions review'. I changed our eleven year old scout leaders to use the standard name but now they don't show up in the primary list. I did a send/receive and restarted MLS just to make sure nothing was out of sync.

Prior to the change, if I went to Organizations > Primary, I could see the eleven year old leaders in the 'other callings' along with all the primary teachers. Now they're not there.

If I view an individual's record, their calling is listed as Group=Primary, Position=Eleven-Year-Old Scout Leader, Class=Scouting (eleven year old). So it looks like it's in the right place but it doesn't show up in the primary list.

Have you looked in the new "scouting" organization?

I don't see a scouting category under the Organizations menu. I looked under the Other and YM submenus too.

Take a look in the classes under the primary organization. I noticed that there was a default 11 yr old scout class and the leaders were showing up in the Other callings for that course.

Yes, I had looked at that already too. Sorry I forgot to mention it. I also looked under 'other'.

Since MLS 3.5 is not officially released, any issues should be reported to MLS Technical Support.

In 3.5 the Eleven-Year-Old Scout leader should show up under the Primary organization, and be available to add as a position under Other Callings.

If it doesn't then there are probably other standard positions that are not showing up as well. Not an official offer of support - but post your unit name or number if this is the case - trying to find a pattern with these missing positions.
