MLS 3.5 and data transfer to LDS.org

Postby lambertcc » Sun Nov 11, 2012 11:29 pm

I have a problem: I added a calling in MLS to an organization and selected a member to fill that calling (standard calling). In MLS, the calling I just added disappeared. I added it again with the same member info. MLS is now tracking one calling however on LDS.org that same calling is listed twice with the same member. I can't delete the duplicate because MLS only shows one calling. Any suggestions or help?

Did the calling include a class (either in Primary or Sunday School)? If so, it might be the same problem talked about in this thread: https://tech.lds.org/forum/showthread.php?13866-MLS-3.5-Primary-teacher-callings-disappearing-and-duplicating

I saw a similar problem on Sunday. I added a second primary teacher to a class, but it didn't show on the list. I added it again. When I went to the option to reorder callings, I saw both of them listed. I moved them so they were together. When I did that, they both showed up on the list. Looks like there is some kind of internal problem that doesn't refresh correctly. I didn't try it, but I wonder if you exit from the callings screen and re-open, it might display properly. Or, might need to exit/restart MLS.

I have found that exiting the screen and re-opening will usually do the trick. This happens in other areas of MLS, as well. It has been a long time since I had to actually restart MLS to fix a display problem such as this one.
