Privacy settings or addresses not displaying in MLS

Postby dfroshie » Wed Mar 13, 2013 8:48 pm

I am the ward clerk for my ward. I have a hand full of names in my ward that when you look at the directory of members, the address is not displayed below the name. Is this because that person or family has marked it "private"? I can obviously see the address when I click on the name and then address. I am wondering this because the stake is saying I have many families without address, but when I go through one by one, I see everyone with an address. Thanks for any help

When you print lists from MLS, the privacy settings from the Directory on LDS.org have no effect. All households will be included.

I guess the crux of the matter is what your mean when you say "the stake is saying I have many families without address." Where is "the stake" looking when they reach that conclusion? Are they looking in the Directory on LDS.org? Are they looking in stake MLS? Are they looking at residential addresses or mailing addresses? Is the stake person who is making this report a stake presidency member or stake clerk who should have permissions to see private addresses just like you do? Do some of these people have Ward Visibility set on their addresses, which would hide them from members of other wards (except for the stake presidency/clerks)?
