Auto populating for officers sustained form

Postby charly3358 » Wed May 14, 2014 4:11 pm

We have Ward Conference next Sunday but when I opened the form to use for the sustaining less than half of the callings populated, that is most of the form is blank. I checked the callings using the other menu's and they are all up to date, for example the young men's president and counselors all show as sustained and set apart in the presidencies menu but then they don't transfer to the sustaining officers form. However they do show up on lds.org so I'm usng that one instead of typing in all the data. But what could fix this? Do I ask to have mls reinstalled? or is there a new update which could fix these problems?
By the way, are we going to still be using mls in 2015 or will everything pass over to lds.org as some in my stake are claiming?

Unless this is coming from church employees, I'd treat it like any other faith-promoting rumor.

If nothing else, project time-lines tend to slip. So I'd take it with the proverbial grain of salt even if I heard it from the project manager's own lips. ;)

To answer your original question, it appears there may be a problem with your MLS. We usually have one calling that doesn't show up, but most of them are there and the list is well populated, nothing like the "less than half" you describe.

I would do two things. First, check to make sure everyone is in a standard calling and then try the list again. Second, get with your stake technology specialist to see about a reinstall of MLS.

If a feature is available in Leader and Clerk Resources, we recommend you use the feature there. We've been gradually steering you that way ("This functionality is also available on the Internet on LDS.org.") and will begin nudging a little harder ("You are being redirected to a page on LDS.org on the Internet. If you are unable to connect to the Internet, please contact your stake technology specialist for assistance.") in the future.

I'm both wondering why it isn't working and not really worried about it. It's more likely we would deprecate the feature at this point than fix it.

Cool... thanks for the advice.

Considering that it does work ok on lds.org, I guess it´s better to go with that than reinstall mls...
