Editing Head of Household in MLS

Postby bmoscon » Sun Jun 22, 2014 5:48 pm

We have a situation where for some reason in the household record only the husband is listed as the head of the household. The spouse shows up as "other", rather than the spouse. We can't seem to figure out how to edit the head of household record to fix this. Any suggestions?

You may have to remove the spouse and re-add her. When you add the person, MLS determines on it's own if it's the spouse or not by comparing the added record to the marriage information.

Make sure the marriage information is accurate. Also consider the possibility that the spouse has a duplicate membership record and you're adding the "twin" not the one he's actually married to.
