Meeting time does not update on lds.org

Postby bkrawlings » Wed Aug 05, 2015 5:05 pm

It has been over a week since I updated the meeting time in MLS under System Options and the time is not showing up on LDS Tools or lds.org. Please help me figure out how to get everything updated.

You could try making another change and doing a send/receive to see if that brings things into sync. Otherwise, I think you're going to have to call support.

Many years ago, this would break and not be discovered until the end of the year. Perhaps the developers would consider this in the next round of moving functions to the web. I don't think the information serves any purpose in MLS. It's only there because way back when, MLS was the only data-entry system available to local units. That's certainly not the case anymore. Moving that function to the web would seem to simplify things.

It is on the list. I think it is being worked on now.

Good to know. Any suggestions for the OP?

I am researching it right now. I'll let you know what I find out. I did see that the new ward that was created in my stake doesn't have the meeting times listed either. I think there might be a bug in CDOL with meeting times updates when then don't already exist.

Just yesterday we created a new branch in my stake, so there's another test case for you - once we get the computer and MLS set up.

There is a bug in CDOL. It has been fixed and is being tested now. I'll let you know when it has been released.

I have updated your meeting times to match what MLS sent up.

Just wanted to add a note that the meeting time bug is still in effect. My bishop changed my ward's meeting time to 11:00 AM last week, but the time in Meetinghouse Locator has not changed yet.

If it still hasn't changed then that is a different bug. In your case the change made it into CDOL which is the first step (and what was failing for others).

The changes didn't make it to CDOL for our new unit. I'll have to go back and see if maybe I didn't do a S/R after inputting it.
