Assigning an Elder to Assistant HPG Secretary

Postby vitalitychernobyl » Fri Jun 02, 2017 3:34 pm

HP group leader says that according to the handbook, a member who is an Elder can be given the assignment of assistant HPG secretary, but I am not able to do this in the MLS interface. When I attempt to create this custom calling, the search member field seems to be filtering on HP in the ward. Is there a way I can accomplish this assignment in MLS?

Sometimes the developers are given "business rules" by the Priesthood department that don't quite match the Handbook. In that situation, it's the Handbook that's behind.

However, before assuming that, I'd move the Elder into the HPG. It's probably blocking callings from outside the quorum.

I think setting callings via MLS has been disabled a long time ago. So I doubt if that's an option.

Correct! Callings can only be done via LCR now.

Thank you for the responses. I will make sure to refer to the interface as LCR from now on :D
