Filtering Temple Recommend reports from MLS

Postby talljames-p40 » Sat Aug 01, 2009 9:53 pm

Is there a way we can print off a temple recommend holders report at the Ward level based on a filter eg. all priesthood holders, High Priests, Elders, etc.? I know you can get a report of all active temple recommend holders, and those that have expired. But, what about filtering based on say Priesthood?

kind regards
James

The only way to generate one report with both TR expiration date and priesthood is with a custom report. But with a custom report, it is certainly doable.

Have you tried Custom Reports? Instructions on MLS custom reports can be found in the Wiki article Custom reports (MLS). The only field for temple recommends is the Temple Recommend Expiration Date. You can use the 'has a value' compare operation for those with temple recommends. Then additional filtering criteria such as Priesthood can be added.

Have you tried finding your answer on the LDS.org Help Center page or the LDSTech wiki?
