Multiple records for one person and ad hoc report question

Postby Matt W.-p40 » Fri May 18, 2007 9:54 am

My membership clerk accidentally entered the same new child of record 3 times in our system, so they have three membership records. How do I clean out the two erroneous records?

Also, does anyone know how to generate a list of members with multiple callings?

1) From the MLS toolbar: Membership | Records | Cancel Record.
Select the copy to be deleted.
Select the correct reason for cancellation (duplicate record) and give the record number of the record to keep.

2) I can't see a way to get that list, but you can list the members with callings: From the MLS toolbar: Organizations | Reports | Members with Callings. I assume that if you have a member with multiple callings it will show up that way on the report. Not great, but not ugly either.
