Syncing MLS Data With The Ward Website

Postby thomaspittman » Sat Jun 12, 2010 5:31 pm

Would it be possible for the MLS data to be synced up with the ward website automatically? All of the information that is present in both, should sync up to each other. So if a clerk makes a change to MLS it appears on the website, or if a member updates their own contact information that it gets reflected back into MLS (with a notification in MLS that this has happened).

Right now, things like the email address of a member are stored in 2 different places and we cannot set the one they are using on the ward website (problematic when they have an invalid address in there, that we would like to remove).

Our leadership directory tends to get hopelessly out of date as well. It would be great if the callings in MLS would sync up automatically with the list on the website.

Changes are in the works. But it will take time.

Look to the horizon! Go to beta.lds.org and log in with your LDS account (top right) and look at your new ward directory under "tools." I call them "cools!" A search on LDS.TECH forums for "beta Directory" will give you details. Oh, and welcome to the forum!
