Callings by Organizations - Preferred Names?

Postby kirtkennedy » Sun Jan 16, 2011 10:39 pm

In "Callings by Organizations" names are indicated as "Formal" not "preferred". Why is that? Members would like to be called by their "Preferred" name.

I don't see that. When I display a Callings by Organizations report in MLS, I see preferred names. Note that there is a system-wide option in System Options > System that controls whether MLS shows full or preferred names throughout the application by default.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.

I can duplicate it in the online leaders tool. I know this is a MLS forum, but that was another place I thought to look.
