MLS Messaging

Postby wrigjef » Sun Aug 28, 2011 11:47 am

I am using the unit to unit feature to send messages to clerks in our stake. Somehow they are responding or simply sending new messages to me from an individual username rather then their unit "financial clerk". When I reply I get an error and have to re address my message back to the unit rather then the individual. How can I simply reply back. If there is a way for me to recieve messages through MLS, that would aviod me missing messages that get opened by another clerk

You need to add each individual that sends a message to you to your address book. Then you can send them messages by name, or reply to a message from them. If you correspond frequently with the same individuals, then that will be worth the effort. If not, then you simply need to change the "To" after you hit the Reply.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.

Can you point me to where I can find directions to do this? I can't find it in the MLS help.

I don't know of anywhere to find written directions. But here is how you access the address book:

  1. In MLS, go to Messages
  2. Click "Create Message"
  3. Click the "Unit to Unit" radio button
  4. Click the Address Book button
  5. In the dialog box that pops up, click the Add link in the upper right corner.
  6. Type in the name of the person you want to be able to send to
  7. Select the unit in the dropdown box
  8. Click OK.
  9. Repeat steps 5-8 for everyone you want to add.
  10. If you want to send a message now, check the box for each desired recipient.
  11. Click OK.

Thanks I'll give it a try next time I am at the church. I do not remember seeing an "add" link but I may have just missed it.
