Two callings causes problems with access

It appears as though my calling as Assistant Stake Clerk overrides my access to my calling as a Councilor in the Bishopric. Does anyone else have this problem ? Is there a work around ?

At lds.org you can only be treated as holding one position at a time, and there is a hierarchy that is followed. Your Assistant Stake Clerk calling will override your Bishopric Counselor calling.

The only work around is to decide if you wish to keep the access allowed by your assistant stake clerk calling, or have the stake drop that calling out of MLS so that your bishopric counselor calling will determine your lds.org access.

That is in Clerk Resources. Several places multiple callings work just fine.

That's a little too general of a statement. Most applications (calendar, directory and lessons) handle both callings just fine. Only the Clerk and Leader Resources application has some problems where the stake calling takes precedence.

My personal experience is that most of the applications don't work properly for a person with 2 callings, 1 at Stake level and 1 at ward level. Both callings are in CDOL correctly. All help is appreciated.

Is it possible to fix the software to solve this problem ?
As I have this problem then others do also, and it limits our use of the software.

There is a know problem with the Clerk Resource site. That site is customized to the calling and therefore there are issues with how to customize it for more than one calling at a time. We've had a statement that they are considering out how to deal with that but no specifics have been given (include any time frame).

If you're having some other problem, you'll need to provide more details of what exactly isn't working. I, at least, haven't heard of other problems.

Can you cite examples? So far only the Clerk and Leader Resources are known to have problems with dual callings.
