Find Places of Worship (Ward and Stake)

Postby dbyram » Mon May 12, 2014 3:48 pm

I have noticed that the meeting times listed for the Wards that use our building are incorrect. This also was brought to my attention a couple of times in the past month. Who is responsible for placing the correct meeting times on the 'Find Places of Worship' site (https://www.lds.org/maps/)? My wife and I were out of town recently and discovered the same problem on the local wards web site. I am the assistant ward membership clerk and would like to help out if I can. Thank you.

Each ward must update their meeting times in MLS under Edit > System Options > Unit. As membership clerk you might be able to change that yourself. I'm not sure if it requires administrative rights or not. If you can't, then your ward clerk can do it. If the times are correct in MLS but wrong on maps.lds.org then try changing them to something else, doing a send/receive and then changing them back and doing another one.

Thank you. I do not have Administrator rights...only our Ward Clerk has that. I will talk to him and try to make the appropriate changes to the meeting times. Why would the times be incorrect on LDS maps if we correct the times on the Ward web site?

There is no ward web site anymore, at least none that shows meeting times.

But occasionally the sync between MLS and the CHQ systems fails. MLS only tries to transmit after there is a change so if the sync doesn't work it doesn't try again. So it's possible for MLS and maps.lds.org to be out of sync.

I'm not sure what you mean by "Ward web site." Long ago, there was an option for setting meeting times on the old (LUWS) web sites. But those were retired a while back and so that's not an option. The only place to correct the meeting times at this point is in MLS, and the meeting times set there are then sent to LDS Maps.
