Integrated Member list - Internet Accessable

Postby JimChatterley-p40 » Mon Nov 29, 2010 10:59 am

What is the status of the internet software that will allow various stake and ward leaders to update and use the church membership lists.
I am serving as a Senior Missionary in Geneva, Switzerland . We need a way way to send our activity calender by email to our list of young single adults.
Of course the list of members is constantly changing so more interactive and accessable internet base sofware with pass code access would be most helpful.
Thanks,
Elder Jim Chatterley

The new calendar that is part of new.lds.org at http://new.lds.org/church-calendar seems like it should meet your needs. It takes a somewhat different approach from what what you suggest, but I think it should work out even better.

The stake or ward can create as many calendars as needed. For example, you can create a stake YSA calendar, which would have only events at the stake level for young single adults. Then every young single adult in the stake can login to the calendar using their LDS Account and see the calendar. They can choose which of the stake's and ward's calendars they wish to subscribe to. They can even sync these calendars with their Google Calendar or Outlook or any iCal-compatible calendar, such as you might use on an iPhone.

So with this approach, you don't have to send anything out at all -- instead, the current calendar is immediately available to all ward/stake members, and can even by automatically synchronized with calendars on handheld devices and other calendars. For more details, see the New Calendar Help.

There are additional tools related to membership records available for stake and ward priesthood leaders on new.lds.org, but their use is restricted to bishoprics, stake presidencies, and related clerks and executive secretaries. However, the new directory at http://new.lds.org/directory does provide some contact information for all members in the ward and stake.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.
