New assistant clerk needs access through

Postby Ncallens » Tue Sep 30, 2014 7:13 pm

A few months ago we got a new statistical clerk. Last quarter he used mls to enter the quarterly report and got the message that it could be done through This quarter he is attempting to enter it in but he has no clerk tools associated with his account in We have looked at his account and it appears to be setup properly. He has access in mls.

Is there something I need to do as the Ward Clerk to ensure the assistant ward clerks have access to the clerk tools in

Is he in the standard calling "Ward Assistant Clerk" or "Ward Assistant Clerk--Membership" in MLS? Access on is tied to calling, not to MLS user accounts.

He needs to be listed in a standard position in MLS. That would most likely be "assistant clerk" since "statistical clerk" is not a standard position. Custom positions are a non-starter: zero rights on-line.

However, I'm not entirely sure what rights he'd have and if it would be enough to do the quarterly report. MLS rights are completely irrelevant when it comes to right on-line.
