2011 Annual Church Material Order Form and Deadline

Postby fergusonfam-p40 » Sun Sep 19, 2010 8:11 pm

Hi, I read that on Wiki Clerk, that the annual Church Materials order was due Sept. 15th. But when I use the link that is on the site, it pulls up the PDF for last year's (2010) form. Any idea where the 2011 form is posted, and if the due date is still Sept. 15th (last week :)).?

thanks

The LDS Catalog home page features this notice:
Church Units: Annual Church Materials Orders will be available online on September 30th.

This was emailed to me from CHQ. ~Jake

First: the unit login IDs for LDSCatalog have been discontinued. Please go to our new web-site, http://www.store.lds.org. To logon to view Annual Curriculum, restricted materials or other items to be ordered for your unit, you would need to click the green ‘ENTER’ button in the Administration Materials Box in the right hand corner of the home page. Any member of the Bishopric, Stake Presidency or the Clerk will then need to sign in using their LDS Account—the same logon information they would use to logon to http://www.familysearch.org, their ward or stake web-site on http://www.lds.org, or onto MLS. If you do not have an account, instructions on how to register are given on the site. The LDS Account is linked to a person’s Membership Information, so it will recognize their position in the Church and then allow them to place orders for materials either to be billed to the unit or to themselves using a personal debit/credit card. Please note, the information must be correct in MLS for members of the Bishopric, Stake Presidency, or for the Clerk to logon and order items for the unit.

From here, if you are authorized to order materials for your unit, you will then be able to place the order. Once you proceed to the payment section of the order, or Step Four ‘Enter Payment Method’, you will see a drop down box which will give you the option to pay with a credit card or to charge the order to the unit.

Our new web-site is http://www.store.lds.org. Please do not use http://www.ldscatalog.com. E-mail support for LDS Store is help@store.lds.org. Please direct all future orders and correspondences to these addresses. The LDS Catalog e-mail will be closing down shortly. Thank you for your patience.

Thanks for the information. But I need to point out that neither http://www.familysearch.org nor MLS uses LDS Account. new.familysearch.org, does use LDS Account.

Heather,

Thanks for the reminder and helpful information.

I would very much like those in charge of access to the Administrative Materials area to reconsider the current decision to deny access to assistant ward and stake clerks. After all, the Church Handbook of Instructions (on pages 141 and 143 of Book 1 [2006]) explicitly states that an assistant clerk should be handling the ordering of materials from Distribution Services (the ward/stake clerk would take on that task only "if necessary"). Thus there currently is a conflict between official Church policy and the implementation of the access permissions on store.lds.org. This conflict forces many wards and stakes to change the way they order materials. Denying assistant clerks access seems pointless and counterproductive.

If you could pass that suggestion on to the powers that be, I (and many other assistant clerks, and the priesthood leaders they assist) would be grateful.

Alan,

Not sure if Heather is getting your suggestion, as it looks like Heather's e-mail was just forwarded to this thread by jakealex2.

Most likely Heather is not monitoring.

That has already been straightened out via PM -- that's why there is now a note at the top of Jake's post. Originally it was posted in a way that looked completely like it was from Heather.

But thanks for pointing it out, anyway.

Restricted Area not Available

Postby klabacka-p40 » Sun Nov 14, 2010 7:59 pm

I am the ward clerk and cannot access "restricted area". I am listed as ward clerk on website, I can login however cannot access the restricted area. Note: I can order items through ldscatalog.com site with my unit number and login; however, store.lds.org is not recognizing my login as an administrator. Hmmmmm? Any help would be super.

Which website? The Local Unit Website doesn't count for anything. What matters is that you are recorded in MLS with the proper Standard calling and that it's properly reflected at CDOL.

Russell's comment about you being listed as clerk on the ward website not counting for anything is because the callings and leadership areas of the current implementation of the ward websites is a list maintained manually by a member of your ward (clerk, secretary, ward website administrator, bishop, counselor) and is not automatically synced with MLS or any of the other online systems. Also in MLS, your calling must be selected from one of the standard, built-in callings (as opposed to a custom created calling); more information about that can be found here:
