Duplicated callings

Postby rodrigues.lds » Tue Sep 17, 2013 5:44 am

Dear friends,

We have set a calling to a brother in our Stake MLS, however, when accessing the lds.org/callings directory or the LDS Tools (mobile/tablet), the brother appears twice with his calling. When removing him from the MLS Stake calling, he still remains in the the LDS.org calling directory or LDS tools (mobile/tablet). Does anyone know how we have to proceede?

Follow the steps for Correcting duplicate or missing callings. Basically remove him from MLS, request a unit data refresh, once that comes back down you should be able to see the extra one.

Note: you may want to print a list of callings beforehand.

Our ward has a few "stuck" callings as well, but our ward clerk has resisted requesting a unit refresh, for the reason that we have a very large ward and he's afraid he will need to spend a lot of time rebuilding a lot of things.

My questions is, what areas of MLS are affected by a unit data refresh and what type of cleanup work can be expected?

I know it at least pulls down membership information (not sure how broad that is) and all the calling/organization information.

As far as the cleanup work, it is only where what MLS has different than CHQ. If the callings/organizations match up with what is in CDOL then it shouldn't do much.

As a note, on the membership side of things a refresh is pushed down once a quarter anyway, so the main area of possible differences should just be the CDOL side.
