how to modify member profile-add family members

Postby joelbrooksby » Fri May 08, 2015 3:58 pm

hey everyone,I have 4 individual records that need to be in the same family group. They're not in the same household but they are the same family. How do I update the member profile or the records to reflect that?

You can't. The only grouping supported is "household".

The individual records should reflect any parent/child and spouse relationships between them. But that will not "group" them for any reports I can think of.

In LDS Tools there are three sort options: Individual, Household, and Family. I can't test in my ward, since I'm in a YSA ward and everyone's an individual household/family, but when you sort by Family in LDS Tools are people grouped correctly?
