Mailing Address vs Residential

Postby boofuss60 » Sun Jul 19, 2015 3:22 pm

How to print out a list with the mailing addresses? We are one of many rural wards wherein many members have separate residential and mailing addresses. Many of our printed list (for obvious reasons such as Relief Society birthday care mailing, etc.) need to show the mailing address, not the residential address. I suppose we could show both if needed. But how to perform this simple task? I just don't see it.

And, I know this is not related, but another extremely simple task...how to search the forum for the exact phrase "mailing address" (i.e. instead of dealing with separate words which is not helpful when one wants an exact phrase). This is probably too simple but the quotes just don't seem to do it.

You can do it from the mailing labels function, but I don't think it's available for most of the reports. Since things are moving to LCR, I doubt any changes will be made to MLS, but hopefully considered for LCR.

Hence the tip in my signature. (With a slight adjustment, it works for the forum as well.)

Actually, the mailing labels function is available more often than not in MLS. See the wiki article Mailing labels for details.

Of course, as has been noted, more and more functions of MLS are moving to LCR, and LCR doesn't seem to have support for mailing labels at this point. But for those lists that are still in MLS, many of them do support the Mailing Labels feature.
