Moving Record

Postby wrigjef » Sun Aug 02, 2015 4:47 pm

I just moved a record out of our Ward to a known forwarding address. This was the first time I've done this in my new calling as membership assistant clerk. I was surprised to see that after I entered in the new address and changed screens, there was another step requiring me to enter in the receiving unit. I had to look that up on the meetinghouse finder. I would have thought that the system would have known what unit to forward the records to based on the new address.

From what I've ever seen the list of units includes the normal ward as the first option and then other specialty units (YSA, language, etc) that cover the same area.

If it presented more than one general ward then it probably wasn't able to geocode the address exactly and couldn't identify a specific location for it. But that isn't the norm. Usually it will only present the wards that are valid for that location.

At least in my country, it doesn't present any wards for the location. One needs to always specify the ward himself.
