Adding Non member spouse information in LCR

Postby ckbr00ks » Sat Jun 25, 2016 9:21 pm

Having difficulty updating a member's non-member spouse info from home using LCR. Is this even possible within the capabilities of current software? Assuming it's fairly straightforward from MLS. Using LCR, software only offers addition of members to a household, so I can't even get to where I might add a NM spouse.

To even get the new last name, I had to select the option for legal name change (which it is), since guidance chosen for option for new marriage told me to add the marriage and the software would automatically add the new last name. Except -- no where I could find using LCR to add the marriage to a non member!!!

Help, please.

Thank you.

This function is still only available in MLS at the moment.

Yes, marriages are now recorded in LCR. Find the member's profile (using the search box or the Member List), click on the Family tab and then click on the Add Marriage link.

I have an interesting twist to this. I have a member whose husband was baptized in 2015. But unfortunately when this was all recorded the wife shows up as 'other' in the household. Their children all link correctly, but it won't register them as husband and wife. I've tried splitting and combining the households. I've tried updating all the names with middle names but that didn't seem to help. In the descriptions it lists them as non member spouses, even though they both have baptismal dates. Help? :)

Call Local Unit Support on Monday. They're not properly linked to each other. As a result, when you put the wife into his household, she doesn't match up and gets classified as "other"

You can't fix this from your end without ending up with a false divorce and remarriage.

Yet another example demonstrating the need for the ward clerk to review the convert baptism paperwork prepared by the missionaries before it goes to the mission office for data entry. I suspect all the relationships in this case would have been entered correctly if all information, including MRNs, had been entered correctly on the form.
As Russell said, Local Unit Support can fix all that.
