Out-of-unit callings and members without callings

Postby tylerlybb » Sun Jun 25, 2017 11:54 am

A brother in my ward is serving in the bishopric of a student ward nearby, but his name still shows up on the Members Without Callings report. What is the right way to fix this?

Thank you,
Tyler

You could give him a calling in your ward. I think even a custom calling would work.

That would work, but I thought that with LCR, the out-of-unit calling info flowed back to the home unit. Or, perhaps I'm just thinking of stake callings. (A common problem in the pre-LCR days.)

I thought so, too. Or maybe I dreamed I read it in a future LCR Release Notes page.

I just checked on a member in our stake that is serving in a YSA Stake. He correctly does not show on the members without callings list. I would start by going to that brother's member profile page in LCR and make sure that Callings/Classes tab lists the out of unit calling.

Okay, I know the problem now. On lds.org LCR the Members Without Callings report correctly does not display names of members who hold out-of-unit callings. However, the same report accessed through the LDS Tools app (at least the Android version) incorrectly shows those names.

How do I report this problem?

The best way is to use the feedback link in the app. Look under Help / Contact Us.
