I am not sure where to find it in MLS but when viewing an individuals record online you can see the prior unit.

Use the member lookup tool in the Leader Portal.

There might be a better way, but if you print "Individual Member Records", it will be listed on there.

From the toolbar: Membership > Print Records > Individual Member Records.

You can also pull up the individual record and click Preview and Yes. A different route to the same thing.

The original post asked how to find out what unit a member moved to, not from. I'm not aware of any way to do that. If you know the address they moved to you can look it up on maps.lds.org. If the record was pulled by another ward it may show the ward on the transaction report that prints after the move but I'm not sure. I don't have one accessible to look at right now.

Oops.

Yeah, I think the transactions reports are going to be the only way - if there is one.

Yes. Look for the transaction report that should have showed up at the time the member's record was transferred.

Well, if they donated in your ward before they moved, you can pull their current address from the tax statement screen. Then, you can cross-reference the address with LDS Maps and find their new ward. Not sure if that's what you're looking for, though, as I can't recall any way to do it solely with MLS.
