Church Service Missionaries in MLS

Postby mlh78 » Tue Jul 23, 2013 7:48 am

I have been instructed to have the ward clerks in my stake input church service missionaries serving from their ward into MLS. I think the idea is that MLS will then sync up with the new church service missionary application and allow the stake president to manage these assignments through the application. Problem is, I cannot find a standard position in MLS for these missionaries. I don't think full time missionary or ward missionary are appropriate selections. Any thoughts?

You'll need to do something custom until the application is fully implemented.

I would use Full Time Missionary.

Are you suggesting that the church service missionary application and MLS are not yet integrated? This seems to be counter to the instruction which we received.

The only service missionary position type that I see in CDOL that would come down to MLS is Stake Recreation Camp Service Missionary and one for Districts. I don't know if those position types are tied into the church service missionary application or not.

Thanks Ryan. It looks like we were fed some misinformation on how to get church service missionaries into the CSM system.
