Old & New Bishop listed as president of priest's quorum

Postby Johnwt » Tue Oct 28, 2014 1:12 pm

We recently had a change of bishopric. In our ward MLS the new bishop was correctly & automatically made president of the priest's quorum. However, in LDS Tools, both the old bishop and new bishop are listed as the president of the priest's quorum with two separate entry's (listings/instances). A simple send/receive does not correct this. Since it is correct in our ward MLS, I can find no way to remove the recently released bishop from LDS Tools. Do you think a "unit refresh date" would solve this? Please help. Thank You.

With an asterisk.

We had a discussion today about the issue that is causing this. It turns out there are some things related to how CDOL handles the updates for a bishop that are involved in this.

If the new bishop is visible in CDOL, a unit refresh followed by another send/receive (to transmit the updates once MLS processes the refresh) should fix this. If the new bishop isn't visible in CDOL, wait until the change is visible in CDOL before requesting the refresh.

For a total of 3 send/receives, right? (One to send the refresh request, one later to download the data, and the third to send the updates back to CDOL.)

Correct. The first one will need some time for the refresh request to process on the CDOL side. The second and third can be done one right after the other.
