Relief Society Asst Secretary

Postby showseason » Thu Jun 22, 2017 7:56 pm

Does the asst secretary have the same access to LDS Tools as the secretary? She can't access those functions at this time. Has synced phone. Std calling, not custom.

In LCR, you should see an Access Table. I think it's under "Other" in the toolbar. That should answer the question.

It just says Relief Society Presidency. It doesn't indicate whether the Assistant Secretary is included.

Has she waited 24 hours since her calling was properly recorded?

As an STS I no longer have access to the current Access Table (which was extremely helpful in addressing issues - so now I'll be directing all those calls to the global service desk, just fyi...) But I don't recall an assistant RS Secretary role, and it isn't in the latest Access Table located in the https://clerksupport.lds.org documentation, though that table was updated on March 2016 and is more than a year old so maybe they did add an Assistant Secretary Role (I doubt it, personally)

When wards/stakes choose to do something outside the access table, they need to ensure they take their own responsibility to provide the information to those they call so as not to hamper their ability to complete tasks assigned to them.

"Assistant Relief Society Secretary" is listed in the Handbook, so they're not making this up. But the total description is "An assistant secretary may be called to help the secretary with her responsibilities."

If some tasks are not able to be delegated, that needs to be spelled out. As such, it sounds like there's a disconnect between the Handbook's current verbiage and the business rules that were implemented.

Relief Society Assistant Secretary is a standard calling for LCR.

Isn't the question whether that 'standard' calling has access. I don't have access to the current Access Table anymore, can someone check it?

According to post #3, it only says "Relief Society Presidency". There's no indication of if that includes the assistant secretary or not.
