LDS Tools not showing address

Postby jrmuir » Thu Mar 03, 2016 12:34 pm

I have checked all my account settings and my address is on the ward directory but it is not showing in LDS Tools. How do I get my address to show? Thanks.
It shows if I login to LDS Tools, I have the latest version and my security settings are not restricting anything as far as I know.

When you say LDS Tools, whose login is being used to sync it? Yours? Or is this is a device that belongs to someone else and they're not able to see it. (Silly question, have they done a sync since any changes in permissions?)

It is just my account and it syncs to my personal account on my phone. If i login, i can see my info but no one else can see my address.

If you can see your address but other people can't, then it is almost certainly because your address is marked as "Private - Leadership Only". Change the visibility on your address to "Ward" or "Stake" and then other people in your ward or stake will be able to see it.

You can change the visibility of your address by using the Edit option, either from the Directory on LDS.org, or from the LDS Tools mobile app.

I have logged into my lds account and it shows that visibility is Stake already and it has been that way for a long time. I know, very strange.

You might want to toggle your privacy setting to something else, exit and then come back and change it. Just a guess.

if that doesn't do it, what is my next step, is there a phone number to call tech support or something?

The visibility setting in lds account appears to just be for the email address. If the problem is you address then you will need to change the visibility setting in lds.org directory

So yes it is just my address. I logged into my lds.org account and my Contact settings is set to Stake visibility. I didn't see another place to change any other setting. Thanks for your help.
