A ward website administrator does not need to be an assistant ward clerk. The rights a website administrator has for the directory is listed here. The rights a website administrator has for the calendar is listed here. But it appears the first website administrator had other clerk duties to perform and he was therefore appropriately called as an assistant clerk.jhigbee wrote:In my ward membership clerk duties over the past few years, I have done a fair amount of updating of our ward website information. But about 3 years ago, another Assistant Ward Clerk was called with the primary duty of being our ward website administrator. Then last year, another brother was called as another website administrator with the primary duty of updating the ward photos for the photo-directory.
The rights granted a website administrator are sufficient for that particular calling. If the second brother needs the permissions for access to change membership information online then, IMO, he should be called as an assistant clerk - membership since he will be editing membership data and information. The requirements to be called as an assistant clerk are established in the Handbook. Dismissing those requirements and having a member not properly called to perform any of the duties of a clerk or assistant clerk should not be done even if it is for what appears to be a trivial task as editing member addresses, or whatever the other certain functions are that need to be done with assistant clerk rights.jhigbee wrote:But then I noticed last month that someone on our ward MLS system had also entered him as another Assistant Ward Clerk.... I asked our Bishop about this, and he explained that when the brother went to access the website photo features, he was unable to do certain functions with the rights he had been given. So they talked to our Stake technology specialist who told them he would just add a calling for him as an AWC, since that’s what MLS needs to give him the necessary access rights.
