If your issue is truly the same as reported by the OP in this thread then you should find the callings in the LDS.org Directory. They just may not be where you would expect to find them. But if those new callings do not show in the Directory at all after doing a send/receive and waiting a few minutes then you have a different issue.

How long has it been since you made the changes in MLS and did a send/receive? Have you checked CDOL to see if they are listed there? If they are not in CDOL, then try another send/receive. After waiting some time and the changes do not appear in CDOL then make a change, such as the set apart flag, save, set it back to what it was, and do another send/receive.

Primary classes in Leadership section

Postby Graham1 » Wed Nov 28, 2012 9:16 am

I have triple checked both CDOL and MLS (3.5) to ensure the callings are correctly entered. How ever on the directory in lds.org, ALL the primary classes so up under the leadership section

That will be fixed today or tomorrow. We are currently running a clean up job in the database for each unit. When it gets to your unit it will fix this.

The clean up job should get things back in sync better now that most people are on MLS 3.5. The things it is doing are:
1) Moving positions to the correct organization (e.g. Elders Quorum President to the Elders Quorum Presidency)
2) Moving and organizations to their correct parent/child location (e.g. Primary classes under the Primary)
3) Remove any duplicate organizations that aren't allowed more than one (e.g. remove a second Bishopric)
4) Fix the top level organization information stored with the position (this cleans up how they show in the directory)

The hope is that with this cleanup and MLS 3.5.1 refreshing its positions from CDOL things will be in sync and start working more smoothly.

LDS.org has double and sometimes trippled the same calling/entry.

Postby woody55 » Thu Nov 29, 2012 3:16 pm

I am the Stake Clerk. Some of our wards have mentioned a problem with a calling having a double entry. One of our ward relief society has this problem now. I have been on the ward callings list and tried to remove the double entries. Yes, they are in a Stared calling position. I deleted all of the ward relief society. It did not remove the callings from LDS.org. MLS showed no positions in the ward Relief society after send and receive. LDS.org after a time period showed the president listed 1x, first counselor listed 2x, and second counselor listed 1x. The next day I added the relief society presidency back in MLS, did a send/receive. Now MLS is correct, but now LDS.org shows; President listed 2x, 1st Counselor listed 3x, and 2nd Counselor listed 2x. Also, I see today LDS.org has an additional sister entered as a second Counselor which is in error also. How do we get these callings off of LDS.org and callings to match MLS?

First, make sure your units are on MLS 3.5. Then follow the instructions for Correcting duplicate or missing callings.

Due to a bug in MLS 3.5 not showing all the duplicates, you might have to remove the presidency in MLS, do the send/receive, request a unit data refresh. After that comes down you should be able to see some more of the duplicates. Repeat this until all the incorrect callings are gone. Then you can put back in the correct ones.

Is a fix for this bug in the pipeline?

I've seen mention of 3.5.1, but don't know the rollout status.

The MLS Release Notification page says it will be out in December and is currently being beta tested. Of course, it doesn't say if this particular bug is in there but I would think it would be.

I would hope that the bug is not in there, but that the fix is. :)
