Talk:LDS Maps 3 help
Split into multiple pages?
This has become a very long article. Because of the length alone, I would recommend dividing it into multiple articles, but I think there are even stronger justifications. One of the biggest reasons for dividing it is to separate the member content from the leader content. Many of the people coming to this page for help will be regular members. They don't need to see the help for ward and stake leaders. I think it would be a much better user experience to split this up and add a navigation sidebar, as has been done for the other LDS.org apps. -- Aebrown 17:32, 21 May 2012 (UTC)
- I agree on all counts. I have kept it as one article to complete the update for the latest version of LDS Maps. After reviews, I will divide it into multiple articles as you have outlines. -- Tullisda 17:37, 21 May 2012 (UTC)
Why is this called "LDS Maps 3"? There is nothing in the application that I can find that mentions a version number. No member or clerk that I know of thinks of this new version as version "3". I know we have an existing LDS Maps help/en page, but that could be renamed to have a title that reflects that it refers to the old app. Or it could be deleted entirely (is there a plan to keep the old maps application in service?). I know that the new maps app's help button links to this page, so I understand that it's not simply a matter of moving the page (although a redirect would be created and that would work fine). -- Aebrown 17:32, 21 May 2012 (UTC)
Why is this still listed as "Draft" status? And why is it on the wiki but with a notice saying "Please do not edit or delete this file"? If we're going to put things on the wiki, let's allow the pages to benefit from the value the community can add. Personally, I tend to ignore such warnings if I know that something absolutely has to be fixed. -- Aebrown 17:32, 21 May 2012 (UTC)
Overview for ward clerks and other leaders
The information in this section states that LDS Maps provides features for ward leaders. The words "ward leaders" is linked to a section that lists certain callings as ward leaders. That list is not correct for this application. It is not correct in that all the callings listed for ward leaders do not have access to the features listed in this section. I am a ward assistant clerk (finance). I do not have access to any ward leader features of LDS Maps. I am properly listed in MLS for this calling and have been so for 15 months. Why list leaders as having these capabilities before they are granted those capabilities. This only adds confusion or causes users to believe there is a bug in the system. Since I am not permitted to edit this article I find not being able to do so contrary to the purpose of a wiki article. Jdlessley 05:15, 24 May 2012 (UTC)
- It appears that the inclusion of financial clerks in the list of leaders with Maps capabilities was an error. The documentation has been corrected to exclude financial clerks. -- Aebrown 15:48, 24 May 2012 (UTC)
- Thanks to Jdlessley for finding the error. The programmers didn't inform me that the access rights for the financial clerk had been removed. -- Tullisda 16:32, 24 May 2012 (UTC)
- The list of leaders in the "Help for ward leaders" section still lists Assistant clerk (finance)as having authorization to maintain and update household names and addresses -- Jdlessley 12:01, 11 June 2012 (MDT)

There are no "check boxes" next to the names in the listing. Consequently, further filtering and printing does not work. How do I even know that I'm working in Maps 3?
