Re: New Date for HT/VT on LCR

We are now beta testers for the LCR 3.0 Beta, and it's exciting to see all the new features! One little hiccup so far: Our High Priest secretary is an Elder. We are not able to assign him as the High Priest secretary in MLS or LCR, because apparently he needs to be a High Priest to hold that position. We created a custom position, but it has no LCR "rights", so he cannot administer the home teaching capabilities in LCR. The High Priest's Group Leader is discussing with the Bishop the idea of making him a High Priest, but in the meantime he has no LCR High Priest access. Any suggestions?

Has he been moved in as a member of the High Priests Group organization?

I want to make sure I am not missing something. In going over the 3.0 release notes, it does state:

"Home and visiting teaching management. Using the Organizations menu, high priests group leadership, elders quorum presidencies, and Relief Society presidencies can now manage home and visiting teaching information for their respective organization. Stake home and visiting teaching reports are also available."

Since I can not find any HT/VT links in the Organizations menu I am assuming this only available in the beta regardless of the release notes? Just to be clear, I am the Ward Clerk so I would think the reports would be available to me.

Thank you

Correct; home and visiting teaching management and reports is only available in Leader and Clerk Resources 3.0. If you're not on the beta, your version is 2.8. You can check the version by scrolling to the very bottom of the Leader and Clerk Resources home page.

That's what Handbook 2: 7.3.3 says. I don't think there's any workaround for that.

What is unclear is if he can serve as an assistant secretary. It appears an assistant need only be a prospective elder. The next question is if an assistant secretary would have the desired rights.

I would start with Handbook 2, 7.3.3. According to the handbook, he should be a high priest if he as serving is the secretary in the high priests group. You could make him an assistant secretary (an assistant secretary can be a prospective elder), but there is an issue right now with that. MLS will accept the calling, but it is not updated when it gets to CDOL. We have submitted a request to have this reviewed, but I don't think there has been a change yet. See this thread for more details.

Short answer: There isn't anything you can do right now except have him ordained a high priest.

Correct. If you are not on the beta, you will not see the features listed in the release notes.
