Yes, 3.0.1, not 3.1. Sorry. The update for 3.0.2 came through last weekend, but this computer hasn't been updated yet.

This is a new feature. When it was first implemented there was a backlog of information and it was taking up to two weeks for the information to flow from MLS all the way through to CDOL. The time is much better now, but the process is not totally automatic.

Since you are a new stake, and since you are not in North America, it may just be taking a little longer.

However, I am quite certain I didn't create a custom position for my calling when recording it. I was the first stake clerk called in a newly created stake, so I am the only person who could have done it. I am reasonably certain therefore it is recorded properly. Also, when I go to the form to update CDOL positions, it has me preloaded into the form, so MLS obviously recognizes that I am in that calling. It just isn't updating CDOL. Not a big deal, is easy enough to fix. Just curious as everyone else here seems to think it should be working automatically.


Also if you are listed as the Stake Clerk in CDOL you should be able to edit your own contact info.

OK, I used the change in leaders form in mls a week ago, and it hasn't updated. I also found the edit assignment option in CDOL and changed it and saved changes. But it just changes back to the old details on the list with a note saying unpublished changes. How do I get the changes "published"?

This is currently being considered by the development team for a future version of MLS. We are hopeful that we will have this information before the end of the year.

This is a long overdue change for MLS. listing only the household phone number is no longer adequate in a world where families have given up landlines and each member carries their own cellphone. Our ward gets constant requests to update the member phone numbers for home and visiting teaching, only to learn that the number is already in the system but not visible on the reports, which only list the first number.

Someone at Headquarters will publish it, and then your changes will be visible.
