Quarterly Report not showing ward name

Postby steves84010 » Sat Mar 09, 2019 9:51 pm

Stake Clerk question:
The Stake Quarterly Report on LCR used to show each ward name, now it is showing a four character abbreviation, e.g., SU13 instead of ABC Ward.
I understand the Finance Clerk recently had to reset something in MLS while working with HQ; perhaps that caused the change?
Is there someplace in MLS where a "ward name alias" can be entered in place of this four character abbreviation, that would then cause the LCR Quarterly Report to show the full ward name?
(Sorry, I'm much more familiar with LCR than MLS.)

The ward abbreviation used to be entered in MLS, so some kind of reset from there might have reset the values shown in LCR. You can enter the values in LCR now. If you go to Other | Unit Settings. You will see a list of all the wards and branches in your stake, the current abbreviation and a pencil icon that will let you edit them.
