Patriarchal Blessing Clerk Action Required Notification

Postby daron » Fri May 19, 2017 12:04 pm

I got this email from the church on a no-reply email:

Dear Ward Clerk Baird, Daron,

This is an automated message from the Patriarchal Blessing Submission System. The blessing for "Member Name" requires membership updates to be applied to MLS.

This is the second one of these I've gotten. Their record seems to be up to date. I also check to make sure MLS had the latest updates. Any hints to what is causing this?

Thanks for any hints where to look.

Daron Baird
Lexington Park Ward Clerk.

I'll take a wild guess that they need an individual email address.

Their email is there and is correct.

I'd either send a special request via MLS, or call Local Unit Support.

As a ward clerk, I had the same email message stating that the member "requires membership updates to be applied to MLS".

I called the clerk hotline and the tech also was not able to understand why the bishop wasn't able to submit if the member information was correct from what we could see. He suggested to go through the Membership Audit exercise hoping that the discrepancy would be noted on the report. The report did not but I asked my bishop to request/submit the Patriarchal Blessing Submission again and it worked!

... I wonder if the system automatically sends that message if it appears that the membership info is out of date (the member requesting the blessing was elderly and was/is a Deacon... Hope this helps.
