Membership updates to be applied to MLS - Email Notifications

I have been receiving email notifications for Patriarchal Blessings for Clerk Action Required. The message states "This is an automated message from the Patriarchal Blessing Submission System. The blessing for XYZ requires membership updates to be applied to MLS." Do we have to do anything or just need to log into MLS for these changes to be applied and updated?

I received the same email message today and do not see anything in the record of the member that would warrant that something needs to be updated. The only difference from other records is that it is a member with children that is single. I haven't seen anything to help point to where the update would be needed.

I've been ignoring these emails but just to be safe, I'll log into MLS to make sure it gets updated if that is what the email is requesting. I'm not even sure where these emails are coming from or how it gets generated if someone else knows.

I have also received several of these. MLS doesn't have any to-do's and no links on the email. Tech support, do we need to do anything with these?

Well, you will have to ask tech support that question. This is a user-to-user forum where we share suggestions based on experiences gleaned from serving in various callings.

That said, this post explains exactly what is happening and should answer all of your questions. It comes from a person who did some research on the question and then shared his answer with the Forum.
