No Ministering Secretary Listed as a Calling

Postby cledwards » Thu Aug 09, 2018 8:24 pm

I do not see an option to call a brother as a ministering secretary, only the option for Elders Quorum Assistant Secretary. The brother that I have in that role cannot see the ministering interview reports that are now available (as of August 1). Is there a reason why I, as the EQ President, cannot assign him as a ministering secretary so that he has access to said reports?
Thanks!
Cody

Thank-you ... that helped to know that I was looking in the wrong place. However, when I go to assign the brother to the ministering secretary calling, I get an error message (see attached screen shot). Thanks again for the help.

It looks like a temporary error. But if it's still happening on Monday you may need to call the Global Service Center and have them take a look.

You might try having the ward clerk put him in the calling. I think errors like that can happen when the backend enforces a different set of rules than what the front end allows.

I wondered about that as well. I am the ward clerk but don't know what callings an EQ president can enter.

That should be well within his rights. You might ask him to try.

Is he an elder or a high priest? Or a prospective elder? Is he an out-of-unit member? Those might be factors.

I think there's a "flag" on his record or something like that. The bishop said that he will be able to take a look at it. Hopefully that takes care of it! :)

If there is indeed a "flag" there's a good chance the answer will be to find another calling for him.
