I ask because our stake website administrator was listed in MLS using the standard positions as stake website administrator yet he was not listed in CDOL and therefore was not included in the list of default approvers for the stake.
Nobody has yet checked. I'm pretty sure I'm not in there though. My bishopric has asked me to hold the position of backup ward website administrator, but it's just because they know I know what's going on (thanks tech.lds.org) and want me to always be there to support the 'official' ward website administrator while still having me fulfill other callings. So I'm uniquely assigned by the bishopric with Ward administrator privileges, but not as a ward clerk or in MLS as anything to have to do with the calling as far as I know. I was guessing that the disparity between the LUWS callings list and the callings represented in MLS would eventually be resolved by returning to MLS dominance, so I'm not at all surprised by this move, but it does make it a little more difficult for me to stay an expert on what is happening without the bishopric directing that I get marked in the right place in MLS so that I can inherit those admin abilities. I do believe it's the proper way to do it though.
I am curious if the beta directory issues I'm seeing aren't being seen by anyone else here because they have the privileges which I lack. I would guess that the vast majority of the lurkers here are officially in positions where they would have the needed permissions, so if that truly is part of the problem, then I am in a unique position to see it.
Thanks all for the clarification on the need to be designated properly in MLS
. Even though it made sense to me, the docs simply state that people in those positions get the proper permissions, not that those callings as specified in MLS
get those permissions. I simply wanted to clarify the source, since my permissions come exclusively from the fact that I am a LUWS admin, and nowhere else is that specified.
