Someone indicated on FHCNET that the problem seems to be either with the software or hardware used at the temple as part of the NFS system. No date was indicated for resolution, that is why the delays according to the poster.

Whatever the problem is, it remains unknown as to what it exactly is, or if it is just one problem or several.

Once they find the issue, Las Vegas and the others should eventually be able to go live, in the past, delays have only been less than a month based on prior reports of delays.

Houston is also apparently delayed. I had heard it was coming but no official word but I tried to sign on tonight anyway and was unable to. Hopefully it will be soon.

Is evaluation email an indication?

Postby rmrichesjr » Thu Mar 06, 2008 4:16 pm

Is receipt of an email message about evaluating nFS an indication that one's temple district is going to be getting nFS soon? I'm in the Portland Oregon temple district. The only indication we have about nFS is our stake president recently said he wants FH consultants trained (on the old methods) by May 1.

Then, today I got email from Church HQ "reminding" me that I had supposedly signed up to evaluate the nFS user experience. While I did participate in the nFS beta test in the first half of 2007, I don't recall having signed up for anything since then, and I don't have nFS access (that I'm aware of).

Might this be an indication that nFS is coming to my temple district soon?

This is just a bulk mailing, I got one just like it. It has nothing to do with Temples coming onto nFS.

Check out this blog site. Also when your Temple District is about to go on line you will get an email from support that reads.

[INDENT]To: Priesthood leaders, family history center directors and family[/INDENT]

[INDENT]history consultants in the ___________ temple district.[/INDENT]


[INDENT]Beginning [go-live date], the new process for printing temple name cards using Family Ordinance Requests will be used in the ___________ Temple. New FamilySearch will be available to the general membership of the Church who live in the ___________ temple district early in the morning on the previous [3 days before?]. No additional notice will be sent to priesthood leaders or members of the Church in the __________ temple district concerning these dates.[/INDENT]


[INDENT]We ask that family history consultants and center directors encourage members who have existing TempleReady disks to take them to the temple and have their temple name cards printed before [go-live date]. Beginning immediately, please do not create any new TempleReady disks in your family history centers for processing at the ___________ temple.[/INDENT]


[INDENT]If you have not done so already, please complete the new FamilySearch online training prior to [go-live date] in preparation for helping members to use new FamilySearch as part of the new process for preparing ancestral names for the temple. Please contact FamilySearch Support by e-mail or phone if you have any questions or problems.[/INDENT]


[INDENT]Thank you for your support of temple and family history work.[/INDENT]

[INDENT]Sincerely,[/INDENT]

[INDENT]FamilySearch Support[/INDENT]

That's true if you've registered as a "Priesthood leader, family history center director or family history consultant" with familysearch. (And yes, Stake Technology Specialists are included - whoo hoo!)

Lubbock is also delayed. We have all the equipment and some of us in the temple have access to NFS. I heard that we may go live in May. We'll see.

I was wrong. Lubbock IS delayed, but we are delayed "until further notice." I learned on Friday (after I posted the message above) that the problem is a server issue. The Church had contracted with one company to provide server space for all of the temples, and after the company learned that because the temples are all over the world it meant that the information would have to be accessable 24 hours a day, they said they couldn't provide that much space. Now they are trying to contract with a second, possibly a third company to provide the additional server space needed.

Bismarck Temple Live

Just got back from the Bismarck ND temple. They are using nFS. Ordinances performed were online before I got home from the Temple.:)

The San Antonio Texas Temple went live in January 2008. The Dallas Texas Temple had training for leaders and Family History Consultants on March 29th and will go live "soon". The date has not yet been announced (I believe due to the previously mentioned server capability delay), but the temple is capable of taking the nFS barcoded ordinance requests and processing them into ordinance cards. They still primarily accept the old TempleReady diskettes.

The challenge for our members is that many of them are processing ordinance requests, then traveling to areas to do the work with family members who live in temple districts that are not yet on nFS, and are not able to get the cards converted. We have cautioned them to have the ordinance cards printed first locally, and then travel with the ordinance cards, not the barcoded ordinance request paper.
