Re: Custom Reports on LCR vs MLS

CDOL only shows bishopric members, correct? I don't see, for example, our high priests group leader there, except as someone who used to be the executive secretary. Never mind, the UI was just hard to figure out. I eventually found a link that shows other people. I couldn't search for the relief so...

Re: Custom Reports on LCR vs MLS

There's limited support for that in CDOL. You can look up the person by their current calling and click on "Position Summery". However, I don't think the history goes back all that far. A quick look suggests maybe a little more than 5 years. And that might be deceptive - it may only recor...

Re: Custom Reports on LCR vs MLS

Is there a report in either program that will show you the past callings a member has held? I wish there was, but I've never seen it. It is something a ward clerk is supposed to track, but there aren't any tools to do it with unless you copy data somewhere outside of those two systems- OR if you us...

Re: Custom Reports on LCR vs MLS

Do you see how the MLS bug is related to the discussion? Part of this discussion was about MLS and taking away functionality there and moving it to LCR, which is why the bug happened. So my point of talking about the bug in MLS on this post is to point out that we will be losing functionality if cus...

Re: Custom Reports on LCR vs MLS

You are partially right that the issue I am having is somewhat unrelated to custom reports on LCR, but not entirely. If there are going to be bugs in MLS that happen, then that makes me want all functionality to be ported to LCR, which is what this topic is about. That's what drove me here and made ...

Re: Custom Reports on LCR vs MLS

Related directly to this post, I would love for the custom reports to all be moved online to LCR so I can run and input data from home rather than from only the church building. (It would be ideal if the user defined data could be exported or synced so that it is in LCR.) Currently, my custom report...

Ward Assistant Executive Secretary

I'm a Ward Executive Secretary, and I have access to the tools that I ought to have on LDS.org. Our ward also has an Ward Assistant Executive Secretary, but that isn't a defined role for the permissions on the site. That means that my assistant ends up not getting the access he needs online, althoug...

See this post related to indexing one field at a time, and how it could really open up the number of users indexing:

Indexing one word at a time can mean more possibilities and many more people indexing

If the words can be indexed one at a time, we can open up indexing to many other possibilities than just mobile apps. For better indexing accuracy, each word could be requested multiple times from different people so that only words that were transcribed the same way a few times would be considered ...
