The Handbook is available at LDS.org if you are in the bishopric or ward clerk.

When I click "Edit Profile" I can see the thumbnail of the picture. However, when I go back to the normal Directory view I don't see the new picture that I just upl...

Wow! Now that's a work-around. thanks for sharing. I think the directory now does print in Black and Gray automatically. I still wish, for clarity when reproduced, it printed in all black text. I came up with the work-around because we also print to a black and white laser printer and the address a...

If I assign the photo to just the member, the photo does not appear in the directory. A single person is "Head of Household". So just add the photo as the Household photo, once added the default is for the Household photos to show up in the photo directory unless a member opts out. Even though the ...

How can the ward website administrators edit the callings? "Administrators" aren't really used with lds.org. That was a way of maintaining the old ward websites on lds.org. Callings can't be updated via lds.org, I think it will be added in the future and then it would be for the Ward Clerk, etc to ...

Thank You! We had decided not to use it for distribution as our phone list UNTIL the preferred name option was available, as people wanted their preferred name listed, and kept asking me as ward clerk why their record continually showed their full name. (Of course, it does seem to be printing incor...

Our ward also had a problem with a baptism not being recorded properly (we could find no record of the baptism and the individual was not in MLS as a member.). I contacted Local Unit Support via MLS, and the reply was to locate two Melchezidek Preisthood holders who witnessed the baptism/confirmatio...

We have on occasion also had this problem. We had a member who was going through some disiciplinary matters that moved on us without telling us where they were moving. The only thing we could think to do when his records left was to request them back and see what the "previous ward" was, flag the r...

Flag membership record to contact previous bishop

A question came up on how to flag membership records to contact previous bishop. We are familiar on how to do it when we push records out but needed to be able to do this on a few records that might be pulled. I searched the MLS wiki and could not find anything.
