Not with that "calling". She would have to be added to the ward as a out-of-unit person and given a calling.

Create her an out of unit membership, then give her a "standard" calling like ward missionary and she should be able to access the directory, etc.

Does a regular member have access to other unit directories in the stake? We have a senior couple assigned to several units in our stake and are wondering whether to give them a ward or stake calling.

Yes, within limits. They can't seen youth or other minor children.

Still struggling to make this work, I have added our senior missionary couple as out of unit members in one of the wards to which they will be assigned. I gave them each a standard calling in that ward.

They are assigned to several different wards and branches. Right now, they can see the directory in that one ward, but they cannot see anything else in our stake. Shouldn't they be able to see the other units in the stake, just as any other member?

If yes, where do I need to help them look to find the information?

If no, will giving them a stake calling make this work?

I hate the thought of having to add them as out of unit members of multiple wards and branches, but if that is what it takes . . .

Please be aware that full-time missionaries now have access to the LDS.org Directory and Calendars through the proselyting area/Church unit relationships managed in the Internet Mission Office System (IMOS). Each full-time missionary companionship is associated to a proselyting area on the mission's transfer board. The proselyting area is then assigned to serve a specific Church unit (ward/stake or branch/district). The mission president and office manages this information.

This same information also controls what full-time missionaries show up in the "Missionary" section of the LDS.org Directory.

We are aware of that, and just didn't want to wait.

For additional benefit and information, is the mission able to assign full-time missionaries to more than one area? This couple will be serving almost half our stake.

And as a follow up to close out my previous posts, they had entire stake access as out of unit members from the time I gave them a calling. The issue was their not knowing where to look to find it. The email I sent them is very funny when I look back on it:

"To access stake information, do not click on the stake. Click on the ward and select "Stake Information" in the dropdown box.

To return to ward information, do not click on the ward. Click on Stake Information and select the name of the ward from the dropdown box."

Very intuitive, although I do understand why it is the way it is.

Missionaries can only be assigned to one proselyting area in IMOS. [Note: "Proselyting area" is a mission organizational term synonymous with "companionship".]

However, the proselyting area can be assigned to more than one Church unit [ward(s) and branch(es) / stake(s) and district(s)].

He should have his membership record number on his temple recommend. Use that number to search for him and enter him as an out-of-unit member. Then give him the calling.
