Export Households from LDS Directory

Postby chrishall » Sun Dec 15, 2013 10:43 am

When I go to lds.org Tools->Directory I am no longer seeing the Export Households button on the left of the screen. Is this a bug?

I am a leader in a YSA ward where we have a few people move in and out every week. I have been using this feature to keep abreast of what changes are taking place in the ward and I have been loading the location information into my Garmin to help me find houses when I make visits. I loved this export feature since it allowed me to access this information from home, rather than making a trip to the church to get onto MLS and gather this information and allowed me to serve more effectively.

Thanks,

Chris

Same issue here. I'm a WML.

This is a feature I use regularly get a source for running lookups to get contact info for lists of less actives. Frustrating.

I also miss this option. As the YM president I have used it many times to create maps for fast offering routes and other things. Please bring it back, if not for everyone at least for leaders.

Why are you setting up routes? Routes should be set up with the Bishopric, Deacon Quorum president and the Ward Finance Clerk working together.

I am the Relief Society President and I've always used it. Has it been confirmed that it is NOW calling specific?

I found the export feature in Maps. The only difference is the lat/long in the first two columns. You can download either Ward or Stake information.

As a EQ presidency member of a large and highly transient YSA ward, I use the export households function multiple times per month. Can we get this back?

As Relief Society President, I too use this feature at least once a month, now I see it is gone, yet when searching the topic, instructions are still there on how to do this. Unfortunately, they no longer exist. Is there any chance of getting the feature back? I see on one post to go to directory and maps. Where is that located?
