How do I change my family photo in the directory

Postby supermaughan » Mon Jul 29, 2019 9:43 pm

I cannot figure out how to update my Household photo using the ward directory from a computer. The option to select my household that was in previous versions seems to be gone. I know how to do it in the Android app but my photos are on my computer and I do not want to transfer them to the phone.

  • Log onto ChurchofJesusChrist.org;
  • Select Ward Directory and Map;
  • Select household name;
  • Click the edit icon (pencil in blue circle) in the lower right of the household name pane;
  • Select the Photo tab;
  • Click the Change Photo button;
  • You can now either drop the file of the new photo on the frame or select the Choose a Photo on Your Device button to select the file.
Note the photo will not be available for others to view until it is approved by an administrator (bishopric member, ward clerk, assist ward clerk, membership clerk). Only household members 18 years old or older will be able to make the change.

"Edit with a pencil and circle" is not an option anymore. Only the word EDIT in UR corner. That leads to: Household Add Phone and Email. Visibility is Stake. Nothing else is there.

I just checked and all is I previously posted. I am using the Firefox, Chrome, and Edge browsers. It is the same for those three.
What browser are you using? Have you tried the incognito mode or private mode in your browser to eliminate old cookie issues? Stale cookies for the website have been known to cause problems.

The description you provided sounds more like what you would find in the mobile app, Member Tools. Are you certain you are working with the online, web based application, Ward Directory and Map?
