Discussions about the Directory Tool on lds.org. Questions about the Directory on the classic site should be posted in the LUWS forum.

Does anyone know why this is the case?


With the EU privacy laws, the default for those countries is for members information to be private unless marked as public by the member. So until the rest of your ward gets on and allows themselves to be seen your list will be quite short.

That make sense for the membership directory (although this must have recently been applied as I could see the whole stake a few weeks ago)

If the EU privacy laws is a consideration how come I can see the member contact details on the new LDS Maps tool at https://new.lds.org/maps for the Stake.

Another example is that I can not see contact details for Ward Leaders and organisations but I can see contact details for Stake Leaders and organisations, e.g Stake High Council , Stake Relief Society Presidency etc.

Is this due to my access rights?

That is a different team. I'm guessing that they haven't gotten that requirement or coded it.

It might be due to access rights or deciding that some leadership positions are allowed.

I'm not an expert on the EU privacy laws, I just heard some of the directory team talking about the changes they had made for the EU.
