That is correct.

I do believe that there is a calling entitled Home Teaching District Supervisor which I thought was a standard calling. Would this calling have access?

Home Teaching does not this calling as standard, only VT

That is strange. LCR does not show the Home Teaching District Supervisor as a custom calling.

Interesting, that's pretty new, you're right it is a standard calling. Pretty sure it'll have the access needed

I think it would be safe to say that if the calling has "home teaching" or "visit teaching" in the name AND it's a standard calling, it will have some kind of access.

Is there a way to self-enroll in the LCR 3.0 beta? I'm in contact with a stake clerk in Utah who was able to get enrolled via a contact in his ward or nearby. My stake really wants to participate, and I'd like to know if beta participation requires a golden ticket (special invite) or if we can simply sign ourselves up, somewhere.

We want to "climb aboard," before the April 23 beta train leaves the station!

NOTE: Although this page (https://www.lds.org/help/support/about-clerk-resources?lang=eng) supposedly points to a set of instructions for enrolling in the LCR beta test group (https://www.lds.org/help/support/applications/leader-resources-beta-test-group?lang=eng), the referenced page is sadly NULL. :(

Technically, his stake is in the alpha. If he was added via a contact in his ward, that contact is a Church employee who works on the development team. Those are the only stakes on LCR 3.0 at this time.

There is not a way to self-enroll in the LCR 3.0 beta.

This is great. I was already a bit worried because the release notes don't say it:
Home and visiting teaching management. Using the Organizations menu, high priests group leadership, elders quorum presidencies, and Relief Society presidencies can now manage home and visiting teaching information for their respective organization.

If VT coordinator doesn't get access to the LCR, her calling becomes almost unnecessary.

When the release notes were written, we were still waiting for final direction on how access for visiting teaching coordinators and district supervisors should be implemented. That has been completed and is in the first beta.
