In the words of Andy Rooney, "That bothers me." The Handbook show no such default or preference for assigning a prospective elder. I realize that from a software standpoint you have to do something, but I don't understand the purpose of flagging the record after a choice has been made.
Is there in fact a preference/default that has come down that just hasn't been expressed in the current version of the Handbook?
Our instructions are to assign prospective elders to high priests groups by default. That is consistent with the First Presidency letter I referenced. Flagging the assignment simply serves to indicate the assignment is not the default assignment. They may very well have that non-default assignment for years.

I predict a fair amount of grumbling from HP Groups who find the unassigned keep showing up on their lists when the family in question is assigned to the Elders. Is there a reason it's not following actual class assignments for prospective elders?
MLS did not do any separation of unassigned families based on class assignments. That has been discussed as a possible future enhancement for LCR.
