I had a sister bring me her Samsung phone today asking if I could help her get Member Tools installed. She cannot get past the Sync stage when logging in using the Android App. The error pops us stating the directory services are unavailable. Try again later.
I helped her uninstall and go to the play store to re-intall it a couple of times. Nope. I did a quick once-over on her phone settings, security, etc. comparing hers to mine. Same.
I logged into the Tool on her phone using my account and got in, no issues.
She logged into the Tool on my phone and failed.
Interesting that an observation made earlier in this thread about once having special access due to callings also applies here. She was in the ward relief society presidency until recently.

I am looking for some solid suggestions from this group or elsewhere to help her resolve this problem. This would appear to be an issue that requires someone with elevated admin authority to fix.
Is there a pathway to escalate issues such as this to, say, the developers/engineers of the app, or an account admin who can toggle/reset something on her account?
Thanks.
And thank you to those responsible for these forums. They usually help me find the answers to problems such as this one.

Since you said she was released, something you might want to try is to delete all the data from the app. I'm not sure if uninstall clears that out. I'm wondering of the app gets confused when the data coming down no longer updates leadership tables that are in the device's storage or cache. I could see that as a bug that flies below the testing radar.

As for reporting it, I'd use the in-app "contact us". That goes to the right people with some data to help them troubleshoot. I would mention the issue about how the problem seems to follow an individual's calling.

Same problem here. Uninstalled and reinstalled twice still can't access.

I have a Samsung Galaxy S7 phone and I was having the same problem and an uninstall and reinstall seemed to resolve the issue.

I have the T-Mobile Revvl. Uninstalling and reinstalling the app allowed me to sync.
