Our unit is facing the same issue for Aaronic priesthood quorums and YW classes: the advisors are automatically included in the circles but none of the specialists are.
I’ve looked through LDStools and been unable to find a correlation between how one’s youth specialist calling appears and if it’s included in a class/quorum-specific youth circle.
For example: in our ward some specialist callings are listed in “YW Presidency” in LDStools while others are listed under “Additional YW Assignments.” None are included in the circles. So I surmise maybe a lack of assignment or affiliation with a specific class precluded any off the specialists from being assigned to their class-specific circles?
But no, that hypothesis was debunked...the Aaronic priesthood specialist callings are assigned/listed under a specific quorum in LDStools, yet none of our YM specialists are included in the circles either. So...??
It appears the circles are generated automatically and are based on membership record info. So is it possible a factor could be how our calling data is classified and the data inputted by the unit clerk?
A simple info flow chart/schematics tree created by a tech writer would do wonders to help us untangle this. (Our ward clerk is a great guy—of an older generational and easily flummoxed by technology.)
I’ve sent two pieces of feedback via the app—one addressing specialists needing inclusion in the circles; the other suggesting an FAQ or graphic flowchart determining which callings are included in which circles (to hopefully assist ward clerks in cleaning up how’s assignments and callings are inputted and categorized on their end)
I know, I know, my own ignorance and lack of savvy are showing in how I’ve tried to communicate the problems we’re having
***For those whose specialists ARE included in the circles—what do you suppose made it work for your unit? How are the callings showing up in your LDStools??
