That's certainly true in my stake. Everyone looks to me to provide training, but I'm not much help in the Leaders area, since I can't see it.
I understand the desire to keep confidential matters confidential, but I have total access to MLS and can see anything I want to. So hiding the Leaders section from me really doesn't provide any security in my case, although I do understand that not all assistant clerks would have full MLS permissions as I do.
I know that there are some highly confidential areas in the Leaders section, but much of what is there is garden-variety clerk stuff, such as looking up members, seeing reports of prospective elders, etc. It seems like assistant clerks should be able to get into the Leaders area, but then not be able to see certain areas within that section. But locking out assistant clerks entirely does make it tough for us to help leaders with training and support.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.
