However if you don't have the address than it won't move until you go down checklist. Even than may not get records out. Calling someone and requesting records makes job a lot easier, As is changing address and number of people that move within ward boundaries. Moving people out should happen soon I think.
I doubt we will ever be able to record events from home. Maybe can edit things like households.
In my comments, I was referring to a move where the clerk has the new address and also selects the ward to put the records into. If one does that, the record will move into the stated ward regardless of whether or not the address is actually within that ward's boundaries.
If one is trying to move a record without an actual address, we are talking about an entirely different subject. That said, we had cases where the sending clerk put our city in the street address field (along with the city and state in their fields) to force the record into our ward, though I could never figure out what sense that made. Since there was no phone number and no street address, there was no way for us to find them if they never came to church (and they never did).
