Along with the YSA ward moves, there are other moves such as different language units or just to move a member into the correct unit, because their current address is outside their current unit's boundaries.
I don't think the default should be to keep the current data (except for cell phones) when a move is initiated in MLS, but it would be nice to have a checkbox to retain the data if desired. This seems better/easier/less confusing than using the boundary realignment feature when the boundaries are not actually being realigned.
greggo, are you and Greggo-p40 one and the same? If so, you made similar comments here a couple of years ago.

One thing that get ignored in all these processes is man hours and how long it take to perform a function, and the use of paper to print off records so the information can be reentered into the member transfer.
I suggested this checkbox idea a couple of years ago in the same thread I linked to above. Hopefully this new discussion of the topic will lead to this feature being included in a future MLS release.
