Do any of you know if EQ presidents can download MSL? I get the same errors that show the link being dead, but is that because I don't have the right calling?

Right now, the only way to report home teaching is by using MLS on the computer in the clerks office. As an EQP, you will not have access to the download site. But it does not matter, because MLS is not designed to operate on more than one computer for each ward or branch.

The answer to your question is "no". The MLS program is not available at home for anyone (except when running a training database). Remote access to the ward MLS is prohibited by policy.

Currently there are no on-line resources special to EQ Presidents, nor is anything about HT/VT available on-line from the church.

Is there a plan to bring the home teaching / visiting teaching reporting online soon? As a stake clerk I have noticed that this is one area where it is difficult to get accurate reports because computer access is limited to the church building. I am looking forward to the day when this can be done at home. It would be a lot easier for the leaders and clerks to call each other and get it done in a matter of minutes. Please make this a priority so we can keep better records and watch over the lost sheep who aren't getting visited.

This has been one of the most asked for features to bring online. My understanding is it's somewhere on the road map to eventually happen, but I have no idea the time frame.

Rather than taking this thread further off-topic, if people have other questions regarding HT/VT reporting, please post in one of the existing threads covering that topic, such as this one, Adding Home / Visiting Teaching on Lds.org, or you are welcome to start a new discussion.
