LDS Tools not displaying Out of Unit Callings

#1

Post by Android29 »

I am a stake membership clerk.
We have quite a few members who are in Out of Unit Callings. Typically YSA wards or stakes etc.

On LDS.org these members show the Out of Unit Callings.
However, using LDS Tools, the Out of Unit Callings do not display on the members Callings and Classes tab.

I do not know if this is working as intended or an oversight or a bug.

Any ideas?
Thanks.

Are you an out-of-unit member yourself?
Also, just yesterday a beta went out for LDS Tools (3.2.0) – are you on the beta, and if so, are you seeing the problem there too?

That doesn't supprise me. The call for LDS Tools is get all the callings for this unit (for the stake and all child units) so that would not include the callings outside the stake.

I may have misinterpreted your question. Are you looking at callings under the ward/stake where these leaders are serving, or are you looking at callings from the home ward/stake of these leaders?

No, I am not looking at the callings under the ward/stake where these leaders are serving because I only can see our Stake. I am looking at the Member and Callings & Classes.

I can see how you might consider it a problem, but according to this post by jonesrk, there is no requirement for LDS Tools to show those callings, so those in charge of LDS Tools don't consider it a problem to be fixed.

You're welcome to use the in-app Feedback option to suggest that the LDS Tools requirements in this area might be changed.

I don't know for sure what the requirements are I just know what call they are making to the services to get the data. I believe that they are trying to bring some consistency between what shows in LDS Tools and LCR, so I think providing this as feedback is a good idea.
