I heard from the missionaries that the ward mission leaders now have access to the mission area book for their area. I have been been asking for this for a while Can anyone confirm or deny? I have looked through my reports as ward mission leader and cannot see it.

I'm trying to figure out how to help our ward's mission leader to get access to the area book as well. When he tries to enter the page, it says access denied.

Just to make sure we're all on the same page: when you say Area Book, are you actually referring to the "Missionary Progress Record" which was linked in a previous post? Or are you referring to the actual online Area Book that missionaries use?

I admit I'm a bit of an old-timer so I don't know what (if any) difference there is between the "Missionary Progress Record" and the "Area Book" from a ward leader point-of-view. At least we didn't have to use rock and chisel to record our info back when I was a missionary (we had moved to parchment and quill pens by then...) :lol:

Not sure if you have found your answer yet, but here is the link you can follow to access the Area Book. https://areabook.churchofjesuschrist.org/
You have full access to the people your missionaries are teaching.

I do have a few suggestions for the area book to even better help WML in the work.

  • Link missionary planned lessons to a calendar platform (Google, Apple, etc)
  • Allow for reporting off the platform. (I would love to see who is teaching with the missionaries to not over burden the 'gung ho' members
  • Allow members to "sign-up" for lessons in a calendar type platform (this would help ward involvement significantly)

Don't think anyone at church development in Riverton looks at this, but maybe they will. Hopefully this helps.
