Primary Activities for boys and girls roster

#1

Post by jefferyborders »

It was my understanding that primary children can begin attending primary activities for boys and girls in the year they turn 8, however it is only showing children who are 8 and up in the member list for each group. Is anyone else facing this problem, or are these names going to be migrated into the rolls for each group?

You are right about what the age is for attendance in Activity Days. Handbook 2, 11.5.2 states: "Where practical, the Primary may hold activity days for boys and girls ages 7 through 11. Children may begin attending in January of the year they turn 8."

The transition to all the recent new programs and guidance for the programs is going to take a while to properly be implemented in the online systems. Just to make sure the development teams are aware of the issues you should provide feedback through the link found at the bottom of the online page you find the problem.

There is a process running this morning that is fixing this. It should be done within the next couple of hours.

If you:
Go to Organizations > Primary.
Select Primary Activities - Boys.
Click on the Members tab.

Down at the bottom of the list on the right side there is an Add Member option.

Can you add a member to a class roster that isn't a member of the church?

No.

Once upon a time, MLS allowed adding non-members, but that's been removed for quite some time.
