It should be a busy week for the programmers. You might want to point out this thread to him. [grin]

I am having the issue with Primary and Single Sisters. I cannot make any changes to those organizations (calls and releases).

If you call MLS Support, their answering system acknowledges the error and states the patch is expected Wednesday morning.

How to proceed

Postby donald_duck-p40 » Tue Dec 29, 2009 1:20 pm

Hello everyone

Please excuse my English.

I noticed the same problem. Now I'm a bit troubled since I need the (neat) printout of the organisation-callings for our ward yearly-program 2010. (soon!)

Is there any workaround or a possibility to downgrade so I could print.

A possible solution I have tried is exporting the callings .csv which can be visualized in any speadsheet-program e.g. OpenOffice. But I will not be able to make it look decent AND it doesn't export the full date of confirmation...

Any suggestions are very wellcomme.

Thank you.
Cheers

We're being told that it will be fixed tomorrow. (I don't know what time.) Hopefully that's soon enough.

As mentioned earlier, a patch that fixes the bug will be available Wednesday morning, Utah time. So that is only about 18-20 hours from now. Unless you have an urgent need for this right away, I'd advise you to wait for the patch.

Otherwise, the only options I would see are:

  1. Use the Organization.csv export and live with the fact that you only have a month and year for the sustained date.
  2. Save a backup of your current MLS data, uninstall MLS 3.1.3, reinstall MLS 3.1.2 (assuming you can locate a 3.1.2 installer), restore a backup made by MLS 3.1.2, update any callings that changed between that backup and now, print out the organization reports, reinstall MLS 3.1.3, and restore the backup of your current data. That sounds like a lot of work. Personally, I'd just wait the 18-20 hours.

Just let you know, that I had a unit call me today and had this issue. They did a send and receive and the patch was pulled down and everything was good.

This was 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday. So get them downloaded.
