Can someone clarify for me? I am the executive secretary in our ward and I need to change my Bishop's work phone number (or help him do it) that is listed as on the maps.lds.org when you search for our ward. In the CDOL, that number is not even listed, only his home number so I don't imagine it is pulling from there. In the Wiki, it mentions that it needs to be done on the MLS computer, but I searched high and low for the place but couldn't find it. (https://tech.lds.org/wiki/LDS_Maps_help/en#Ward_leader.27s_name_or_contact_information_is_wrong)

Any direction or better, definitive answers would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Since you can't see it in the CDOL or MLS, it might requires using the Leader and Unit Change Request from the stake MLS

It's possible if your Bishop signed into the CDOL, he could add his work number there and it would flow to the maps. I can see a work number for my Stake President, so I know it supports that field. And I assume there's probably some connectivity/sync from there to Maps.

Either of these two paths should work. The bishop can change it directly at CDOL, or the stake clerk can change it in MLS and do a Send/Receive to update CDOL. It should flow from there.
