Online callings - other callings sections repeated

#1

Post by brucewc4 »

The online callings for our ward has 10 Other Callings sections - Other Callings 1 - 10. Most of them are completely empty except for custom callings at the end. I think this may also be the cause of the LDS Tools iphone app not showing all the callings properly. Maybe something we have done in MLS with the callings has messed this up? Any ideas?
thanks

Every ward will have at least one Other Callings section. But if your ward has used the MLS feature for creating custom organizations, then you'll have more. I think this is because CDOL has some vague understanding that these callings are in a custom organization, but has no ability to actually bring the title of the custom organization from MLS to CDOL. And then the leadership section on the lds.org Directory and also LDS Tools take their calling information from CDOL.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.

That is correct.

Thanks for the info. I didn't set up the callings, so I don't know for sure how it was done, but I suspect that is the problem. I'll check it out.
