Certificate of Advancement

#1

Post by ThomsonTD »

Can someone tell me where to find the Primary Certificate of Advancement in MLS? When I searched for this form in store.lds.org, I discovered that you can only order this certificate in languages other than English. The product description included this explanation:

The bishop presents this certificate to each boy and girl in sacrament meeting after he or she turns 12. This product is being discontinued and will shortly be available via the MLS system.

Thank you. I sometimes have a hard time finding what I'm looking for in the MLS menus.

I received this reply from support:
When you first enter MLS you will see 6 boxes. Click on the "more" in the box titled Reports/Forms. In the next screen you will see 3 boxes. Certificates is in the first box titled Forms/Certificates. Once you click on Certificates, you will see a list that includes "Primary Advancement Certificate".

FYI: For those that may find this topic after searching: I think certificates are now printable from LCR. Based on the 3.2 Release notes:

https://www.lds.org/help/support/clerk- ... ng=eng#3.2
Added the ability to generate and print certificates for the following events: child blessing, baptism and confirmation, Primary advancement, deacon ordination, teacher ordination, priest ordination, elder ordination, and high priest ordination.
(I don't have the right privileges in LCR to confirm, but based on the release notes it should be there).

Yes, it's there under Reports > Print Certificates on the LCR menu.
