Got it. I thought MLS populated LDS.ORG.

I will ask the members to update their own information in LDS.ORG. Much better system as now I do not need to keep track of this. Perfect.

However, names, addresses, and phone numbers do get transfered from MLS to LUWS. It's just the email addresses and the option of an alternate preferred name that can be independently set in LUWS.

It does populate some things. Name, address, primary phone number, meeting times.
It does not populate a lot of things, e-mail address and callings among them.

Just curious:
How long have you had an email address?
How long have you had a cell phone?

I've had an email address for about 15 or 16 years & a cell phone for a decade.

I just registered so that I could voice my support around this idea. Having phone numbers and email addresses linked to individual members would be a great asset.

This is on its way. See the thread Coming Soon to a unit near you: MLS 3.1 Beta. The wider beta test begins this weekend, and the release will probably be within a small number of weeks after that.

I have had an e-mail address since 1993.
I do not have a cell phone.

MLS email sync with ward web site

#20

Post by deggertsen-p40 »

It looks like we are able to put in individual email addresses for each member in our ward now. However, this information does not sync with the ward web site. I feel that the syncing the email addresses to the ward web site is important so that the emails will go out to those members specified in news and events even if they are not registered on the church web site.

I have subscribed to the thread.

Thanks for your work on this!
