Change ministering district assignments

#1

Post by Engrsteve »

With this new change, our ward ended up with 6 districts for ministering in the elders quorum. I am trying to merge these back into 3 districts without having to delete the companion ships and starting over. I would just like to change the district number of a championship.

There is an edit button next to each companionship that gives the option to move it to another district
There are 11 types of people. Those who understand Gray Code and those that don't.

That's because the high priest's districts got moved into the elders quorum.

kd7mha, yes I saw the button yesterday and the dropdown had nothing in it. Today it has options

CDOL, I had pretty much figured that out

Thanks for the help and the replies

But how can you combine two districts into one without having to retype one of them?

In the Ministering > Companionship view in LCR, click the Edit button to the right of each companionship, select the "Move to..." dropdown and select the district you want the companionship to be in.

It would be very helpful if you can get to the reports of the discontinued ward and print them. After that, the only way to combine them is to go to the surviving ward and manually add all of the information from the discontinued ward.

I do not believe the information will be combined automatically. When wards are combined, what happens technically is that all of the membership records from the discontinued ward are moved to the surviving ward and everything is as if they are all new members of the ward.

As a new Elders Quorum President trying to muddle through all of this, I find it a bit daunting and sometimes confusing. I would like to simply "Move" a Ministering companionship from one district to another. When I click the "Edit" button as described, there is no "Move" option given. I've refreshed the screen, restarted the computer but still no way to simply move the companionship. What am I doing wrong.

I have attached a snip of the "Move" button showing where you need to be on LCR to see it. The button becomes active when you click the check box next to a companionship. I hope this helps you.
