Ministering assignment in LDS tools

#1

Post by psorrell »

I have an Android device. When I look for my ministering assignment on my household member page, I am not able to see my ministering assignment. My husband, using an I-pad can see his assignment. Is there some setting or something I need to do to enable this feature on my android?

Make sure you have the current version of the app. Right now, mine is 3.5.4.

You also mention "household". I'd suggest going to your individual page. Brothers Minister to households, Sisters Minister to individuals.

I have the current version (3.5.4). When I look on my individual page, I do not see anything. I am able to manually enter the sisters I am assigned to on a list, but I was under the impression that my assignment would have been populated with the information put into "the system" by my Relief Society presidency.

That's my impression as well. You might want to check with them and make sure they've made the assignments "live" and that you've synced since they made it live.

I checked settings and the software version on my Android and all was correct..higher versions than required but still, :) no Ministering assignments were showing.

I went to Settings and clicked on sync and Voila! I have my Ministering assignments and those who are assigned to minister to me in Tools!

Easy peasy! :-)

Hmm. I thought you couldn't see ministering assignments unless you had a certain calling. I was the Elders Quorum secretary, and I could see them then, but right after I got released, I couldn't see them (even for me) anymore. Or maybe I'm thinking of seeing who ministers to me, rather. That was a while ago, though (I can't use Member Tools until they update the app on Amazon).

You can see your own. You can't see others unless you have certain callings.

Thanks. I just edited that. I think it was I couldn't see who ministered to me, but I could see who I ministered to.

You should be able to see both. Ministering is a bit challenging because you will get none or part of all of it, depending on how busy the servers are at the time you sync. And the server will not tell you how much you got.
