Open APIs to pull Member Lists?

#1

Post by jdylanwright »

I am interested in knowing if anyone has ever figured out how to get refresh the live member list data from LDS Tools into an Excel Sheet using APIs? I have not found information in LCR about APIs but I am trying to see if I can pull the member list into an Excel file (through something like PowerBI) so that I can refresh the data in Excel as the member list changes.

Any advice or similar ideas is welcomed!

Doing that is likely to earn you a phone call from the church security department.

APIs are reserved for church apps.

You might want to give feedback in LCR about the reports you need and the "business case" for needing them.
Have you searched the Help Center? Try doing a Google search and adding "site:churchofjesuschrist.org/help" to the search criteria.

So we can better help you, please edit your Profile to include your general location.

The latest update to the Church Handbook at 38.8.31 explains why you will not find API information and why it will be difficult to do what you wish to do.
