Missionary Standard Reports

So I had been a membership clerk followed now by being a Ward Clerk. It is pretty normal for Missionaries to ask for reports around:
-Recent Converts
-Part Member Families
-Unbaptized Children
-Prospective Elders

I was curious if there is any feature request process to maybe encourage some development for Missionaries to be able to query some of this stuff themselves. Not that I don't mind helping, just seems like it could be more efficient. If there is a place to submit this, or if there is already some work on this then disregard.

You can submit the idea via feedback in LCR. No promise it will be done before you get released, or done at all.

There isn't a 100% reliable way to generate reports of part-member families or unbaptized children. For part-member families, a clerk must have entered in spouse information for every member with a non-member spouse – otherwise, they'll show as single-parent families / single adults. For unbaptized children, each non-member child must have a record created. Even if the clerk is on top of record-keeping, there will likely be many non-member spouses and children not entered into Church records, because families have to give consent for that to happen. For that reason, an annotated report from someone on the ward council who knows the ward members – including those who aren't in Church records – will be much more useful to the missionaries than an automatically-generated report.

I am a Ward Mission Leader. Bishop and his counselors get access to reports on New and Returning Members in Leader and Clerk Resources. These reports allow the ward to track weeks they attend church, etc. As a WML I do not have access. How do I get access?
