The Member Tools app provides members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints with the ability to contact ward and stake members, access event calendars, and locate Church meetinghouses and temples. Leaders can also access additional membership information and reports.
Recording Quorum and Class Visitors
Added the ability for quorum and organization leaders and secretaries to record the number of visitors attending their quorum or class each week.
Bishops, branch presidents, and clerks can now use the "Manage Records" menu option to move records and record ordinances. These options used to be under the "Reports" menu.
Schedule a Temple Appointment
Added a link to schedule a temple appointment on ChurchofJesusChrist.org under the "Temples" section.
Ratings and Reviews
Great idea, poor execution
As an introverted member of the church, the idea behind this app is invaluable- a place where I can look up my fellow church members and leaders and get their number or address and find a way to connect that isn’t walking up at church and saying “hello, let’s talk” because that’s terrifying. However, many of the aspects of this app make it difficult for me to use, earning it’s star rating- it’s been buggy lately, meaning that I have been too anxious to use it for its intended purpose. The information doesn’t sync often enough (despite my best efforts to push the sync button!) so it often isn’t very helpful. So many people are on “private”- I don’t know if that’s the default or if people are just choosing it, but again, if all of my church leaders are on “private”, I feel like I don’t even know who to talk to much less how to reach them. And there’s no in-app messaging options, which honestly would make my life so much simpler. If these things were updated, especially the last one, this app would get 5 stars from me. But until the technology catches up with my needs, the best I can do is 3 stars.
Syncing Issue Resolved - Instructions
So the syncing issue, for me anyway, has been going on for quite some time. I’ve developed Apps in the past and finally had some time to dig in and dedicate to testing this one, to see if I could find a pattern to the issue. I’ve been able to reproduce the issue and fix it multiple times now. Here are steps I took to fix the Syncing issue. For reference I am on the latest update of iOS on an iPhone 11 Pro. - Here is the fix - Open the app and immediately click Help in the upper right of the screen, Click Sign Out / Reset and then OK. Then, Delete the App from your phone and then re-download it. Sign in and accept the permissions. Sign in and let it update. The update will likely take a while, a few minutes (3-5) for me. It should work. It worked for me a few times on a few devices. Here’s the other important thing. If you want to make updates much much faster go to Settings, under the More... menu and turn off Download Photos. The issue may actually be caused by turning on Download Photos. This is a great app, when it’s syncing. Enjoy.
Great app, just a few suggestions
Overall I think this app is great! I think it does a great job when it comes to contacting members and finding peoples numbers in my ward, which I find is very necessary at times. It also is a really great tool when I want to see who the new people in the ward are and their names so I don’t constantly ask them “hey, sorry what’s your name again?” I just look it up haha.
A few things I think would make it better are 1. I often find that I need to find someone from another stake but I don’t have access to the stakes around me, it would be infinitely more convenient if I could see as far as the stakes in the area around me to be able to contact people in those wards as well. 2. Another thing is age, it has been very difficult for me to figure out who people in my ward are when they don’t have a picture or ages on this app. I know that only a few people can access age but I feel that it is a very important identification tool and would help immensely if everyone could see age and birthday (even if it’s just for individual wards).
These are just a few things I would suggest.
Thanks for keeping these in mind!
