Is there a way to send an email invitation to members of my ward to join indexing?
Many members of my ward are not showing in my list. How do I add members?
When a member start indexing, their name should automatically show up on your list. If that is not happening, you should contact Family Search Support.
The only way I have found to send an email invitation to a member is look up their email address on the chruch website and send them an email.0
There are several things to comment on (I am responding as a Ward FHC - one of the Ward Indexing Admins listed on the Ward Indexing page):
- Check your Ward Settings to see what type of 'Joining Model' is being used (Ward page> Options (button)> Group Settings> General Settings)
Open - means 'anyone' can join your Ward Indexing group (as @Tom123 indicates above)
Request to Join - means 'anyone' can send a Request to Join your Ward Indexing group
Invitation Only - means 'anyone' can be invited (by Ward Indexing Admins) to Join the Ward Indexing group
2. To invite people to join the Ward Indexing group (Ward page> Options (button)> Manage Members> Invitations):
It appears to me that the Ward Clerk may need to enable the 'Indexer' role for you to be able to add recipients to this Invitation. For example, I am unable to add a member to someone I know is not currently on the list - I suspect this is because they do not have the 'indexer' role attached in 'Leader and Clerk Resources' application (I will have to check with Ward Clerk to verify this).
Pending members would be those who have requested joining but need an Admin to accept that request.
Note: If email addresses are incorrect - Admins will not be able to send invitations.0
I am trying to add family members to my family indexing group that I've created. Is there a way to send them a link to join the group?0
I cannot send invitations.
I checked the general settings and clicked the invitation only button while I was attempting to make this work. Still I get the red exclamation point, and the email address is in red, I guess signifying the email is not accepted.
Also tried just adding names that are on the ward directory, still get the red.
This has worked for me before. I have the admin rights to do it...wondering why I cannot invite people now.
Here is a link to help with inviting people to join an indexing group
Does anyone know if your ward indexing group admins or even stake indexing group admins knows which of the members is indexing out of the members list? and are they able to view how much is coming from each individual?0
Yes, Admins should see the 'reports' (which can be run at any point - Current Month, Previous Month, etc).0
