Sharing temple ordinances with group problem
Please share this problem with the rule makers.
Concerning names for temple work shared with the temple:
I am requesting that the rules be changed a little.
I would like to take temple work that has been shared with the temple and share it with my family group. We work as a team and we are being handicapped in getting the temple work done because I can't share it. My Groups and I should be considered as one and be allowed to work together to get the work done.
Not allowing the share to groups causes a real handicap to getting the ordinances done because I am not allowed to share.
Considering the time line of 120 days, I don't understand why it matters who I share it with. To me, it should only matter that the work gets done in the time frame.
Please consider making this change. We can't work together with this rule.
If you are the user who shared the original ordinances to the shared temple list, you can un-share them from that list back to your own My Reservations list and then share them with your family group. Only those ordinances in a person's My Reservations list can be shared to a family group as they stay on the My Reservations list with a link to the family group.
If the ordinances you are describing were shared to the temple by another user, that user anticipates that the temple or another user will quickly complete the temple work in 120 days. Since that ordinance has already been shared to the temple list, it cannot be shared again to group.
An ordinance that is on the shared temple list no longer resides on a person's My Reservations and cannot be shared to a family group. The processes for a shared with temple ordinance and a shared with family group ordinance are two different things.
Ordinances shared with the temple list are available to be reserved for 120 days by another user. That user can navigate to the Tree record of the person and reserve the ordinance there, or they can use Ordinances Ready to obtain these ordinances.
If you have identified ordinances that have already been shared to the shared temple list by other users that you want to do yourself, you can reserve them for 120 days and get the work done. If you think your family may be interested in these ordinances as well, you could message your family the PIDs for these individuals and they can directly reserve them for 120 days.
Shared with temple ordinances cannot be managed in family groups.0
My suggestion to the powers that are in charge is ... if a person has shared the work to be done with the temple, then, if I, or another person agrees to reserve that name, (second share)...that I and my group are considered as one share not two shares. The reason is, my group and I are working as a team. Therefore we should be allowed to get the work done as a team.
Yes we can communicate back and forth but that defeats the whole purpose of the group. It can be cumbersome, whereas the group is easy.
A share with the temple is because they need someone else to help. Well, let us help with the tools already there.
My request is that you communicate this "request that a person taking a name from the temple reservations be able to share with their group without the two share limit" up the up-line. The "Group share" will not undo the timer dates and won't slow anything down, it will speed things up.
