Some new needs now that we have a 300 limit
I'm yet another user that is struggling with the 300 limit. I appreciated the 2 year expiration, that seemed like a great solution to reducing too many names being held by 1 patron. But I have done 1400+ ordinances in the last 2 years (even with the temples closed for Covid and the struggle to get appointments), so having a bigger list is helpful to not have to be doing research every month. But I can't do all of the endowments, and I have 1800+ endowments shared with the temple waiting to be done, many for several years. Here are some requests I have with these new limitations.
1- Ability to share a single ordinance with a family member rather than the entire name.
In order to reduce my personal list and get under the 300 limit, I'm trying to share my 125 Intiatories with daughter, but FS wants to share all ordinances needed, which for me is both Intiatories and endowments. I don't want to share the endowments, because my daughter can't do 125 endowments, and once she accepts them, then I don't have any control of making sure these endowments get shared back with the temple because they are now on my daughters list. I don't want to share these Intiatories with the temple. My daughter & I will easily get these done in a year, which seems reasonable to me to have what you will complete in a year on your list.
2- Ability to print a name from ordinance ready even if I'm over 300.
I just want to be able to pull 1 of my 1800+ endowments back from the temple, before I head to the temple. Currently, I can't do that. And even if I get my list below 300, it will always be a battle for me to keep it there with how much work I do. If ordinance ready didn't look at my personal list and let me print a name regardless, that would help.
3- Concerns with not getting to do my family sealings.
I am trying to do the ordinances in the proper order. Currently I have 342 SP & 741 SS waiting for endowments to be done in order to be done. Yes, I could submit them to the temple, but then once the endowments are done I'm at risk of the sealing being done before I get a chance to pull them back to me. Baptisms, Intiatories & Sealing are done so quickly once submitted to the temple and will be gone and done and I will have nothing to pull from. Also, If I am the one that shared the endowment then at least I can try to watch my list like a hawk and see when that endowment will be done, but if I am not the person who submitted the endowment then I won't be notified and the sealing will be done and gone. Also, the SP will probably all just be done by the temple and they won't even wait until the parents are sealed before sealing the children, which I know doesn't invalidate it, it just feels wrong to do it out of order, and I like being able to make sure they are done in order.
4- Limits based on user completion
As I said before I have done over 1400 ordinances this year, mostly in the last 6 months, when I finally could get in to the temple. Having 300 people for me is just 1-2 months worth of work for me to complete Baptisms & Sealings. I always share my endowments, and share most of my Intiatories as well. When I do 3 day temple trip with my kids, which I do a few times a year, I need 350 ordinances just for those 3 days. I'm sure setting a blanket number is more simple, but for those of us that are actively doing a lot of temple work, this is making it much more difficult. It would be nice to say, hey you did 1400 ordinances last year, so you're capacity is 1400 on your list. You only did 10 ordinances last year, your capacity is 300 on your list. Honestly, I don't see the number of names on a list as the bottleneck here with temple work, it's getting adults to the temple to do the endowments. Figure out that problem and that would really hasten the work!
