Who can see the FHAR Report

It does not make sense to me that the Stake Temple and Family History Consultant -Family History Center can not see this report that they are working so hard at yet the Stake Young Men's, Young Women's. Primary and Relief Society can.

We all share an active interest in using the resources of this site and as users, we have various levels of knowledge and experience and do our best to help each other with concerns, issues, and/or questions.

    Talk to your Stake Priesthood leaders to find out why. If they don't know ask them to find out why.

    Keep in mind the trend by the Church away from reports is still happening. The activity report may not be related to the Family History Center, and if I remember correctly, it is generated from member activity on the site, not at the local FHCs.

    My understanding is that the access was changed in order to reinforce priesthood oversight of Temple and Family History Work.

    My thoughts: Too many ward and stake leaders were happy to have the TFHCs run on ahead and do their own thing, while leadership remained relatively disconnected from the work. Limiting access to the reports redirects the responsibility and accountability for temple work back onto the correct hierarchy of leaders.

    It reminds me of Nephi's broken bow incident. He could have just gone ahead and determined where he should hunt for food, after all his father was in a spiritual slump. But he chose to follow proper priesthood authority and asked his prophet father for direction, reestablishing his proper place as the patriarch of the family.

    But that's just my perspective from my own observations and experiences concerning the change.

    I totally understand where you are coming from.

    And, although the "Relies" by 'Christina' are spot on; and, provide the "Reasoning", all that DOES NOT help!

    The 'Calling' of "Stake/District, Temple and Family History Consultant --- Family History Centre" is "technically" that person(s) "Assigned" as the 'Director(s)' of a "Family History Centre" (FHC).

    I am certain, at present, that in many Stakes/Districts (possibly, excluding "Utah" and some other such), that the "Stake/District, Temple and Family History Consultant --- Family History Centre" is the ONLY Stake/District "Consultant" that is currently 'Called'; and, has also been, either, given; or, taken on, the rolls of being responsible for (1) Training "Stake; and, Ward/Branch, Temple and Family History Consultants"; and, (2) the "Group Admin" for "Indexing" within the Stake/District; and, (etc).

    I certainly understand the need for Stake/District Priesthood Leadership oversight of "Temple and Family History" Work within the Stakes/Districts; but, many of those Priesthood Leaders appreciate the, experience; and, suggestions, of a/the "Stake/District, Temple and Family History Consultant(s)", who formerly had DIRECT access to the "Family History Activity Report" ( FHAR ), in the FIRST instance.

    I would certainly like to suggest that Management (ie. Church Leadership) CONSIDER giving DIRECT access BACK to the "Stake/District, Temple and Family History Consultant --- Family History Centre" (Director,FHC); AND, for that matter, ANY "Stake/District, Temple and Family History Consultant", as "Assigned" (eg. Training, Indexing, etc).

    It is a little contradictory to say:
    ...
    Stake/District Priesthood Leadership oversight of "Temple and Family History" Work within the Stakes/Districts
    ...
    when that "Knowledge Article" about the FHAR indicates that; as well as, the "Priesthood" Leaders, the:
    Relief Society Presidency;
    Young Women Presidents; and,
    Primary President;
    ( not to mention the,
    Sunday School President; and,
    Ward Mission Leader)
    ...
    have access to the FHAR.

    The "Stake/District, Temple and Family History Consultant(s)" SHOULD also have; and, in fact, NEED to have, direct access to that FHAR.

    Perhaps, hopefully, with the 'revamp' of "Temple and Family History" Work, the change in the need for the position(s) of "Stake/District, Temple and Family History Consultant(s)" to have access to the FHAR was just overlooked; and, they will get the access BACK again, ASAP.

    We can live in hope.

    This needs to go to your local Priesthood Leadership. In a previous (months if not a year or more ago) discussion thread in which Ron Tanner said "We are not authorized..." in reference to the local reports.
