Overview of What’s Coming

Since its introduction in 2010, the Member Tools app has grown from a digital directory of ward and stake members to a powerful tool supporting both members and leaders throughout the Church with many additional capabilities. With the addition of many helpful features, the app will eventually be renamed Member and Leader Tools. Corresponding with this change will be updates to the app allowing leaders to do many things they can currently do in the Leader and Clerk Resources (LCR) web application.

In preparation for this change, several improvements have been planned and will be introduced during the coming months. For example, Member Tools will be updated with a new home screen. An improved menu will also be introduced to make it easier to navigate to features. Eventually, users will also be able to customize their home page based on their callings or interests.

All these efforts are a result of extensive research that has been conducted and will continue to be conducted with members around the world. As we make progress over the coming years, we’ll continue to update this article so you can learn about new, upcoming features.

Changes Coming in Version 4.9

The updated look and feel align with the latest design standards from Apple (iOS) and Google (Android), as well as the recently released Gospel Library version 6.5. The simplified color scheme allows users to focus more on the information on the screen, in light and dark modes.
