About Member Tools

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. As we continue to add many helpful features, the app will eventually be renamed Member and Leader Tools. New features being added are the 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 upcoming features before they’re released.
