A growing number of members are giving up their land lines and using cell phones exclusively. The “Member List” reports (by church and by conference) and the “Directory Download” were built around phone numbers shared by families and didn’t work well for families relying on cell phones.
These features will now provide the person’s mobile phone number if the family phone value is absent. Any mobile numbers will be easy to recognize since they will have “cell” appended to them.
If you have been using a “band-aid” solution like entering cell phone numbers as family phone numbers — like “360-123-4567 (cell)” — you can now clear them and the “mobile phone” number will show.
