  2. 2. Before you begin entering the information into Shelby, edit the report. This means checking the report for required information. Required information includes: •Full name (first/middle/last) •Address •Full name of officiants (first/middle/last) •Date and place of ordination. If you are missing required information, do not add to Shelby. NOTE: Make sure the officiants hold the proper Priesthood office. If an outside officiant has officiated, you can call Membership Records to check on the Priesthood office held by the minister.

  4. 4. Click on “Addresses” Verify the address and make changes, if needed.
  5. 5. Click on “Phones” Verify the phone number and make changes, if needed.
  6. 6. Click on “Life Events” Click “Add New.”
  7. 7. This will bring up the data entry screen to enter life events. At the top is a small box that will say, “Description” and will have “Baby Blessing” already entered. Use the drop down arrow to choose “Ordination.” Add the following information: Effective Date: Date of ordination Assisting: If there were two officiants, the second one is listed here (first/middle/last). If there are three officiants, include the third person in the notes as “Also Participating: person’s full name”. Officiant: Spokesperson for the ordination (first/middle/last) (Do not check “Use GlobaFILE”. When that is checked, the Officiant field is blank on the report that goes to Membership to generate the certificate.)
  8. 8. Location: City, State where the ordination took place. Use the two digit state abbreviation. For example: Independence, MO. Congregation Enrolled: Enter the official name of the congregation. Type: This is the priesthood office to which they were ordained. NOTE: If the person already holds priesthood, you will need to open that ordination and put an end date on that entry. (See exceptions on next slide.)
  9. 9. Exceptions: •If the person is a High Priest and is being ordained to the office of Evangelist or Bishop. • In that case, you do not put an end date in the High Priest ordination. •If ordained to an Evangelist and they have not been ordained to a High Priest. • Enter two ordinations: one to High Priest and one to Evangelist. Use the same day, place and officiants. • This is entered at the Mission Center or World Church level.
  10. 10. Click “OK” to save Click on the “save and close” button at the top left corner. This button looks like a white sheet of paper with a green check mark.
  11. 11. If it does not, you will need to go back and change it manually.

Note: the priesthood office listed under “Individual Information” will default to the most recently entered priesthood office in life events.
