Re: YW Camp Fundraiser

After funds are collected into the Other account
it might be appropriate to re-categorize the
advance from Budget to Other. Matches the
expenses more accurately in my opinion.

Re: Donations not credited to member

I recommend you use "View/Update Donors", and scan through the list of donors. If you find the member's name there, make sure they are not listed as a nonmember. If they are, click their name and link them to their member record. Sometimes the link between donor and member record breaks an...

Re: Expanded Access to Leader and Clerk Resources

Perhaps Stake Leaders should be given access to test data.
That way they can learn the system so they can train the
ward leaders, but real data isn't shared unnecessarily.

Re: Best practices for Facebook

Slippery Slope, allowing the Relief Society blog example. It is replacing the Lesson Schedule tool, because no one will maintain both. Same with the blog replacing the Newsletter tool (which few units use anyway). It would be better for the church to have a "bright line" rule that we can h...

Re: Best practices for Facebook

Not to fork the discussion, but was a letter sent telling us about this change to Handbook 2 ? If Handbook 2 will be revised in place on the website, perhaps a convention should be adopted. Even something as simple as putting a revision number at the end of the number could be helpful - for example ...

Church Distribution pricing change

I just came across the notice on the Official Communications Library that there are to be no more no-cost items available from Church Distribution effective immediately . I don't remember how many items (or what types of items) were no-cost, but imagine it might have a significant impact on the alre...

MLS 3.7.1 recently updated ?

I noticed on the clerksupport website that the MLS
download page lists that it was updated on Jul 29th,
but the build number of the MLS installer is the same
as the MLS installer's last update on Jul 3rd, so is it a
new build, or if not, why was the last updated date changed ?

Re: Ward Boundary Maps Detail

4.9.3 The use of MLS data and membership information in third party software is prohibited, whether obtained from within or outside of a meetinghouse. That is going to be one tough policy to enforce. I've seen so many spreadsheets used by wards for membership issues that it's hard to believe units ...

Re: Expense Form for Fast Offerings

The form also has attached the "proof" of the expense. Normally this is a receipt, but is often an invoice or past bill in the case of fast offerings. I think Fast Offering disbursements should have more scrutiny than other expenses. Too much potential for error or abuse in my opinion. Don...

MLS 3.7.1 Intra-stake transfers

One of the new features of MLS 3.7.1 is the ability to transfer funds between units within a stake. It is handled in the "Enter Transfers" screen, and requires a stake presidency/bishopric member and a clerk to authorize (much like the donation process). As I experimented with the new feat...
