Feature request, LCR groups in LDS Tools

LCR has the ability to let users email the ward council (those users with access to do so). The question has come up about being able to text people from LCR. Since you can only text through LDS Tools, the question came up about having visibility of the Ward Council group as a list on LDS tools so m...

Re: Sending Emails with attachments ?

It looks like attachments are now an option on LCR.

Re: Advice for Moving Records

The responsibility with finding this information lies with the ward council (of which the clerk is a member). The clerk's responsibility is to move the records once the information is found. We have also found our missionaries are happy to go talk to the new occupants of the home and the neighbors ...

Re: Annual ward history template?

I came to the forum looking for a template or requirements as well, even though this is my 2nd or 3rd go at the ward history. It looks like I'm doing what others are. Here's what I include: - Ward theme - Deaths - Births/adoptions - Marriages (I try to include marriages of children of family members...

Re: Attach a document on "send a message" in LCR

HQ seems to be sending more and more FYI information to bishops via email attachments instead of snail mail. Our bishop wants to pass the info along to ward members so this feature would be great to send announcements that HQ is already creating. (example; Mormon Miracle Pagent)

Re: Automatic Payments

You are correct that normally the bishop will hand it off to the clerk (I am the ward clerk in my ward). However, using this method is still not advised in my opinion. The financial audits and controls are all based on making sure the money consecrated to the Lord is handled appropriately and as de...

Re: Automatic Payments

One can take a prior donation and "repeat" it very easily in the donation system. It only takes a couple of clicks if the amount and accounts don't change. This is what I would recommend to a member who does not want to physically write checks. Yes, you can donate to a specific missionary...

Re: Automatic Payments

Any idea if repeating donations will ever be available? I had a member ask about how to do auto payments for a son's mission. The only way to automatically do it (that I can think of) is to use a bank's bill pay system to send a physical check to the bishop every month and he brings it to church and...

Re: Out of Unit Baby Blessing Best Practices

Old post I know.... I have NOT been creating the records of babies blessed in our ward but the parents are in another ward (e.g. the grandparents are in our ward). I have been letting the other ward create the record and print the certificate. This seems to simplify the process. The only downside I ...

Re: MLS / How to transfer from "other" category into "budget"

Writing a check from the ward to the ward and allocating it to the budgets makes more sense. I'd suggest talking with the stake or an auditor before doing that. Otherwise, you might find you've got problems when it comes time for the audit. Mingling donations for camp/fundraising with budget is a b...
