Re: Automated - New & Returning Member Progress (NMRP) report

I don't disagree with church policy about storing personally identifiable information (PII) and sensitive personal information (SPI) on cloud storage. From the 100's of church members that have reached out to me over the last 2.5 years since this NRMP google sheet template was published, lds.org dev...

Re: Automated - New & Returning Member Progress (NMRP) report

I know this post is old but the Google App Script enabled [NRMP] spreadsheet has many users. I added an often requested feature. Make a new (as of 22May2017) copy of the [NRMP Template]. Then enter the ward/branch name and stake/district name once on the [Ward Council View] tab. In subsequent report...

Re: Automated - New & Returning Member Progress (NMRP) report

I am impressed by how many folks have found this NRMP google form useful in your local units. The questions have been few but persistent about how to gain access and use. I created a brief video to help those unfamiliar with google form usage: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BwaI40ia50pFbFRHZnY3WX...

Re: Automated - New & Returning Member Progress (NMRP) report

I am the author and agreed with ALL of the posts that essentially fell into 2 buckets: 'for' or 'against' using cloud storage (outside of lds.org) to accelerate the work. As noted by <russellhltn>, my answer can't be a clear 'yes' or 'no', it's a "depends". The decision, when I read all av...

Scouting - Stake Troop, Patrols in Wards/Branches

For Stakes with units that have sparse numbers of YM (i.e. <5)... I have heard rumors of Stake's maintaining "the" troop charter and individual units running patrols. The ideas being to: 1. Reduce the burden of scout organization staffing in the units 2. Improve the quality of the overall ...

Re: Tax Exempt Certificates - multi-jurisdiction & MA/NJ cert's

Sadly most large vendors (Home Depot, Walmart, grocery stores...) have a custom process too, on top of the states :-(

But the "1" Home Depot tax exempt ID should work for all the states listed above. Just provide the ID: 1606928348 at checkout.

Re: Tax Exempt Certificates - multi-jurisdiction & MA/NJ cert's

Thanks for the clarification. In NJ, I don't have a special 'sales tax category' that can be applied to purchases that I am aware of (been a clerk for 14+ years). That's why I didn't follow the comment.

NJ's 7% sales tax impacts the ward budget. For large purchases $100+, it's noticeable.

Tax Exempt Certificates - multi-jurisdiction & MA/NJ cert's

I read this from back in Nov2015: https://tech.lds.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=50&t=23436&p=147732&hilit=tax+exmpt+Tax+Exempt#p147732 The above link has useful guidance on which purchases may or may not be tax exempt. Basic rule of thumb, if the ward budget covers 100% of the purchase in s...

"The Piano Guys" LDS youth event - YouTube stream access @ a chapel

I am curious if anyone has a pointer to the network policy of what is passed or blocked from streaming on chapel networks (i.e. YouTube content blocked). The YM/YW orgs in my ward are thinking of streaming this as a combined activity 20Oct2015: https://www.lds.org/youth/activities/spiritual-strength...
