Calendar notifications from old ward/stake

I recently moved to another stake. I'm still getting email notifications of events from my old stake. I've done about everything I can think of to make them stop, but to no avail. Can someone help me can these old stake notifications? :?

Searching membership

I am working on my ward history for the year and have not been diligent in keeping up on "events" as I have been in the past. Is it possible to search the membership list by birthdate or baptism date; i.e., can you create custom forms on LDS.ORG? "My" missionaries are always aski...

Printing from LDS.ORG

Printing from LDS.ORG to my ward printer is incredibly slow. I wouldn't call printing "snappy" from MLS, but sometimes it takes a couple of minutes for the printer to begin printing after the request is entered. At home, the problem is not apparent. Any help?

Export reports to files other than PDF

I am a ward clerk that also does the weekly bulletin. I have been asked to insert a birthday list in the bulletin each week. I just spent 2.5 hours trying to convert the birthday list "provided" by LDS.org into a list that I can work with to insert into the bulletin. I may not be very brig...

Send email for calendar event

The new LDS.org calendar allows users to send an email a number of days prior to an event. Does it allow you to specify what subgroup of the ward to send it to, such as the YSA or the YM? It doesn't do much good to send an email to the whole ward for a YSA activity. Can you target a specific group? ...

Re: Save reports from LDS.ORG to Word or text

That doesn't help the clerks that NEED to have the data in a format other than the one chosen for us. They could enable exports for clerks and bishop(ric)s and keep it closed for the general membership.

Save reports from LDS.ORG to Word or text

Why, oh why, doesn't the website allow reports to be saved to a word file or to text? Clerks need to be able to download and manipulate data such as birthday lists. The website classically saves files to PDF, but the alternating line colors drive the Acrobat PDF OCR crazy and one is unable to save t...

Re: Easy Two Page Directory

I, too, would like to print a "2 page" directory. I sure wish clerks could download info into excel or a raw data format easily. I used to do it, but the way things download, it takes far too long to mess with. I just used to print a 2 column page with the following information. Nowadays w...

Phone numbers

Phone numbers are a pain. MANY people no longer have a Household Phone. If you leave that field blank, no phone prints out on the simplest Ward Directory from LDS.ORG. You have to specify" individual details" and then the directory becomes 20 pages long. How do others handle phone numbers?...
