I'm struggling with the categories and hope someone can shed some light, or at least some suggestions. As a YSA branch, our biggest budget category has always been the Activities Committee. In CUBS, that committee has been banished. Does anyone have some ideas about where a sub-category for Activiti...

I ran into this today. I was under the assumption that the backups were happening "behind the scenes". Not so. After my Assistant Finance Clerk logged off, I logged on and got the message that there were urgent tasks. The urgent task was the standard blurb that MLS had not been backed up. This was n...

One thing that is difficult with the outages is that on Sunday I want to go back to the Forum or Wiki to confirm how to do something, and it is gone. Is there any way that data-dumps, html-local copies, or other periodic "snapshots" can be provided for either the forum or the wiki so an offline ver...

We recieved 2 book 1 and 4 book 2 (way short of what we will need). This squares with my memory. If we do get the organization-specific books at some point, 4 copies of book 2 should be adequate. Side note: When I was interviewed by the counselor in the stake presidency for my branch presidency cal...

I just noticed this in my Tools menu today: https://apps.lds.org/pbrequest/ I recently had a member come ask me about getting a replacement for his lost copy. I had also stumbled on this in the tools menu, so I sent him the link. He had to create a lds.org account and then go to the above link. Onc...

If I have a branch, how many Handbooks 1 and Handbooks 2 should I be receiving? I ask in regards to the November 2010 leadership training. Our branch only received five. Additionally, if I have a ward, how many Handbooks 1 and Handbooks 2 should I be receiving? Thanks! Looks like most of the replie...

Easiest way is to send an email to Finance from MLS, stating that you need them. You should get a reply within a day or two, and the deposit records will arrive at your bishop's house in about 2-3 weeks along with a mountain of the plastic deposit bags. Just did this a couple of months ago and it wa...

Thanks. I figured it would have to be a custom position and Sunday School makes more sense for the organization than other options. Our classes are generally taught on weeknights, so that adds to the confusion.

This is the direction my stake clerk got when he called support. They said they are very aware of the problem and are working on it. Since it didn't interfere with any other functions, they said leave it alone.

I ran into a question today that I would like to pose for your comments. We called a Temple Preparation Seminar instructor. When I went to put the position in to MLS, I discovered that this is not a standard position. I created a custom position under Miscellaneous callings, but wondered if that is ...
