visiting teaching reports

Postby summerhayst » Fri Feb 05, 2016 9:31 am

How can we, with the new reporting system, have the flexibility to accurately reflect our VT assignments? We prayerfully seek inspiration to tailor our visiting teaching assignments specifically and carefully to fill the needs of each sister in this important ministry. For example, in some special instances we have situations where we would like only one person from a companionship to visit a specific sister. There is not an ability to create a new companionship to reflect this, because the visiting teacher is already in a companionship and the system is limited. In some instances a specific sister may be needed as a member of two different companionships to best fulfill the needs of the sister being visited. We have other special circumstances as well for which we can't find the flexibility in the system to accurately reflect.
Although we have found the new system to be very helpful in many instances, particularly with the ability to use it from one's home computer, we have found the lack of flexibility to be somewhat limiting in several instances. So, we have found the need to continue to update our own internal excel spreadsheet for our own internal use that we have created to accurately reflect the individual assignments. This need could be eliminated with increased flexibility in your VT reporting system.
Is there someone I could speak with about this? A phone #? An email address?
Could someone please contact me?
Thank you very much.

You can assign a sister to more than one companionship. If you try to assign a member to a second companionship, you should get a message that says "Member is already assigned as a teacher in the companionship Member / Companion. Are you sure you want to assign them again?" with a Yes and No button. If you click the "Yes" button, the member is then added to the companionship and you can proceed normally.
