Re-print Limited Use Recommend that is Active

Postby mwsuman » Tue May 09, 2017 5:13 pm

One of our youth let his recommend go through the wash. It is still valid, but needs to be printed again. When I tried to print, it didn't have a Print button, but just an "Issue Recommend" button. Are we intentionally not allowed to re-print an active recommend? Even if I have the original and it is shredded?

I suppose some workarounds could be to save the PDF for later printing. Or simply print multiple copies at the time of issuance.

As far as I have seen, you can only issue new Limited Use Recommends. I wouldn't recommend (no pun intended) either of your suggested workarounds.

My full-use recommend recently went through the wash. I got a new one.

Our Bishop feels obligated to conduct a new interview if a new recommend is issued, since the new recommend issue starts the clock over. This added burden of time is significant in our ward so we are doing what you mention and either printing multiple copies to store in a secure cabinet or saving a pdf copy. Is anyone aware of a policy that would discourage that? I can't come up with reasons not to do it, but also reasons to use this work around. Just looking for a policy or reference?

You could try laminating the recommends.

I think it is a good thing if the youth need to have a new interview if they have destroyed their recommend. They should learn to keep better care of it.
