Enter attendance and home teaching/visiting teaching in LDS Tools

Postby jlangf » Sun Jul 31, 2016 4:56 pm

I was thinking it would be pretty cool to be able to allow members to "mark the roll" from LDS Tools (such as "present" for Sunday School and "present" for Priesthood/Relief Society for the current date) and to report their home teaching and visiting teaching from LDS Tools for the current/previous month.

I noticed that another forum post ( https://tech.lds.org/forum/viewtopic.ph ... ce#p157102 ) says that the ability to record attendance doesn't exist in Leader and Clerk Resources which I would guess would happen before such a feature gets added to LDS Tools, but I just thought it would be cool and would make recording and reporting this information much more efficient for the clerk for quarterly reports and for the various auxiliaries.

Just an idea.

Thank you,
John Langford

The church is very careful about the kinds of information it records on a permanent record like an electronic system. I'm not sure if they'll ever go to an electronic method of marking attendance. Right now, it's on paper that's likely disposed of shortly after the stats are compiled.

We've been told there are no plans for the teachers to record their own HT/VT.
