Ward Program

Postby merlinherk » Sat Mar 12, 2016 9:55 pm

I am using LDS Prints by Inspire Graphics to do the weekly program and any other posts we need. But as the updates to Windows keep coming I am getting more errors from my other old software and I fear that soon it will not run at all.

What are some other programs people use for their wards?

Can just use Word if needed but hope there better out there

I've never heard of LDS Prints. I can't find a lot of info about it online, but it sounds interesting.

I use Microsoft Word. Some have mentioned here on the forum that they've found Google Docs great for preparing programs, because it makes collaboration and sharing easy. Unfortunately, there are still a few features that Google Docs doesn't support yet that in my opinion don't quite allow it to match up from a design perspective. The biggest for me is the lack of tabs with leader dots (.............). You could use a Google spreadsheet for gathering information, then plug everything in in Word or Open Office / Libre Office.

If you're more tech-savvy you could try setting up a program that will generate the program for you, but whatever you use should be simple enough that you can pass it along to the next person with a calling to prepare programs without them feeling overwhelmed.
