Melchizedek Priesthood Ordination Reports

Postby jamesrowley » Tue Apr 03, 2012 4:26 pm

Is MLS capable of generating a report of Melchizedek Priesthood Ordinations performed in the last six months, as well as name & date of ordination?

Yes, using a custom report. Set the following criteria:

  • Priesthood -- is -- Melchizedek
  • Ordination Date -- is in last -- 6 Months
For the Format, select whatever fields you need, such as:

  • Preferred Name
  • Priesthood Office
  • Ordination Date
  • Ordained By
If you have questions about custom reports, see the wiki article Custom reports (MLS).
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.

Very similar to a report we use on the stake level to prepare for stake conference, to create the "ratify list" for Melchizedek Priesthood ordinations since the last conference. Ours is slightly different for our needs... a custom report with the following criteria:

  • Priesthood -- is -- Melchizedek
  • Ordination Date -- is after -- (select a date just after the last conference-but not that same day, as the ordinations you sustained last conference may have been done that day, or a few days after)
And for the format, we have:

  • Preferred Name
  • Ordination Date
  • Ward
Although we've saved it as "MP ordinations since last conference," each time we use it we must edit it by entering a new "last conference date," of course.
