Funny MLS Reminder

Postby aebrown » Sat Jul 12, 2014 5:42 pm

I just received a message in our stake MLS that said:

Church headquarters has not received a Quarterly Report for the following units:

<several ward names>

This report is now -4 days overdue. Please have them submit as soon as is feasibly possible.


I guess the math works out (the report is due on the 15th, the message was sent on the 11th, and 11 - 15 = -4), but it's certainly unusual to be told that I'm a negative number of days overdue on a due date that is still in the future! :confused:

These computers. Next thing you know they will be telling wards in advance which Sundays they are not going to be preparing donation batches. I guess that's one way to get the stake conference schedule.

Yes, I saw exactly that message yesterday at the stake center. I could not figure out how a report could be -4 days overdue.

Did this come as a message (email)?

It was an MLS message (visible only in stake MLS in the Messages area).

Thanks. Just verifying what we suspected. The message isn't created by MLS -- it is coming to MLS from a different system.
