Does anyone know if I can run a report of the Relief Society Birthdays?

Thanks

I'm not in front of MLS right now, so I'm not sure if there's a built-in report for that. But it seems like it would be fairly easy to build a custom report.

Welcome to the Forum!

There are several ways to do it. I have a couple of custom reports up at the Church that were developed for this exact purpose. In one, you have to edit the Birthday month each time, but the report only lists the sisters with Birthdays in the Current month. The other one lists all the Birth Dates for RS Sisters and sorts automatically by month because the Birth Date is the first column. We have Bishopric meeting tomorrow evening - I will export the MLS custom report formats and post them here when I get home tomorrow night.. You can import the Report Format into your MLS and you will be done!

I'm sure you will get some excellent suggestions from other forum members of ways to accomplish this before tomorrow night so you can pick whatever method works best for you.

There's no need to create a custom report -- MLS contains a built-in capability for doing this:

  1. Go to Organizations > Relief Society
  2. In the Members section (the third section down) click the blue Print link.
  3. Using the "List Type to Print" dropdown, select "Birthday"
  4. Select additional options as desired.
  5. Print
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.
