I wasn't sure which forum to post this in, so here it what "this" refers to

As ward clerk I had created the attached form to collect information from members as the moved into the ward in order to request their records and also verify some of the information on the records when they arrived. Part of this was also collecting information about emergency preparedness resources we might call on in the even of a natural disaster.

Since MLS 2.7 the custom member fields have allowed me to add all these categories to MLS to generate reports from. But I cannot figure out how to generate a useful report in MLS with the custom reports module.

What I need is something like the Callings by Organization report that lists each resource (instead of organization) followed by the names of individuals with that resource (i.e. phone number, name, address, GPS coordinates).

Any ideas?

MLS doesn't generate that information organized in quite that way. But you could generate a custom report that contained all that information (organized by person, as MLS can easily do), export it to a spreadsheet and manipulate it there, or export it to a text file and parse it with a Perl script or some sort of application. It certainly wouldn't be trivial, but the data is all there, so it can certainly be done.

Interactive Talent and Interest Survey

Postby mprusse » Mon Jun 08, 2009 5:49 pm

I would like to find an interactive PDF version of the Talent and Interest Survey (33812) so it can be distributed via email or LUWS. Ward members can then fill out the form electronically and submit it with a click of a button on the form to someone's email address.

I have started adapting the Talent and Interest Survey to be interactive but it will require quite a bit of work building all of the fields, etc. I'm wondering if anyone has already done this so I don't repeat the effort unnecessarily.

Thank you.
