Financial record keeping training

Postby jtanner » Tue Oct 23, 2012 1:03 pm


Could someone please point me to the official online financial training that a new member of a bishopric should take? I've found various pages (ie. with information regarding finances but it seems to me there use to be a tutorial that folks could watch.

Thanks in advance!

Look in Record-Keeping and Technology Support on You have to sign in to to get access to this calling specific site. There is a Finance section in the Topics menu.

Thank you JD, I found that earlier but when you click on "finance" nothing is displayed... maybe they are still building it, not sure. I remember a few years back watching a financial training tutorial but it was on the old site. There has got to be a tutorial for new finance clerks and/or bishopric members out there.

jtanner it is not your fault, it is difficult to understand what is a link and what isn't in the new system.

To be frank, the new system doesn't come outright and yell "This link leads to training!" In fact, in order for you to find all the training that you're expected to have, you would have to click through all of the different links on this Finance section, just to see if one of them leads to a training presentation.

Although I agree that the old training link (which you just supplied) takes you to a page where the training is much better organized. But once the new site is fully operational, that old training page will be retired. So pointing people there is a very short-term solution.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.
