See Handbook 1, 14.6.2 and 14.6.3. Only a bishopric member and clerk (or two bishopric members) can open the donations. It's interesting that 14.6.3 specifically mentions a Melchizedek Priesthood holder (not necessarily a clerk or bishopric member) working with a bishopric member to prepare the deposit. Exactly what it means to prepare a deposit is not clear to me -- does it include the entry of donation slips into MLS or not? But the language of 14.6.2 quite clearly excludes an executive secretary from being involved in opening donations.

Alan gave the handbook information. My practical experience has demonstrated that an executive secretary cannot be one of the two e-signatories required to authorize a donation batch - even when edit finances was listed in the executive secretary's MLS user permissions.
