Church-managed computers can be used for a variety of things and experience a variety of issues. The stake technology specialist is responsible for setting up all Church-managed computers in the stake, providing first-level support on them, and ensuring that they continue to function properly.
Set-up, management, and use
It is important that Church-managed computers are set-up, managed, and used appropriately. They should always have Church-approved anti-malware and management software installed on them.
Member and Leader Services (MLS) software is installed on clerk computers for Church record-keeping purposes. It sometimes becomes necessary to do a clean MLS installation (like if you're setting up a new computer) or to repair other problems with MLS.
Other Possible uses Besides MLS
- Creating a ward bulletin
- Printing out CD/DVD labels
- Working with mail merge documents
- Printing mailing labels
- Creating presentations for gospel-centered classes or youth groups (YM/YW/Scouts)
- Sorting lists outside of MLS using the spreadsheet software
- Tracking Boy Scout advancements (with an application like TroopMaster)
- Creating administrative forms (e.g. reimbursement forms)
