Re: Electronic donations

I know people have been asking about this over the years and the answer has always been "possibly, eventually" but as society changes this becomes a more pressing issue. There are many people out there who don't use physical checks, don't have a local bank branch and don't usually deal wi...

Re: HomeTeaching Organizer App Beta Version

Just because the because crowdsourcing failed previously does not mean it should not be employed now or in the future. Failure is a part of the innovative process. Failure is a right of passage in start up circles. So just because it failed at one time doesn't mean it shouldn't be done again with a ...

Re: HomeTeaching Organizer App Beta Version

I think this posts actually proves one thing, if the church allowed the membership with coding skills to help these implementations would move forward much more rapidly. The Lord should not have to command in all things, nor should the church have to hire in all circumstances. There are members who ...

Re: Associating Tithing with LDS ACCOUNT

I think this is a great idea. It would be great if not only we could tie our donation information to our membership account but also pay through it. Paying your tithing is the act of faith, not having the Bishop collect it. Further having been a financial clerk I can testify their is significant tim...

Re: I-tithe???

I suggested a similar idea just recently. Hopefully it will be implemented soon. Sending it from your bank through their bill pay is a nice option but the paper trail is difficult to establish for the wards and stakes. Having a customized online system through the church's site and/or app would be m...

Re: Tithe Online

I posted a comment on an lds group on facebook about this and a member in Finland said they could pay online and have done so for the last ten years. I suspect the church is testing out online payment systems abroad. I suggest we all pray it to the US. Remember all things that are good and expedient...

Re: Donation App

So the church apparently has been doing online payments outside of the US for nearly a decade. Someone from Finland said they had been doing it for the last ten years online. I guess we can just hope and pray they implement in the US and abroad sooner rather than later.

Re: Donation App

Thanks for the replies lajackson, eblood66, & marianomarini. Hopefully someone with authority reviews them. The advantages of the online solution aren't really the issue though of this suggestion. This has been one of the most frequent suggestions in this forum going back to 2007. Back then it w...

Re: Donation App

Thanks for the reply lajackson. I think it might be one of those things they are forced to do rather than developed with foresight. Common sense tells me that if you are going to add multiple online tools to the main website one of the first tools is a system that makes it easier to collect funds to...

Re: Home Teaching Assignments available on LDS.org

I agree with slohner. At the Stanford Ward back 10 years ago we actually had a beta version of the ward website. Not only did it list who our home/visiting teachers were it also: listed who you were assigned to teach, each of the names were links to the person's profile, you could scroll over the na...
