Directory image quality wonky

I've never had issues before, but today trying to update my family's picture, the uploaded file image quality looks poor after the upload. My steps: 1. I am starting with a very high resolution file, 5631x3754 2. I am resizing it down to the requested 500x375 using paint.net 3. I upload the file usi...

Re: Webcasting sacrament meeting to shut-ins

michaelfish,

Our assisted hearing receivers are wireless. I haven't looked at them to see if they have a headphone out or something similar on them. I'll have to glance at them the next time I'm in the library. Are yours wireless?

Re: Webcasting sacrament meeting to shut-ins

gekelley, I'd be curious what software and hardware you are using to do this. I researched using icecast to do an audio stream via a webserver, but we opted for the simple suggestion of using audio CDs because the bandwidth in our building is unpredictable (ok in the morning, dropped packets in the ...

Re: making Resservations

Looks like the online help is still using the word reservations. My wife is the new building scheduler and had me look into why she doesn't have the reservations menu option. Yes, but the reason it was renamed is because it was being mis-used. Things need to be scheduled as events , not as a reserv...

Re: Webcasting sacrament meeting to shut-ins

Although we don't Webcast our Sacrament meetings to shut-ins, we turn this into an opportunity of service. In our ward, we record our Sacrament meeting talks with a laptop using one of the assisted hearing receivers, then burn 4-5 CD's, tape them to the inside of a program and send them out with th...

Re: Webcasting sacrament meeting to shut-ins

I realize I'm resurrecting an old thread, but given the church's advancements in webcast support, I wanted to get a feel of what people are doing for the home bound members/shut-ins. Our building does not have the fastest internet, so I think I'm limited to probably only audio. The idea just came up...

Re: making Resservations

Today the settings 'reservations' option is not listed as a choice... "Reservations" has been renamed to "Restrictions" to better describe how it works. It has never been a "reservation" in the normal sense of the word. Looks like the online help is still using the wor...

Re: MLS: Org calling windows too small

In the top right corner there is a dropdown box that you can change it to just show other callings, between that and maximizing your screen you can get a good part of the primary teachers on the screen at once. I'll try the drop down and see if that makes it any more manageable. [Moderator note: Th...

Process for making suggestions

[Moderator note: I split this topic from the original topic MLS: Org calling windows too small , since it deals with a separate issue.] I appreciate the increase in attention the church is giving to utilizing video, websites, etc. However I think there are a lot of tools that could have a big impact...

Re: Allow Orgs to print rolls via lds.org

It's all a matter of priorities. It's been made clear that access will be given to auxiliary leaders at some point. But the Church has limited development resources, and not every good plan can be implemented right away. So at this point, access has been given to ward and stake leaders and clerks, ...
