Security is an issue. You having the ability to generate a report is not the same as you having the ability to export a significant chunk of data and store it on an unsecured workstation.

Re: Tools down for updates on sunday

It seems that some in Technology don't know that church sites, as well as members are actively using church sites such as Lds.org and member tools on Sunday morning. This causes a problem with record keeping in all it's forms for the staff at Stake, Ward, Branch and Mission locations as well as mem...

Re: Missionary not listed in Ward Missionary List

In the meantime, I'd suggest donating to the "Ward Missionary Fund". The clerk can transfer the funds later after the account is set up. This will only work if the donor and the missionary are in the same ward, since there's no way to donate to the generic Ward Missionary Fund in a differ...

Re: Missionary not listed in Ward Missionary List

The funding account is created at about the same time the mission call is issued, so she should be listed as a missionary in the online donation system before she gets to the MTC. I just verified that our ward's two missionaries who have not yet entered the MTC are listed. The first step would be fo...

Re: Annual ward history template?

I agree that including photos involves some risk. Maybe adding a reference somewhere in the annual history to the stake or ward Facebook page would allow the reader a way to access photos without including them. The lifetime of the annual history documents is likely to be longer than the lifetime o...

Re: What to do with Joint Custody records?

You've already gotten solid advice and found an appropriate answer, so I just have one additional thought: I'd prefer to not have duplicate records for someone, but maybe there are situations where that is the most appropriate... There are no situations where that is appropriate. There should only b...

Re: Tithing help asap

The next step would be to have your ward clerk contact the service center for assistance. If he doesn't know how to contact them, he can start at https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/help/support/record-keeping/finance/contact-information.

Re: Moving a record when don't know destination

If you have home ward information (where the student's parents live), sending the records there is usually better than to "address unknown." In Leader and Clerk Resources, you can see the previous wards the member has lived in (I think for the past year). You might be able to see specific...
