... But, for a new Bishop and his even newer ward clerk it's a handful. I have little trouble making the system work - its helping the Bishop make it work FOR HIM that is tough! :)Jim Jones One thing I have found helpful is to provide screenshots in a document for the common simple tasks. It takes ...

I agree with you and drug my feet for about 2 months trying to convince the Bishop it would be an administration nightmare, but it's my nightmare, not his... The Bishop's reasoning is too long to fully explain here, but it finally pretty much came down to, "if it is possible, just do it, please." He...

...have you looked at your ward in the Beta Directory? look at http://www.beta.lds.org , sign in (upper right) with your LDS Account, and look under "tools" for "directory." If you do a search here for "beta directory" you'll get lots of posts as we are all excited about it. I think cell phones, em...

And if the Child's record is created but they still don't show up on Primary roles, you might have to "Reset" their organization. I have to do that from time to time when the Primary President reports to me that a child disappeared from the roll for some reason. Go to the Child's record and in the O...

Does anyone know if there is a limit? The reason I'm asking is my Bishop wants an individual "other" account for each youth (the reasoning is too long to go into here). So, I created about 60 accounts that are each named for an individual. The problem is, MLS randomly de-activates some of them. Twic...

A better solution would be the requirement that the area code be included in all telephone numbers for the US. Not to be contrary, but I must disagree with this suggested course of action. We already have several areas in MLS were partial information is not allowed, which places a higher burdon on ...

Correct. I have to remind the Organizational Leaders and Secretaries almost every time that their attendance data is only for the last month of the Quarter.

WOW. Our audit was long (6 hours) but everything related to CUBS came out OK except for a bounced check pre-CUBS last year (I had documentation that LUS was working on it) and a couple of lingering reconciliation issues where the system doesn't know the difference between check 5385 (written pre-CUB...

Also, you can update the data throughout the month. For example, if the HT numbers are missing a HT District report, you can enter what you have so you can transmit the report on time. As long as the month has not passed, you can open the current Quarterly report and Update the numbers, then re-tran...

We don't, but I think it is an outstanding idea. DC orders are a bit of a uncontrolled item now (before new.lds.org, organizations had to order through the Clerk because our bishop wouldn't let them have the ward account number - this gave me the opportunity to run everything by him before placing t...
