Have him stay and help you count. [grin] Or nicely ask if the report will wait for a few minutes until the deposit is complete. They, of all people, should understand what is going on and be willing to work with you. We have it better than that. Both Counselors stay and open/count while the Finance...

I saw that as well just before going on a 3-week business trip out of the country. I don't have access to MLS currently and did not have time to look into it. My attempt at following the suggestion to recategorize the expense had the effect of creating several odd transfers that will have to be rese...

I just love it when you in the middle of tithing entry and a ward leader will come in and ask for a report, and you tell them sorry you'll have to wait. May I suggest you keep the Clerk office locked during tithing entry. Tithing is confidential and only Bishopric members and Clerks should have acc...

The fact that it is on Church letterhead has assisted us in issuing keys. Everyone wants a key. When we show them this document and that their calling is not on the approved list, then most members drop their requests. For those who still want a key, we discuss it with the bishop and stake presiden...

Our Distribution Center shipping confirmations have always gone to the Bishop (to be honest, in over 6 years as ward clerk, I never thought to request them to be sent to me). The Church is pretty particular to get the new Bishop information spread around quickly so that may resolve your issue easier...

I have been seeing odd behavior with the accounts as well. Some that were "0 balance" and inactivated have been re-activated. Some that were "0 balance" but active have been inactivated. This has been going on since the latest CUBS update (at least I did not notice it before). I have not seen a patt...

... 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...
