In my reading of the handbook this afternoon, we could transfer the excess Ward Missionary funds to the General Missionary fund (with Stake Approval) that is pulled to CHQ and then redistributed. However, that will not guarantee it will get to the specific missionary, just be available for use in th...

When the building was first re-keyed, we were told the Clerk and Executive Secretary would still have access to the Material Center as before. However, it quickly became apparent that this was not the case. Later, our HC who works with the FM group verified that they never intended to allow Clerks o...

Clerk cannot have access to the bldg Copier

Can anyone provide a logical explanation??? Our building was re-keyed last fall. As part of that process, access to the Library was removed for Clerks and Executive Secretaries. We were told (by the Stake) that this was directed by the FM group and was in compliance with Church policy. Since there a...

You may want to present Responsibilities for Updating Membership Records at a Ward Council meeting. Thanks for the document - I will recommend this course to our Bishop. One thing that we have done with some success is to provide a list of singles who are not active to our missionaries. When they a...

I apologize if this is the wrong thread, but I have a related photo issue. In the new lds.org site for my ward (Elm Creek, Tulsa Oklahoma East Stake) in the Directory app, the Photo link lists 1 photo awaiting approval. When I click on the link nothing shows in the photos area. I remember this one -...

I for one am very grateful for MLS and the increased power and ease of use it affords us. The custom report functionality is my favorite recent feature. Yes, CUBS was(is) a challenge and no, I am not yet comfortable that I know what I'm doing in the new system - especially with the rules changing as...

Where do you 'keep' the speak hstory that you export? Our Membership clerk keeps minutes of every Sacrament meeting, recording calling sustainings, attendance, speakers, songs, prayers, etc. This is not required by church policy, but has been done in this ward since before I was called as clerk in ...

My wife was in a similar situation a number of years ago on a cross-country trip with the children. They were stranded with Transmission trouble over the weekend. We did not request lodging, but she did contact a local Bishop and asked for assistance with rides from the hotel to church. If I recall ...

Exporting Custom reports is what we do. There are 2 reports (a 1-page telephone directory with Leadership list and a Speaker history for the Bishopric) that I have to manage with Excel/Open Office. The Speaker History has to be exported to allow me to populate the last date an individual spoke. I us...
