Re: CRM for ward membership

This is interesting. I created a notebook in OneNote for this purpose. Very manual and somewhat intensive to manage. However, the data is there. I shared it with the EQ presidency and tried to get the RS presidency on board. The sharing part never really took off (for technical reasons), however, as...

Re: No Ministering Info in iOS or Android apps

This is happening for us as well. I checked with a member of the Bishopric and he reported the same problem.

Re: LDS Tools and SMS / Text Messaging

>> I'm sure the value of text messaging is not lost on the brethren, but that is not the perfect solution for everyone.

In our ward, we miss 50% + due to only having email... And we have all ages - a well mixed ward.

I just left feedback.

Re: LDS Tools and SMS / Text Messaging

Seems that something could be written to interface to Twilio pretty quickly. Just not sure about the costs :)

SUCCESS: Calendar Feedback

Hey - I just wanted to share a win here... We have several members at the C level in our company, and each use the WebCals feature to import the LDS calendar into Outlook (O365). It stopped working about 4 months ago, and they just reported it to me. I did some initial troubleshooting, and could see...

LDS Tools and SMS / Text Messaging

Hello- I've searched the boards here for discussion on SMS capabilities from LCR or LDS Tools and it's not been that deep. We have a young contingent in our Elder's Quorum who respond quite well to text messaging. We've tried sending mass text messages using the SMS option on LDS Tools, but you quic...

Re: Staging ministering brothers assignments

Agreed. I am newly called EQ president and I am struggling to find the appropriate way to stage all the assignments and changes for bishops approval. We recently had stake boundaries and have incorporated lots of new members into our ward, so this process feels like a complete overhaul of our curre...

Re: Split Membership data for Children from Split Families

The challenge there is that parental information isn’t available, or even information on that other ward. The manual legwork to develop a “family profile” is still required. But that is an option.
