Thanks for the explanation!

Thank you for the quick reply! My attempts to search for an explanation directly on various sources was coming up empty (this forum, clerk's wiki, clerk's troubleshooting guide).

Again, thank you for the clarification.

Resolved

Thanks for the pointer to the official instructions on account settings. Just wanted to report back that making the changes to one login account for the machine has been completed. All logins to MLS now work properly.

Donations show as sent, not cleared

In checking through various financial reports yesterday as part of Tithing Settlement preparations, I checked the "View/Update Donations" report from the Finances block of MLS. It shows all of our donation batches since General Conference as "Sent", though all batches prior to conference show as "Cl...

Adding 'Jr' to Preferred Name

I appologize in advance if this is has already been addressed; I didn't find anything similar in a preliminary search through the forum. I've been asked to add 'Jr.' to a record so it shows as such on all lists, forms and reports. In checking the record, 'Jr.' is already present on the Full Name fie...

MLS fails to start on new user account

I have a strange convergence of occurrences here, not sure where exactly to post it (so if this is the wrong place, admins, please feel free to move it). Summary: MLS fails to load on a computer account created after the MLS 3.0 upgrade. Background: the ward MLS machine was upgraded to 3.0 early (an...

Famous/Prominent Members in nFS

Just like to mention, as one with ancestors who crossed the plains, for many of them, the number of records and the quantity of junk already in nFS makes resolving the records properly a task more daunting than feasible given the current tool set. I continue to monitor the progress of the new tools,...

Isn't that already available ...?

Through the Family History Centers, we now have access to FootNote.com. After playing with it a bit, I can see how this would be a strong supplement to the (eventual) addition of the FamilyBrowser features of nFS. One of FootNote's core focuses is dumping your personal shoebox of photographs and doc...

Scripture study tools - plus more

I whole-heartedly agree that this would be useful! Thank you, awayment, for posting the suggestions! These are right in line with some of my own thoughts on where scripture study tools could be headed, if anyone were interested in pushing technological boundaries a bit, though I haven't seen anythin...

Glitches on form for rebaptism

I'm not seeing this addressed elsewhere (though perhaps I haven't entered just the right incantation into the search tool). These are all fairly easily worked around, but are annoying and inconsistent with the rest of MLS. I see most date fields throughout MLS accepting three letters for the month p...

Possible solutions - my 2 cents

There are several example combining problems I've come across, and each has a different solution which comes to mind. These are based on my limited understanding of how the NFS system works, and my background in software engineering. For some of instances where I'd like to separate individuals, I ca...
