We have a pending meeting for all Finance and Ward Clerks with a guest from Salt Lake in June or July (there is some confusion over the date). The topic is said to be new audit procedures. Now I might be linking things that aren't related, but it would seem to me that a new reconciliation process mi...

Mandatory password changes are just so much "security theater" anyway. They don't really increase security at all. If a password is compromised it's going to be used, someone isn't going to wait 60/90 days for you to change your password before trying it out. So nearly 100% of the time a mandato...

Our financial clerk was doing our December reconciliation this past Sunday and came across an odd error. November 2009 was fine and in balance. After entering the data from our December 2009 statement (beginning balances, interest, etc), we have one outstanding check from December for 351.23, no oth...

Move along now, nothing to see here... As reported yesterday when trying to close the previous year the process appeared to stop. No error message, no progress indication, no nothing. We tried exiting MLS, which MLS let us do without any complaint, rebooting the computer, because rebooting almost ne...

The task was interrupted, and in fact MLS allowed us to exit and prompted us to make a new backup. When we restarted MLS the urgent task remained and we are unable to do any financial work at all. Upon trying to close the year it again stopped at the same point. Talking to our Stake Clerk of Tech Sp...

How long should closing last year take? We started the process today before the meetings started and by the time the block was done it wasn't. It seemed to get hung deleting old batches.

Any thoughts?

My Primary classes look fine, but MLS did NOT update my youth Sunday School. Our Primary President has not given me the custom assignments for their classes, so they are still the standard MLS assignments. But Sunday School are custom class assignments and they did not update at all. Fortunately bec...

Are there any incentives (rewards) for being well under budget or punishments for going grossly over? As has been mentioned, this is largely up to your Stake President, but let me offer a couple examples.

This appeared with 3.1, but it's still with us in 3.1.1. Each time we do a send/receive we get a warning message saying we're about to connect to the PRODUCTION server, and asking us to confirm this action.

My questions is why?

Just to complete my post...it never did get past the "Loading Resources" message. After waiting a couple more minutes I rebooted again and things started up much better and I was able to log in.
