Re: Tithing

Now you must specifically request that donations are not reported to the local ward. They don't ask if you want to keep your donations private, but I believe they will set them up that way if requested.

Re: LDSTech Conference 2015 - What I'd like to see

--What is the future of showing media in meetinghouses as part of Teaching and Training? Are there enough TV's - Will we see devices for checkout in the Library? What are the barriers the Church sees to using the TV's in Libraries (my stake they basically gather dust)? In my ward, I think that at l...

Re: Streaming Face to Face events

Our YM president streamed on his notebook for our activity last night. After opening mutual with the YW, we had enough time to watch about half of the event and a 5 minute disscussion of our impressions while watching. A download would be great for use of clips in a Sunday lesson (I'm not sure I'd w...

Re: How to pay tithing online?

I could see some concerns about recuring transactions - once you put it on autopay, do you remember to modify it when your income changes? However, I imagine that the new system doesn't do recuring or future transactions simply because they didn't want to delay rollout to add those features. Does th...

Re: Lenovo Tiny

I'd set up the initial account entering the user name for the password. Then after creating the clerk account, I'd change the password for the intial adminstrator acount so that it does not match the user name.

Re: 2016 Events Erroneously Spanning Multiple Days

I imagine that the calendar software might be assuming mountain time somewhere, but it would be weird fo that to affect events for one year but not annother. Perhaps it is applying to all newly created all day events? Does the MLK holiday you entered span to the next day or previous?

Re: Old "Davis Dimmer" Lighting System

I know that this is an ancient post (not much activity on this particular board as I found this on the first page). My stake also has a building with some theatrical lighting equipment. We have a EDI dimmer pack with 12 x 20 amp dimmers that patches into the theatrical lighting circuits using a stag...

Re: How to pay tithing online?

Does anyone know if the new online system supports donations to the Ward Missionary fund of other wards (to support a family member who is not in the same area)? I could see a system where the member outside the area would get the unit number from the missionary's bishop and entering that in the onl...

Re: Streaming Face to Face events

The best thing about the itnernet stream as a backup is that it is behind satelite enough that if you act fast, you may not miss any of the broadcast (of course that means you're dependent on the stream for the remainder).

Re: Face to Face technical difficulties

I think it would have been counterproductive to disable Wi-Fi since I thought the whole purpose of the event was to allow the youth to interact during the event. Perhaps I am wrong. That was the impression I got too. I seem to recall satelite being mentioned on the page I saw about the event last w...
