Re: Forwarding MYLDSMAIL messages to gmail address

Son #1 is the missionary that's writing emails to be shared throughout the family. He sends them to me (dad), and my auto-forwarding rule passes them on to a dozen or so family members. Son #2 has the Gmail account that the messages aren't getting through to. But Grandma and Grandpa also have Gmail ...

Forwarding MYLDSMAIL messages to gmail address

My son is a current, full-time missionary, and happily he writes to us each week. At his suggestion, I set up an auto-forwarding rule on my email account to automatically forward his weekly letters to a few other family members and friends. This worked perfectly for about 7-8 months. But recently, o...

The person who wrote the check has access to see how it was endorsed. The endorsement will say that it is being cashed by a Church entity. If the check-writer sees the endorsement by an entity they specifically chose not to give money to (in your scenario), I don't see how they would not feel decei...

How many of you out there would like it if CHQ officially set up every wards account so that it allowed the depositing of checks written to the units Scout troop? What problem would it solve for you? I'd give a thumbs-up for your idea. Our ward has dealt with this numerous times during our annual s...

I wasn't aware of that change in MLS -- I haven't had an DC orders for a couple of months. Given that this detail shows up, I certainly agree with you that there's no longer any compelling reason for wanting to do transfers (and of course we can't do them anymore, anyway). Thanks for sharing that i...

Tracking expenses shared between wards

I'm looking for new hints or techniques on how to best keep track of expenses shared between wards. Some background: Our ward's Cub Scouts are combined with two other wards. Leaders are called from all three units, and they turn in reimbursement requests to their respective wards. Then, we clerks bi...

A member who wishes to contribute to the General Temple Patron Assistance Fund may write it in on the Other line of their donation slip. We have instructed our clerks to record it there (in Other) and await further instructions. Either MLS will be updated or we will send checks to the Church, as we...

For this issue, they actually prefer working with/through the ward clerk while he is sitting at the computer. They typically have the clerk perform a send/receive in which they pull in a backup. That is sent on to the programmers, and within a day or two, a setup file is sent down to correct the is...

UPDATE: I spoke with MLS support today, and they are now able to fix this problem. It involves a forced backup on the next send/receive; corrective action applied on the data at CHQ; and a second send/receive to download and apply the correction in the local database. I'd encourage anyone with this...

As the link in RussellHlt's post above points out, all this discussion begs the question of whether the unit is able to accept a donation for Scouts at all. This is not a matter of tax law, but of Church policy, which generally prohibits such donations. There are some very narrow exceptions related...
