Convenient way to mass text message the quorum

Finding that contacting members through text message is *far* more effective than mass email or even announcing things in church, the elders quorum presidency I'm in has resolved to text activity and other important announcements to our quorum members. I'm looking for some app or Android feature tha...

Re: Mismatch between name on recommend and name in system for recently married sister

So I checked with the member and indeed she was married previously, and the name on her recommend was her previous married name, matching neither the new married or the maiden name.

Is there anything this member can do short of getting re-interviewed to have a recommend re-issued to address this?

Mismatch between name on recommend and name in system for recently married sister

Hi there, A ward member just got married (in the temple) recently. Consequently, her temple recommend has her maiden name on it but in the system her name has been switched to her married name. When she went to the temple today, they saw a mismatch in name between the physical recommend and what the...

The money would be there, yes, but it won't increase this year's budget allocation I expect.

Lost check for last year's expenses; any way to not pull from this year's budget?

A reimbursement check issued last year, funded from the ward budget, has been lost. It's simple enough to cancel that check and issue a replacement, but I wonder if it's possible to still draw the funds for the replacement check from last year's budget and how to do so?

Re: Old checks found; use or discard?

A follow-up from the OP: I called Local Unit Support and then said that as long as the checks have two signature lines (they do), then they're still valid checks that can be used as long as I make sure the check number I enter into MLS matches the check number on the check being used. I don't know i...

Old checks found; use or discard?

I finally was able to open a cabinet in our clerk's office that apparently has been stuck closed for years. One of the things I found in it was a bunch of checks with check numbers suggesting that if they had been used in the correct sequence, they should have been used about 8 or 10 years ago. I'm ...

Is it possible/okay to edit last year's donation before closing year?

Recently, we identified some donations to fast offerings that really should have been donated to one of the Other categories. These donations took place in December of last year, and as the first Sunday of the new year hasn't occurred yet, we haven't closed out the previous year. Based on the Church...

How to update address for less active member that is not in our ward?

A member of my ward gave me an updated address for her inactive (adult) child. This inactive member's record is not in my ward and presumably was in the ward where he was living prior to moving to a new address, which is the updated address the ward member has given to me. Is there any way I can upd...
