Re: Ward Youth Fundraiser: Using Venmo

Fair points. I certainly get the need to be cautious. Would be nice if we didn't have to tread softly and if we could get some direction on it. I'm pretty certain that there are wards already doing this. Thanks for all the feedback, though. I was really curious at what others are doing. We've done ...

Re: "Send a Message" Function on LCR

I was told that if the Church wanted us to keep no contact lists, they would include the ability in LCR There is a reason to keep an opt out list (it is not a do not contact list in our case): - If a clerk or the member themselves remove their email address, they won't get ANY emails from our unit ...

Re: "Send a Message" Function on LCR

My personal opinion only: this could be part of the problem and would be made worse by senders who don't respect the contact wishes of members. When I use the Send A Message tool as EQP (and I use it very sparingly), I go through the list and uncheck members in our ward who I know have requested no...

Re: 2021 Recording Attendance Guidelines

Hoping someone can help me out, attendance for EQ is recorded in tools app for this quarter. Tools app has been synced but no EQ numbers show up on the quarterly report in LCR. What am I missing? A few months ago when I still did the quarterly report, I noticed that it took 10+ minutes for the atte...

Re: 2021 Recording Attendance Guidelines

Nobody likes to have to say "well, just keep checking, maybe at some point you'll be able to do it", but that's all we can do for now :roll: Release Notes would be really helpful, which they used to do. It seems they've gone to rolling changes and not big forklift upgrades but a page some...

Re: 2021 Recording Attendance Guidelines

I am having an issue with young men's leaders and Sunday school leadership not being able to access reports and class attendance The Sunday School presidency should have access. The presidency of the Aaronic Priesthood is the bishopric, and they also should have access. I was a ward clerk and now I...

Re: What is blocking the use of circles for your organization?

We are trying to use the app for all of our communication. The biggest obstacle is that parents don't get notifications unless we add them to the group. Is there a way to allow notifications for those who have "view only access" namely the parents? Adding them to each circle is not ideal....

Re: What is blocking the use of circles for your organization?

We're going to try Circles with our teachers quorum. One benefit of the app is it supports the youth entering their goals into it. The youth haven't been too enthusiastic about jumping on board and surprisingly don't seem to understand the technical limitations of massive text groups. One note, our ...

Re: What is blocking the use of circles for your organization?

I'd imagine that a lot of youth do have phones, just not smart phones. Something that will work on text messaging (SMS) seems like it would be more successful. While you have a point about web apps, not having a web app means the door is completely closed to some participants. And that's non-starte...

Re: What is blocking the use of circles for your organization?

Thank you very much for the responses, just a couple thoughts to bounce around.... If a child doesn't have a cell phone the communication issue exists whether it is Circles or Groupme/other app. IMO, not using Circles for worry of leaving some out will just mean the communication will still happen c...
