Re: Counting those attending broadcast in attendance numbers

I received the July 17 notice directly in email and I am a ward clerk. As it is addressed dear leaders assume bishops may have gotten it as well.

Re: Counting those attending broadcast in attendance numbers

In a July 17, 2020 email to clerks there is no mention of virtual attendance, and so counting such would not agree with established guidelines, instructions and the handbook, as attendance has always been defined as in person. "Dear Leaders, As noted in Leader and Clerk Resources, you do not ne...

Re: Can't add my parents birthdates!

Your ward clerk or membership clerk should be able to add your parents' birth dates in LCR, it will depend on whether they are members or not how easy it is to do, but it's available to clerks to update. They have to click on family first on your membership and go from there, either using the pencil...

Re: Ministry: Secretary assigned to a District

I was present at a solemn assembly in 1976 when then President Spencer W. Kimball said, "you, not the handbook, have the authority." Of course, that was before computers changed everything. Again, my biggest beef about this is how it was changed, not why it was changed. Members with callin...

Re: Ministry: Secretary assigned to a District

Very true, however, one of the things we have to go by is the authority given in LCR in the past. Secretaries have been able to have a ministering group since ministering began.

Re: Ministry: Secretary assigned to a District

Thank you, I have done so by sending the Stake President screen shots of this string along with my comments to him.

Unfortunately, when these type things happen, we don't know if it is another temporary glitch, or an unannounced change.

Re: Ministry: Secretary assigned to a District

I just checked our Relief Society ministering and the same thing was done to them with no prior notice or explanation. Hit and run programming is unprofessional, no matter how inspired the original direction given may have been. The final work process obviously was not well thought out. This change,...

Re: Tools App Not Working after Recent July 2020 update

The problem is, who is testing the software? My guess, based on what is happening to live product, is not a lot of testing is being done and it's up to the members to report problems. Not the way to run a successful railroad.
