Need easier way to "mass update" data in MLS

Inside Utah, there will be a new area code introduced within the next year. This will introduce 10-digit dialing for the areas. It made me start thinking about the data that is in MLS within our ward and wards within our stake... There are several of the telephone number entries that are not a full ...

One more feature request...

Your wish is our command. You can also now sort by date if you wish. Tom Is there an RSS feed for the Q&A section specifically? That was fast work... I should have asked earlier!! Thank you. It would also be helpful from the first page that you see when you click on Q&A to know when the most recent...

Q&A Section needs dates included

I really enjoy the Q&A section of this website... However, as it grows - it is hard to scan through the different questions to see what is new and what has been out there for a while... My suggestion: Include a date with the questions. This will make it easier to see if there are new questions poste...

256MB RAM - Follow up... RAM upgraded to 640MB!

I wanted to follow up on my original post... I received approval and the go-ahead from our SP to upgrade each of the ward computers in our stake. I purchased a bunch of single 512MB RAM modules and put them into each system - upgrading them to 640MB of RAM. We have noticed significant performance bo...

MLS & RAM requirements... is 256MB enough?

I am fairly new at my calling as STS (Stake Technology Specialist) and one of the common complaints I am hearing from our ward clerks is: "Why is the system so slow launching MLS?" "Why is the system so slow booting up (Starting Windows) - after logging in?" It's funny how fast technology changes......

Need a better way to extract the data from the system!

I have been tasked by our Stake President to provide some charts for each of the wards in our stake - using the data from the Quarterly Reports. I found that I can take a quarterly report and "Copy to file" - but that works only one quarter at a time. I have copied these all out to a file that I pla...

I have recently been called to this position (STS) - and so I was very excited to see this site... (I only found out about it here though!) I thought it was great that there was a section for troubleshooting... However, it is hard to browse for related articles - the only way to navigate to the docu...

Older magnetic strip sleeves...

You are probably remembering when recommends were placed in a plastic sleeve that had a magnetic strip on it. The strip was encoded with the deceased person's name and ordinance and then swiped through a card reader when the ordinance was completed. This is not that. The barcode on the new recommen...
