Stake Finance Tools in MLS?

I've been a stake finance clerk for almost 8 years now (once a clerk, always a clerk) and although I have found MLS a vast improvement over FIS, I wish it had more tools for stake level administration. For instance, with 11 wards and a branch within our boundaries, it is quite an effort...

Licensing Boy Scout Trailer - Title and Ownership Question

I know others have had this issue - my LDS sponsored troop has purchased a utility trailer to carry and store scouting equipment. The trailer was purchased used for a great price using funds from the 'Other' account. (These funds were raised just for this purpose, so be still your auditing hearts!) ...

Amended Reply

Content correction - I did not intend to imply that I send out all four allocations at once at the beginning of the year - as you state Alan, that isn't a possibility. I send the allocation information quarterly, as we receive it. The last two paragraphs of your post mirrors what we do on a stake an...

Good, but maybe not the Best

Am I doing something, for lack of better words, not good? Tom in New Mexico Tom in NM if this is what works for your unit and your bishop then who can say it isn't 'good'? There are however some drawbacks to only using the first of four allocations to formulate an annual budget. If all you are tryi...

I agree on all points

These have been my issues as well. We have 11 units in our stake and it is a struggle at year end for budget remianing (even though I send a monthly report to each Bishop showing what they have spent and what is remaining) they tend to disregard my reports and rely on their units' budget expense rep...

I know this is an old thread - but I have to agree with the views expressed. This is a good discussion - one I've been mulling over for some time. The Ward Budget feature on the stake MLS version has a limited range of use - so much so that I don't use it at all. I track everyting financial from our...

I have tried to use the allocation section on MLS (only on stake versions) to make and track these allocations but can't figure out how to do it. Any help here? MLS help doesn't address this (not tha...
