Re: HomeTeaching Organizer App Beta Version

Sorry if I offended you but I only call it as I see it based on the information I have. Then perhaps you shouldn't call it. I suggest "Calling it as you see it" is really just a form of judgement. In this case judgement without knowledge. What happens when the you or the bishop of the sta...

Re: HomeTeaching Organizer App Beta Version

It will be interesting to see what the long-term effects of that are. There may not be any in the short-term, but I've heard stories about GAs showing up for Stake Conference armed with all the unit stats ready to discuss them with the Stake President. That would be a great time to bring up the nee...

Re: HomeTeaching Organizer App Beta Version

What a mistake MLS is such and easy program to use and the HT/VT portion of the program ties directly to the member data base where reports can be run by the bishop that shows him the stautus of HT/VT in his ward. Mistake? I don't think so. Not to boast, but my ward has been able to maintain above ...

Re: HomeTeaching Organizer App Beta Version

Please be aware that we've been counseled not to upload church data to 3rd party sites. That may not affect your plans to help your ward/stake, but you may find other units less willing to participate since they may not be able to verify what you intend to do with the data or your standing in the c...

Re: HomeTeaching Organizer App Beta Version

Where would you gather your data from in order to maintain the such an app? Where are you going to save the data? It could be very well is stores the data the same place MLS stores the data. I am just saying the interface for that could be different. Many details would have to be flushed out. Inter...

Re: HomeTeaching Organizer App Beta Version

The Brethren who make that decision do not visit here and have not communicated any reason. Well why would we have an Ideas & Suggestions forum if no one who actually makes decisions reads the forum? The point of this board is to make priorities based on suggestions. I think the home teaching a...

Re: HomeTeaching Organizer App Beta Version

"Correctly" is a matter of opinion; clearly those who have the authority and responsibility to allocate development resources think differently from you. The Church has excellent developers; I have no doubt that a team could develop a great HT/VT application in a reasonable time frame. Bu...

Re: HomeTeaching Organizer App Beta Version

The main thing I've learned from all this I think is that we are not using our resources correctly. It took me a little over 20 hours to develop to rinky dink version. Why couldn't a team of 4-5 developers do an awesome version in a few months? I think MLS has been a crutch when it comes to making c...

Re: Internship to Full Time Possibilities

I'm afraid that is not very helpful.

I don't see church managers giving people a guess on whether or not it could lead into a job. I was wondering if any FORMER interns could post and give their insight.
