One other thing I forgot to mention is that the logs can be kept at the facility and used at a later date. For example, a bishop (without email) could request to see how often Jane Doe worked. A search feature in the SW could list all the dates and times Jane worked.

sign in/reporting SW for Bishops Storehouse etc

As a bishop, I have the responsibility to ensure that those receiving monetary help work for it in some way. I often send such recipients to the Bishops Storehouse or Deseret Industries to do voluntary work. To follow up with them, I have to physically go to the facility to go through pages of volun...

Ward Tools

I bought ($30) Ward Tools for my iPhone a few weeks ago and I love it. I use it about every other day. As a bishop, it's very valuable.

Bishop's forum

As a new bishop, I'd like to be able to gain wisdom from other bishops who may have had experience dealing with similar issues as myself. A 'Bishop's forum' would be a great way for bishops to share ideas and experiences. This forum would have to limit access to only bishops. If the General Authorit...

I need this

As a bishop, I need to get sundry info on any member in my ward at any time. I'd prefer not to carry my big binder with the 90page report where anyone could take it and look at it. The MLS data base would be much safer in my iPhone than in my binder and much more portable and accessible. I currently...

LCD TV glasses for hearing impaired

The Church is has always been mindful of the hearing impaired by providing ASL monitors and IR/RF personal audio receivers (for those with reduced hearing). I'm not hearing impaired and find the ASL monitors at the Legacy theatre and Conference Center etc distracting to the program. My guess is that...

I bought 3 "broken" camcorders (Cannon ES8400V = Samsung SCW71) from ebay. I picked this one because it is small, has a nice picture and I figured out how to tap into the zoom, focus and menus. I bought some tilt and pan assemblies from a surplus electronics place and programed a 8bit uC to control ...

special FM groups

It surprises me that the Wasatch Front areas haven't coordinated and put together a few teams that go from stake to stake with a setup comprising of remote control video cameras, video mixer, RF transmitter, RF receiver, projectors, screens that they set up for stake conferences. As it is now, each ...

rights

Yes, I'm aware of the copyrights. That was something that I didn't mention in my original posting but that is a detail that would have to be worked out. I also know that some of the hymns have copyrights held by the authors, not the church. Having them on a website for downloads as mp3 would make it...

Hymns in parts with words for download

I know that the church has the hymns on line where you can click on the part (SATB) that you want to hear to help people learn their singing parts. I think these are MIDI based. It's pretty cool but not useful for me. I'd like hymns that I can download and sing on my way to and from work everyday. I...
