Re: How do you create the PDF of the ward directory?

http://wkhtmltopdf.org/ is one tool that you can use in your code to do this. Thank you. This one I liked. I played with it for a short time and it looks like it works great. Note to other readers: This solution provides a precompiled binary that will work on windows. You will have to download the ...

Re: How do you create the PDF of the ward directory?

I think JD thought you were wanting to make a PDF of church data, not just an understanding of the technology behind the process. You are correct. I am looking for instruction in the methodology of how one would do this. I did find a white paper that described using a PDF library combined with a La...

Re: How do you create the PDF of the ward directory?

The PDF is created in part using an API, or more than one APIs, to access the data from the Church servers. The distribution of APIs is limited to officially sanctioned projects. So, this is a custom solution to create the PDF? I was hoping that you are using an off-the-shelf API to create the PDF ...

How do you create the PDF of the ward directory?

My boss wants to create a website that will create a PDF (printable) copy of some of the data. I know that church does exactly what I want to do in the printing of the ward directory. I have searched the internet and find a lot of information but none of it seems to relate directly to what the churc...

Using Social Media In Your Calling

I know that I used Facebook to get the word out about baptisms when I was WML. I see how my wife uses Facebook as Compassionate Service Leader to organize meals, etc. What is your opinion/take on using these sites? Would it be useful for the church to provide its own version of FB for member use? I ...

I got it to work with the Other Location. What I noticed this time was, once I got a conflict message for one even, that message never really cleared. I am running Firefox on Linux and that may be the cause of the error. I just don't know. But I do now have my building cleaning schedule on the calen...

I did try suggestion 2. However, there are several stake events at that location, so I got a conflict there. I think the right way to go is idea 1. Which calling/person would ordinarily have the rights to add a location? I didn't see anyway to add an event without a location, is that right? My only ...

None Conflicting Calendar Events (Building Cleaning Calendar)

I have seen this in the calendar, but I think I just don't have the rights to create an all day event that will not conflict with other events. Here is what we are trying to do. We want to put the building cleaning calendar on the new lds.org calendar. I want it to show as an all day event from Sun-...
