Re: LCR - Send message function - texting

Agreed russellhltn, It is a bit of a hassle to get permission from ward members before adding them to the remind system. But that reminded me of another feature I forgot to mention in my previous post: - If a user wants to stop receiving text messages they simply reply with a text that says "LE...

Re: LCR - Send message function - texting

Texting the entire ward - fact or fiction?

Would love to get some clarity on this topic from someone who knows how these systems work. I've heard a couple "secrets" about how to text everyone in the ward: [list=]If you have Wi-Fi Calling enabled on your iPhone, LDS Tools will use iMessage to send your texts and you can successfully...

Re: Mass Texts

Our Ward is running into all the issues I just read about in this thread, so we've started to look for a 3rd party option.

Re: Baptism and Conformation Certificate Not Sizing Correctly

I'm seeing the same issue.
It must be some kind of a regression in the code base that will be need to be fixed by one of the programmers at Church headquarters.
