Re: Changes to rules, learned in Audit

As an Assistant Area Auditor, as soon as I hear about audit changes like this, I try to get the word out. Most often changes clarify existing policies or procedures that are stated in the Handbooks. However, the existing written materials may not say it clearly. Changes in audit questions seem to be...

Re: Audit - new bishopric

Another reason to audit early. The audit department can waive an audit when there has been a change in leadership recently. However, it IS a wonderful teaching opportunity. The new bishop can learn a lot early in his tenure.

Local disaster relief

I have been asked about what Church policies affect the use of Church accounts when members in a stake want to provide donations that would be transferred to a ward impacted by the natural disaster. Is it appropriate to collect funds through either online donations or donations to one's own ward or ...

Nonmember listed in MLS Members without Callings report

MLS allows you to print a report showing members who do not have callings. (Organizations >> Reports/Tools >> Members without Callings) Whilst looking at the printout this morning, I noticed that a man who is not a member of the Church (but who has a record number -- presumably one of those 'adminis...

The other thing missing in the panel (along with the link for seminary and institute info) is the link for Church audits. Gee, I guess that means the Church is doing away with audits! Right? :) By the way, my stake is NOT (at least has not been in the past and no one said anything recently) a beta t...

After marriage, who decides where records go?

We recently had a sister in our ward who was sealed in the temple. The temple recorded the sealing. And then her records were moved out of our ward to her husband's ward -- apparently automatically. Or at least we didn't send her record. The problem was that instead of her moving into his ward, he i...

Okay, I'm baffled. After the last post I did another send/receive. Again there was the message about upgrading to 2.9.4. Now the confidential forms link is there again in the "Other Resources" panel. But still nothing for seminary and institute.

MLS 3.0 Issue: Other Resources missing

When I did a send/receive this afternoon there was a message that 2.9.4. was being installed. We already had 2.9.4 installed. After rebooting (as instructed), the first thing I noticed was that in the "Other Resources" tab, the links for seminary/institute was gone. At least I think that's what was ...

What is the 'rule' for assigning YM to Boy Scouts

While trying to verify that members had been properly assigned to organizations, quorums and classes, I noticed that only a couple of our Young Men were showing up assigned "Boy Scouts" (Criteria = Organization Class is Boy Scouts"). When I opened a young man's individual record who was not on the r...
