Re: Kickstarter?

Section 13.2.8 of Handbook 2 (https://www.lds.org/handbook/handbook-2-administering-the-church/activities?lang=eng#13.2.8) talks about funding for church activities. Church activities are to be funded from budget funds. There are specific exceptions for certain types of camps, but only 1 per year fo...

Re: Bishopric Yearly Financial Training

Question 3 of the outdated (W6) ... has been replaced on the current (W7) ward/branch audit checklist. It is no longer a "formal" audit question. Just to note, the question does appear again as a formal audit question. It is question three in the Procedure Review and Risk Assessment secti...

Re: Jan to June financial audit

I will generally accept anything that he has already signed, but also something in my box that was mailed to his address (since he obviously put it or had it put there) and things the counselors or ward clerk give me after I ask them if he has authorized it. I've talked with the bishopric about the ...

Re: Problem with transfer to another Unit, 3.7.1 Update

I had that problem in our stake as well. I called LUS and they first told us that both units had to be on the upgraded version, and had to have done a Send/Receive since updating, as they were recording who was on which version and using that to determine what other units you could transfer to. I di...

Re: wrong amount expenses encoded

Do you mean that the check was for the wrong amount, or that there were multiple accounts the check was written against, and one or more of them had the wrong amount? If the check was for the wrong amount, you either need to cut an additional check (if too little was paid) or you treat it like an ad...

Re: New style of deposit bags

We have those style bags. The only thing we do different is on the lower section we fill in the Unit # next to Unit, and the unit name next to From, like in the top section. We don't fill in anything for the To field.

Re: new bishop, new clerk

If you go to store.lds.org and sign in, there will be a Unit Materials section (provided your calling has been synchronized). In that is a Donation Envelopes and Stationary section that will have personalized stationary and envelopes.

Re: Urgent Task -- Not

I am both a stake and ward finance clerk for the moment, with the stake managing a recreational property, and so I have three units I sign into regularly on two separate computers. I have noticed on the stake MLS, it will list an urgent task every time I sign in with a task stating that a backup has...

Re: Save As PDF Functionality

The Church has the CutePDF print driver available for download on its software download site. You can talk with your Stake Technology Specialist, as he's the one who should do the installation, though he may be fine with you doing it yourself. There are a number of MLS reports online right now in th...

Re: Online Permission Slips & Registration Forms

I volunteer with a youth soccer organization, and one of the things we have found out is that not all hospitals are willing to accept an electronic signature for medical release forms. You need to be especially careful, and should check not only that the nearest hospital to any place you are visitin...
