DNS

Does it matter which DNS addresses I use? I have been setting all church computers to static IP addresses, but I can't decide which DNS IPs to use. Some use the DNS from the ISP, while others use a Google DNS. Does the Church have DNS servers?

Where is the tax summary statement?

I received the following message on the stake MLS, but cannot find this statement.

An important document is posted in FINANCES > FINANCE STATEMENTS > ANNUAL CHARITABLE CASH CONTRIBUTIONS OFFICIAL TAX SUMMARY STATEMENT
requiring your immediate attention.

Re: W5 audit forms

I have verified that the live stake MLS has the W6/S6 forms installed. Thanks for the explanation. It does make sense that these forms would only be updated by a Send/Receive, which we cannot do with the test data.

Re: W5 audit forms

When I do a fresh install of MLS 3.5.1_21247 on a test system, and import test unit 108, I see the old W5 form in MLS. If I remember correctly, even the live stake clerk's computer has the old forms. I will check that again in a couple hours.

Auxiliary budgets

From the few stake and ward budgets I have seen so far, the estimated expenditures for auxiliaries are usually all zero. In other words, most units do not set a budgeted amount for auxiliaries. They spend whatever they need, and as long as the balance for the entire unit doesn't go negative, nobody ...

Re: Send a Message to Everybody in the Stake or Ward

Our stake president has an interesting habit, especially when he is out of town. He simply forwards e-mails to the rest of the stake presidency without comment. Sometimes they require immediate action. We often look at each other and try to figure out among ourselves who is going to take the action ...

Re: Cleaning out the clerk's office

My complaint about backups is that they never verify where the backups are written. Many clerks leave the USB flash drive inserted, and simply assume MLS is writing the backup files to the flash drive without setting the backup destination. Another complain is that they do not remove old financial s...

Re: W5 audit forms

The W6 and S6 forms are definitely available for download from LUFAS -- I just got them from there. I have MLS 3.5.1_21183 on a test system for the training units, and the audit forms it displays are W5 and S5 from December 2008. MLS 3.5.1_21247 appears to have audit forms dated March 2012, but no v...

Re: W5 audit forms

That is what I thought our AAA told us when he addressed our bishopric training meeting last October. However, when I open the audit forms in the stake MLS, I only see the W5 version. I will need to check again.

Thanks much

Re: Cleaning out the clerk's office

My ward was formed in March 2005, and has had several ward clerks. The current ward clerk reports that he still has paperwork from the beginning of the ward.
