Do you think that behavior is intentional? It seems like an oversight if you can't print the check IF you do upload the receipts.

Re: Printing checks without approval

From what I remember, if you enter the expense into LCR without receipts, e.g. the receipts are paper (not uploaded or digitized), you AND the counselor will have to be at the ward's computer to authorize the printing of the check because the counselor needs to see the paper receipts. That isn't co...

Upload signature card?

Has anybody had success in the past month uploading a signature card into LCR? I always getting the spinning wheel of death forever. I've tried probably 7-8 times over the past 6 weeks. I should note, I have used the feedback option on the bottom of the page about 3 times and the issue persists. Mak...

Re: Printing checks without approval

If you use MLS, you can print without any second person checking it but you need 2 signatures on the check. I hear that MLS expenses will go away in October for our stake. Using expenses feature in LCR: If you upload the receipts into LCR, a counselor can do the second approval (remotely, whenever t...

Re: Online Expense Reimbursement Request Form

Here's our workflow. This could plug in pretty easily, but the email-only approach seems to be working for us.

Re: LCR - Send message function - texting

I should add, I think with Groupme you can have a group number. Not everyone has to use the app and can choose to receive messages as SMS message. One down side to apps is you may end up with group communication rather than one-way communication with no reply ability. I've never had a need to look i...

Re: Out of Unit Baby Blessing Best Practices

There's also a comment about restricting birthdays and age visibility in order to meet privacy laws. I assume these are possibly European laws and not the United States? We publish birthdays in our ward, I wonder if we should stop doing that. (Our ward is in the United States.) This also applies in...

Re: Out of Unit Baby Blessing Best Practices

(Why don't they send out info to clerks that these changes are happening? It would be good to know in advance.) The LCR 4.5 Release Notes from May 6, 2019 mention adding the ability to upload parental consent forms for baptisms. I suspect more recent release notes discussing parental consent forms ...

Re: Out of Unit Baby Blessing Best Practices

Interestingly, LCR has recently changed to require a "Child of Record" form be uploaded to create the record and record the blessing. A "Baptism and Confirmation" form is similarly required for recording baptisms now; even for 8 year old members of record that are BIC and baptiz...
