Re: Is it appropriate to encourage online payment of fast offerings and tithing if possible?

We are in a Utah ward and no longer have deacons go around to houses. We encourage online donation or in person donation to a bishopric member. Having members already doing online donations made it really easy to adjust to electronic reimbursements. I know some bishops worry about taking away a deac...

Re: Email to Someone No Longer in the Ward

We have a family that moved from our ward 5 years ago, and the records where transferred at that time. However, when we send an email to the current members of the ward, they are still receiving the email. I have confirmed that their names are not in the directory, and also searched the ward list f...

Re: Missionary -> Serving; missing someone?

In the online missionary recommendation system his does show him in the MTC and does list a mission and start/end dates. What does it show for the ward? I'm wondering if they're showing up in a different ward. I think there's home ward and financial ward. Looking at the finances, the payments are b...

Re: Tracking keys; what do you do?

They track a key ring with a bundle of keys and that key ring is assigned to a calling. They know who has the calling and thus who should have the keys, but the clerks really don't know what keys each person has and the clerks don't really know what the keys go to. If it were my job, I'd go this ro...

Re: Payment Request menu in LCR Finance

If I'm following this thread correctly, there's still some muddied waters regarding what exactly this "Prior Approval" of the Bishop actually entails ("Expenses must be approved by the stake president or bishop before they are incurred"). My understanding is that a Bishop approv...

Tracking keys; what do you do?

I'm responsible for tracking keys for our ward. It is.... like entropy. It is like herding cats. It is like catching leaves as they fall from a tree. We just switched buildings and I've now seen how the other ward was tracking their keys compared to us. I try to track by individual keys and who has ...

Re: December expenses showing in January budget report.

Editing an item will also trigger it to draw off of this year's numbers. Another user here suggested wards have a budget category called 'previous years expense' so that you can move previous years expenses to that category and not mess up your budget for this year (e.g. having to pad it, etc).

Re: Sacred Funds, Sacred Responsibilities video

Thanks for the help all. We were caught off guard with the new audit question pertaining to this video. Does anyone have citation to an official communication or other letter detailing the requirement? It's troubling that we have an audit question about a new policy that is not documented anywhere....

Missionary -> Serving; missing someone?

We have a missionary that left in January that is missing on the app under Missionary and then Serving. He's likely still in the MTC. If I look the same info up on the directory on the website on my PC in chrome, his name does not have a mission under it and if I click his name he does not have an a...
