Re: Do Not Contact List/Visibility

The problem with the current tools is lack of flexibility. It seems like an 'all or nothing' approach. You can put them in their own ministering group or you don't. You lock their contact info on the directory, but it's still visible to leaders that have no context to that lock. In our example, we h...

Re: "Send a Message" Function on LCR

I send out a ward newsletter each week using Send a Message and it goes ti AOL, Gmail, MSN, and Hotmail among others and as far as I know, they are all receiving it. We're doing our sacrament program via email. The familysearch.org email address is the only one I've heard of not getting it. I use a...

Gas tax?

So, when we process reimbursements we can enter the sales tax which gets reimbursed to the church from the state (Utah). The sales tax does not count against our budgets (I called HQ and asked about that). However, with gas receipts we don't see any tax info. I'm guessing gas tax isn't treated the s...

Re: "Send a Message" Function on LCR

I also have Gmail, and I get email from ldschurch.org all the time. However, I don't think my leaders use "send a message" much. There's nothing in my spam folder. I'm wondering if the issue is the email of the person sending. Their domain may not allow the church to send emails on their ...

Re: Missionary account over payment

I had a bishop in our stake express concern about re-categorizing and asked if I, as the stake finance clerk, would call unit support. I did, and their answer was that it previously had been allowed, but the current policy is that the only option for excess funds are to return them to the Ward Miss...

Re: Transfer from Ward Missionary to Tithing

I had a bishop in our stake express concern about re-categorizing the donations to allow them to go to tithing or another fund and asked if I, as the stake finance clerk, would call unit support. I did, and their answer was that this had previously been allowed, but the current policy is that the o...

Re: Electronic Signatures on Reimbursement Forms

I have had several requests to move our paper-and-ink based reimbursement system to an electronic system. I worry that for audit purposes an electronic signature might not be allowed. Has anyone had experience with electronic forms and whether printed copies of the electronic forms (and signatures)...

Re: Automatic Payments

With the new tax law in the United States, automatic payments directly from my 401K would be a tax benefit for us that are on fixed income. If we could pay our tithing directly from the 401K to the church without going through my bank account it would be a great savings to me and others. Yes, there...

Re: "Send a Message" Function on LCR

By file size you mean of attachments or the message body? In either case these were small < 170KB. It's random email addresses. Seems we've had gmail users complain they didn't get the messages same as others. Yes, by file size I mean attachments. Email takes a lot of detailed information to diagno...
