Re: Reports on Time Served in Callings

We just use the 'Members with Callings' list under Organizations in LCR. While reviewing the list it's pretty easy to quickly estimate how long a person has been serving by the sustained date. You can click the "sustained" column header to sort by that date to scan the list by longest serv...

Re: YW and YM Attendance Decline 2018

Did you have a change in callings that may mean the person counting is a different person? When I took over as a clerk, I realized the ward was reporting averages for the quarter and not the attendance in the last month of the quarter. So, for me to change to follow the guidelines meant previous num...

Re: Access calendars from another stake?

That shows my stake buildings. I am trying to access the calendar for a building in another stake that we use because we were blessed with a small building that doesn't handle all our activities. The calendar admin of that stake would need to share that building/location with your stake. Until they...

Re: Annual ward history template?

I use pictures in our history and don't try to get permission slips. I know there are plenty here that will disagree with me and quote the handbook. Nobody has ever said boo to me about the photos. Maybe they are stripping them out later. In my opinion, in the days of selfies and social media, if yo...

Re: Member Calling History?

The YW classes were all collapsed into a single class which thus removed everyone from their callings. Clerks were asked to recreate the classes and assign the callings. There was a message on the home page of LCR about this change (which was upcoming at the time) and it suggested clerks download a ...

Re: Change in Recording Sacrament Meeting Attendance

I hope the programmers drop all zeros from their formula when they calculate the average for the quarterly report. I'm trying to think of a scenario where a 0 would be a legitimate number to include the calculation for budget purposes....

Re: Sacred Funds, Sacred Responsibilities video

We had our local audit yesterday, and received an email 3 days prior from our auditor, with the request to meet and watch it together before the audit. So a somewhat-similar situation where local leaders were made aware of this requirement last-minute. We squeezed it in (fulfilling the letter of th...

Re: Sacred Funds, Sacred Responsibilities video

I wonder why this information isn't sent directly to the ward clerks rather than routing through the stake, or at least send it simultaneously to both.

Re: 18 YOs and New Youth Program

What is everyone's plan of attack with handling youth that are already 18 in this new youth program? We have one young man who turned 18 last fall. I gave him the option of getting a ring since he's on his way out. He said yes, so I sized him. But then I figured I guess he wouldn't really be doing ...

If this doesn't exist, this would be really helpful. Especially since the ward is putting in some of the funds for it.
