Re: MLS / How to transfer from "other" category into "budget"

This topic came up again last week when another clerk mistakenly recorded fund raising donations/money into a BUDGET category instead of the OTHER category. I went through and changed them all so the fund raising money is now in an OTHER category. At the beginning of the year, I setup the budget to ...

Re: MLS / How to transfer from "other" category into "budget"

I had this come up and our stake instructed me to write a check from the OTHER and deposit it in the bank into the BUDGET. That will work, but the auditor will have to spend some time making sure that wasn't a violation of policy. (A reimbursement instead of excess being shuffled to budget.) That's...

Re: MLS / How to transfer from "other" category into "budget"

Sorry to resurrect a dead post, but I need to do the exact same thing and the option that was given as a solution is not really an option. Everyone recommended editing the transfer to change the category from "budget: allocation" to "other: authorized member financed". Situation...

Yeah, I've seen that sometimes but I don't always see that doc. That's when I get stumped.

Re: Why prompted to print?

I guess my confusion is why it prints things without indicating WHAT has changed. Without telling me what has changed, the print out is meaningless. I was hoping someone would point out that maybe I'm just missing an asterisk next to the changed items or something visible like that for me to underst...

Why prompted to print?

MLS likes to prompt me to print a lot of things. I understand some of them (move ins, move outs) but often it prompts me to print a member's record and I can't tell why it is wanting me to print it. It doesn't seem to indicate that anything changed -- it just wants me to print it out. Then the bisho...

Re: New circle mask on directory photos

Does anyone put a 'logo' in the place of a photo, in case a member says, "I don't want a photo" or "I don't want any contact from the church"? I have used a couple of logos so that I don't 'bug' the members further. I have a member that called me down on that. Is it offensive? I...

Re: New circle mask on directory photos

I will say we have quite a few photos. I would guess 60%-70% have photos. The challenge with youth is they outgrow their photos. Maybe I'll ask the exec secretary to take a new photo as they come in for annual birthday interviews.

Re: New circle mask on directory photos

We REALLY need some help in the area of getting the members to take photos seriously. Some people don't want their photos on the website. And given the different privacy options for different countries, you probably can't force them. I don't think that's the main reason people don't do it. They hav...

Re: New circle mask on directory photos

If the circle mask will remain forced upon us, I agree that we need the option to reposition the circle. I'm not about to download a bunch of ward member photos from LCR just so I can re-upload them and crop them. But I'd still prefer to see the circle mask go away entirely. Downloading and uploadi...
