Re: Members without callings list in LDS tools

How you define personally identifiable information is different person to person. Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is a legal term that has undoubtedly been defined by law and the courts. How much is too much is likely as much local law as anything else. Unlike the Handbook, it's not somet...

Re: Members without callings list in LDS tools

it seems reasonable to me to use a tool where no other church provided tool is available.) That's not going to fly if something goes wrong and the lawyers are unleashed. The real question is how much is too much. I don't have an answer for that. But putting personally identifiable information about...

Re: Members without callings list in LDS tools

If you don't have high turnover with people moving in/out, you could manage this in a Google Doc and then monitor your Move IN/OUT reports to keep a list up to date. (Yes, I know there are guidelines about using external systems. If the data is stripped of as much personal info as possible, it seems...

Re: Cashing reimbursement checks - Walmart

I had a member tried cashing a church provided reimbursement check at Walmart and when they ran it through their system, they said that they could not cash the check. Is this correct that locations such as Walmart cannot cash the reimbursement checks? This is an issue because the member is a Missio...

Re: Past Holders of Callings and Positions in the Ward

This same question came up this weekend as we rotated 17 callings on Sunday. My wife got released and before they offered her a new calling, she was concerned she was going to end up back in an organization she has spent much of the last 15 years in. With a new bishopric, they wouldn't know and coul...

Re: LCRF Expense Reimbursement Bug

I saw something similar yesterday. I had to try 5 times to get an expense entered and completed. The fourth try resulted in the expense appearing in the "without receipts" section. I rejected it and then deleted it on the "Pending" tab. The fifth try was successful. Did you dele...

Re: Access denied

I understand there is a lot going on here, but as someone who has done engineering for 30+ years, when you have lots of inter-related pieces involved in a problem, leaving it to the individual teams to try to resolve is very inefficient. You need a concerted effort from many areas to get to the roo...

Re: Electronic Reimbursement - Approval Process

I know it was once stressed to auditors that the bishop must approve each expense before any funds are spent, and especially before expenditures are reimbursed. That approval may be verbal, which complicates the verification of the auditor. The new online process for EFT reimbursement does not requ...
