Re: Can a priest assist with a setting apart

I find this (completing the circle) somewhat analogous to the GHB language for performing a baptism. The GHB specifically states certain conditions such as holding the person's right wrist with your left hand, placing the right hand high on the person's back, etc. However, if this is not done exactl...

Re: What is blocking the use of circles for your organization?

non members can now be part of the group I've got Gospel Living 1.7, and as mentioned previously, I can still only see members and callings as options to add to Circles. And I wouldn't be able to say if "adding non-members" is a technical issue they're working their way thru and we'll eve...

Re: Approval for LCR Expenses/Reimbursements

Expenditures must be approved by the stake presidency or bishopric before they are incurred. Expenditures should never be approved unless they are accompanied by supporting documentation. As you're new and will definitely encounter this, I'd also point out the apparent conflict here, in that you ca...

Re: Current year donations not showing

Obviously you want to get this resolved at the unit level, and the Year-end Tax Statement is another issue. But if you're just looking for verification of tithing paid for Tithing Settlement, it should be sufficient to pull up the Donations on your church account and look under "Recent Donation...

Re: LCR Check approvals

We absolutely need the ability to print checks before receipts are available Agreed, and Bishops are aware of those situations and assuredly are careful in verifying any check amount prior to printing. I think we may sometimes conflate "expense approval" with "receipt verification&qu...

Re: Ministering visit tracking software

Thanks for those quotes. I often find myself forgetting counsel given either in the GHB or in other formal settings like this. And while a local leader may well receive revelation that goes beyond anything "required" by Church HQ, it's important to always analyze why the baseline was estab...

Re: Member records randomly getting re-added

I've often wished for a "trace" capability when it comes to records being moved. I've seen occasions where I've contacted the previous listed unit for a new move-in, and they were essentially like "never met that member, no idea at all why those records moved". The trace would no...

Payment Request in Member Tools, access to all Stake?

I'm using Member Tools on Android, and when I click to create a new Payment Request, I find there's a dropdown that allows me to choose any unit in our Stake, and then any member in that unit. I don't have a Stake calling, so this surprised me, since in LCR I don't have this access. I haven't actual...

Re: How secure are conversations in circles?

Another side-aspect regarding security, is that (from what I understand) circle conversations like this are directly linked to the member's calling. So when somebody is released they won't have access to these conversations anymore, which is likely a good thing if you're concerned about confidential...
