Re: Special Guidelines for Building Cleaning WRT Covid virus

I'd second the suggestion to connect with the High Councilor assigned to building support. He should definitely be aware of exactly what the local FM Group has put in place, and if not, he needs to become aware and then let you know! I imagine that although general guidelines exist, with the differe...

Re: Virtual Sunday School

I can only speak for our Stake. I believe all our units are just using a password instead of the waiting room feature. And from what I'm aware, we're all publishing the links and the passwords on our public FB pages (as well as any text/email outreach), and asking the missionaries to share this info...

Re: IROP - Internal Record of Purchase

It's really easy to miss the little pdf icon, I've had a clerk tell me it wasn't there on his account -- he just missed it :)

Re: District high councilors?

I'm thinking there must be some official guidelines the Mission President uses when organizing Districts (calling District Counselors, calling District Councilors, etc). Of course even if it's just printed, it may not be generally available. Interestingly, the Church still has their Branch Guidebook...

Re: Counting those attending broadcast in attendance numbers

Thanks for that update, I see it as well on LCR today, along with the previous blurb about Quarterly Reports being auto-generated from 2019 data. Looks like things are slowly syncing up regarding this... :)

Re: Recording Sacrament meeting

I see the same info on LCR today, along with the previous info about the Quarterly Reports still being generated from 2019 data. I imagine the usefulness of this data will depend on the existing interest of local leaders in tracking detailed member participation in whatever their sacrament meetings ...

Re: Counting those attending broadcast in attendance numbers

I do not see this email in the Official Communications link (even when selecting "All"). Was it only sent to clerks and nobody else? We have not been recording sacrament meeting attendance as I had not been made aware of this change. I suppose it may be time to ask our clerk to share this ...

Re: Would signupgenius.com be safe for Church use?

In my previous Ward, I set up "youcanbook.me" and it worked well. Note that if you use this year-to-year, you cannot re-create a trial account using that same email, so another email would have to be used subsequently (not saying that's what anyone should do to get around the free trial li...

Re: Ministry: Secretary assigned to a District

I think we all need to accept the reality that the Church has allocated certain resources for these efforts, and they are overloaded with items that need their attention. We've all been in situations like that where it's all we can do to simply check our task box and move on to the next requirement,...

Re: custom OTHER accounts for online tithing slip

I agree that there's a wild variety of custom situations that any Bishop could determine justifies a separate "Other" category, but the intent and use of those funds is very different between cases. And donations are freely given without any fixed requirements on how they are used (at leas...
