Re: Ward boundaries outside your stake.

I sincerely hope nobody ever gets the bright idea to remove the "obsolete" Classic LDS Maps, and I even once submitted this feedback via the official tools. The functionality available there is helpful in so many different ways. Sometimes just for fun (I wonder what my son's current ward l...

Re: Change in Recording Sacrament Meeting Attendance

This request may be part of the "return and report" principle, based off what's in GHB 18.9.1, which contains much instruction including "All who participate in preparing, blessing, and passing the sacrament must receive approval from him or someone under his direction." I can im...

Re: Protecting Children and Youth - in Spanish

Kevin, if I go to the website for "Protecting Children and Youth" https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/callings/church-safety-and-health/training-and-video-resources/youth-protection?lang=eng and then click to launch the training, there's a language button in the upper-right corner, which h...

Re: Reported Post

I appreciate this discussion. Our smaller unit was finally ready to get Circles going right when the shutdown occurred, so we still don't have any real usage yet. But it's quite helpful to share this, to broaden understanding of how things work, and hopefully be prepared ourselves.

Re: Zoom Account for Bishops and Leaders

I agree that this is what Budgets are for (especially since while the guidelines are in place many organizations won't be using their Budget money for weekly activities). Our Branch last week paid $15/month for a Zoom account. One benefit of this is that the Zoom account is now available Branch-wide...

Re: Is it possible to exclude members from lists within "Send a Message" function?

I'm assuming said member enjoys receiving other Church mass emails, but just not from a specific organization either because of content or frequency? Or is the Primary the only one sending mass emails, and if another organization like RS/EQ started sending mass emails with the same frequency, they'd...

Re: Sustaining with No Meetings?

It's never clear how much unified practice there is between Areas, even in the US. Our Area Presidency has indicated the same as others, that for callings "essential for moving forward the work of salvation", sustaining and releases may be done virtually. We haven't done that yet, but if w...

Re: Request: Member email preference management from LCR

I think there may be two different categories of "user complaints". One is "I don't want emails from you guys", the second is "You guys are sending too many emails and it's bothering me". Any member can log onto their church account and delete their email address if the...

Re: Is there a way to get the app if you don't have a phone?

I don't find this much different from other tech-enhanced communication methods implemented by local Youth leaders, albeit this is an official Church app. I've often found that whether it's group texting, WhatsApp, FB pages, or any other way leaders engage with youth using the Tech they identify wit...
