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...

Re: Fundraiser income

That's interesting, I've always assumed that the YW or YM Presidents in the past have been the ones collecting fundraiser donations, but perhaps I've just not noticed that it's always a Bishopric member (assuming fundraising donations are included in this category of tithes and other offerings). Of ...

Re: Reporting sacrament mtg. attendance during a natural disaster

I would personally think that even in locations where a decision had been made to do something like only hold sacrament meeting but not the second hour class, your local Priesthood leaders may give you discretion to enter a zero for sacrament meeting attendance. It would be unfortunate to be negativ...

Re: Ministering Tool

I am the elders quorum secretary and someone was previously able to create companionship with married couples (my wife and I are companions), but I am not able to create additional husband/wife companions. Sisters do not appear on the list of companions. Did you try the previous suggestion of selec...
