Views: 1424

The number of members with a temple recommend is automatically populated in the ward's Quarterly Report, at least it is for all the wards in my stake. I can't imagine why it wouldn't be for your stake. Not anymore. The field is blank and no longer automatically updates. Will this get a request thro...

Doesn't the quarterly report to the stake self-populate from the actual home-teaching visits reported divided by the total actual households? Yes, it does. But, you can directly change the number of families visited on the report. This allows the report to be sent even if the HT/VT visits have not ...

When a check is made out to our bishop, he normally just writes Pay to [ ] Ward and signs it. Then the clerks stamp it and enter it as a regular donation from the check writer.

The banks have never fussed about that. And yes, the member is asked not to do it.

We have two deacons. The Young Men advisors recommended and the bishopric approved a hand picked a set of about five families for each of them and that became the route. [grin]

"Indiv ID" and "HofH ID" ... How permanent are these within a ward MLS system? I know of no documentation. And I would not be surprised if those IDs were rewritten any time the indexes were rebuilt with a backup and restore. You might want to try that with the test data base. Load a group of famili...

What do the computers have to do with your decision to have an Internet connection? We are not willing to spend the money for a memory upgrade and wireless equipment for 14 computers. In addition, the stake budget will not support the cost of internet service to buildings away from the stake center...

Has the death date been recorded on the membership record and the record sent to CHQ?

Even so, this may or may not solve the problem. I have noticed that members who move to address unknown still get broadcast messages from LUWS.
