Re: export households from ward directory?

I have only seen speculation on the part of forum commenters that, in their opinion, "meetinghouse" policy should be construed to regulate leaders' use of "third party software" for that purpose on their own computers. No, I'm not suggesting that it limits in any way what softwa...

Re: export households from ward directory?

The way I read it, the new policy has no requirement that the stake president expressly approve any particular software not on the suggested list. True. And the new policy guidelines themselves are quite open-ended and permissive with respect to application software. Far from being focused on priva...

Re: export households from ward directory?

All of which is concerned entirely with managing meetinghouse software legally and parsimoniously, and having nothing to do with what we install and use on our own personal computers. I don't think anyone is claiming the policy dictates what we can install or use on our personal computers. The ques...

Re: export households from ward directory?

The ability of the stake president to autorize anything else came from the 2009 policy I linked to earlier. It's not clear if the new policy (which has no such provision) replaces the 2009 policy. (Yet another question.) The way I read it, the new policy has no requirement that the stake president ...

Re: export households from ward directory?

BTW, with respect to meetinghouse computers themselves, where does one find the current list of approved software? It used to be that there was a short list maintained by CHQ (Open Office/Libre Office, CutePDF, etc.), and stake presidents had the authority to supplement it locally. Is that still the...

Re: export households from ward directory?

Again, I find it odd they'd be so cautious on church machines but ignore what people do with data on their home machines. I can't help but feel that it's some kind of oversight. But there's other questions that document raises. I will be interesting to see what the response is. I don't think the au...

Re: export households from ward directory?

Further, if there is policy meant to apply so generally to members' and leaders' private computers, a document about "meetinghouse technology" is not where I would expect to find it. I agree, but it's not like its never happened before. Check out points 11, 12 and 13 on the 2009 Policies ...

Re: export households from ward directory?

The scope of that policy is expressly limited to meetinghouse computers: I understand your angle, but the question is why would they prohibit use of church data on third party apps on church computers, but be perfectly fine with using it on third party apps on member's machines where they have even...

Re: export households from ward directory?

The scope of that policy is expressly limited to meetinghouse computers: Scope 2.1 Worldwide: The meetinghouse technology policies defined in this document apply to all meetinghouses worldwide unless otherwise stated. The policy does not dictate what software leaders may or may not use on their own...

Re: export households from ward directory?

I'd also add that the Meetinghouse Technology Policy that came out this month says "4.8.3 The use of MLS data and membership information in third party software is prohibited." Third-party software is defined as "3.10 Third Party Software: Any computer software program that was not c...
