identifying problems

Yet again today there was a long stretch where the church websites were unavailable if a login was required. Go to log in for LCR, the seminary site, directory or maps and the login screen freezes and eventually the message website down for maintenance appears. This problem usually happens roughly b...

Re: Ward Maps

We are trying to provide an emergency preparedness map for our ward to show household member locations. This works for most but some do not work. For example we have 8 households in a trailer park which live on different streets inside the trailer park. The household address all start with 2021 Mah...

Re: Advice for Moving Records

I had decent luck with a web site called Spokeo about 5 years ago. We paid for just 3 months and worked hard to try all the unknown names. It got lots of null results and old results and names that there were simply to many options for but it also solved about a dozen that weren't working any other ...

Re: Scheduled maintenance closings

Another question on roughly the same topic. Is the shutting down of functions like directory, ward maps etc on Sunday for maintenance an indication of system overload or are they actually doing system maintenance on Sun? It is the day I most use those functions typically so I really would like to su...

Re: LCR access for person with 2 callings

There is a yellow box in the center just below the LCR menu choices that lets you change callings. I have 2 callings with radically different permissions. The user with multiple callings clicks the down carat(down arrow) at the end of the yellow box and they can change what calling LCR uses for perm...

Be aware you need to be able to call church headquarters to do this. You have to reset the security token for MLS with any install before you can use it.

Re: Advice for Moving Records

This is one of the toughest parts of being clerk. In some wards you get good help from the ward council. But in normal wards you will get very little help and most of it will come from the RS. Just keep trying. There are several ways to do this. Asking for help, talking to individual leaders,(best l...

Found out today that our firewall is blocking the ability to download software as well as updates including things like Open Office and Libre Office that the church has told us to use on the family history computers but I can get to it on the clerk's computer Is this true for everyone?

Re: Emergency Plan

We took the tabs up to 16 0 added to count in some, 1. ward info, 8. changes from signs to other info. 9. forms added, 10 communications added and 16 becomes signs because it needs to be the end of the notebook or it hides tabs. 0. Bishops information only in bishopric and church building notebooks....

"Send a Message" Function on LCR

Request that the send message confirmation email include a list of names that the message went to. It would be nice to be able to check back and be sure I didn't miss anyone. Don't need email address simply a list of names. As the sender I had access to those names so including a list of who it went...
