iCalendar standard

I think a more appropriate question is - Will future versions of the LUWS Calender be iCalendar compliant? I live in the UK, so I do not know how the current LUWS Calendar works, but if future a version were built using the iCalendar standard it would be possible for members to import it into Google...

Another site of worthy note is http://earlylds.com/ In this database we have endeavored to recognize these Latter-day Saints giving information about their lives and families, when and where their settlements were established and who lived and died in these then remote places. From Nauvoo, Illinois;...

Also not all areas of the world have LUWS. We've just completed our stake calendar and directory for 2009. Yes a small percentage will be out-of-date the moment it is published but it is a very useful/requested document that we produce.

Temple ride sharing / car pooling

I'm hoping the community will be able to help with a solution to help members arrange temple ride sharing. For many members that live a medium or long distance away from the Temple, it would be very helpful to be able to easily find out what other members in your local area are wanting or planning t...

In the past we have had permission to send recordings of stake conference for the members to view the following week. In April of this year we were issued with Polycom V500 units for the stake ...

My experience

When the beta of maps.lds.org was first released in June all the pins for the meetinghouses in the stake where I live, were sited near the centre of town and not on the meetinghouses themselves. So I clicked on the actual locations of the buildings and submitted feedback and eventually they have all...

I learned some time back about http://col.ldschurch.org but after trying to get in I found that it isn't available to clerks. Only to bishops and stake presidents. Stake Presidents can authorize access to the system for stake clerks. At least that is how it is in the Poole England Stake. Bishops do...

So far during the beta period, many, many people have submitted corrections which should soon be incorporated into the database, once they are verified. @ borenmt : How long do you anticipate it will take to review and verifiy the submitted corrections? I sumbitted corrections (June 23) for all the...
