Let's not forget goals and objectives

We need to continually ask ourselves what we are trying to accomplish. For example, whatever new features we think might be neat on the unit websites should be tied to something we are trying to accomplish. There are a lot of things that COULD be done, but should they? What will they accomplish? Wha...

Getting people to use the site -- especially seniors 50+

The web sites for seniors/technology I posted were just to the main page. Tom warned us about linking to areas inside a web site so I avoided it. The information is there. You just have to dig for it. In order to teach seniors tech skills so they will use the ward web site is no easy task. It is nai...

Teaching Seniors 50+ computer skills

So what are some techniques for teaching the older people in the ward? How can we show them the importance and ease for using the website? Here are some resources. It's the best I can put together in a short time frame. Ageless Learner http://agelesslearner.com/ Look under Adult Learning AARP http:...

Please post details from pending ward "tech" nights!

Someone suggested that you work through your ward activities committee / bishopric to have a "tech" night where people from the ward are invited to come to a meeting to learn how to use the unit web site, how to get an account, how to keep their information up to date. I, and others hopef...

Options

I would be nervous using custom software provided by a company that couldn't be used with other publishers. Many publishers offer great flexibility with the software that you use as long as they can convert your document into the format that they need for printing. By using a more standardized prod...

Eureka! At least I think so . . .

I hesitate to mention the following, largely because there are a number of accompanying issues that need to be checked out and thought out. I’ll do my best to cover what I know about. A few months ago, I read a New York Times article about a company called Blurb. I visited their site and thought “Eu...

I've encountered a feature that may work. . .

Another example, a family moves to a new ward - they can't see bishopric info or Elders info to help with moving because the records have not moved yet to the new ward. Related sorta - People Search - I'd like to be able to connect with members I knew in my ward three wards ago. Is there some way t...

OOPS! Didn't mean to spark a flame war . . .

From the concerns expressed by Tom/Administrator and some of you in other posts, it would appear that you think I'm implying that church leaders are not doing their job and/or I don't sustain them. I'm sorry if I conveyed that. Perhaps my frustration came out a little strong. I'll put my concerns in...

Frustration over ward leaders inaction

I discovered the unit web sites early on and have been very excited to see them really used. Unfortunately, that is not the case. The Bishop does not seem to consider it important. What is really frustrating is that all the necessary information gets done in hard-copy but only a handful of people ha...
