Possible bug in MLS Donations

This morning an update ran to MLS. When I was processing donations today, I realized after I went to the reconciliation screen that I had accidentally entered a check in as cash.

While it is a best practice not to allow users to have local admin rights, MLS does not support it. It sounds to me like you are trying to solve a training problem with restrictive technology. "HR" problems are best solved by training and consequences for acting against the policy. The peo...

Multiple Missions on a Membership Record

Is it possible to record multiple missions in a membership record? I had this request from a senior member of our ward who served as a young man and recently returned from serving with his wife.

...[Y]ou should change the category names before doing the transfers, but you should make sure the new names don't seem too strange to the donors who still might see them on their statements. I believe the statement will not itemize amounts in the AMFA category and they will simply show up as "...

LibreOffice

I would hope that the recommendation to use OpenOffice.org be amended to use LibreOffice instead. Most of the OpenOffice.org developers forked the project when Oracle bought Sun and new development has continued at http://LibreOffice.org

How I Enter Donations

I am a fan of using the mouse as little as possible for data entry. All of this has been said before, but I want to put it in order. Here's what I do: Start typing donor name and then use Up and Down arrow keys when I think I'm within about five names of the donor I am looking for. Press Tab to get ...

I got a message dated June 30th informing me, the Financial Clerk, that Internal Records of Purchase (IROPs) will be delivered electronically from now on. It also says that I should review the IROPs. I have never seen anything called an IROP before. I searched the Wiki and this forum and can't find ...

My Stake Technology Specialist insisted on setting up individual accounts on our new Windows 7 machine. The directive came from the Stake President who insist on separate accounts for each authorized computer user because the report of blocked websites from the Church firewall apparently will show t...
