CUBS Balances

Has anyone else noticed problems with CUBS balances? Our September bank statement showed we had a positive balance and everything reconciled with MLS.

Slow Updates post-CUBS

I sent an MLS message to Salt Lake on the same thing. I worried it was just my machine for a while. It was taking an inordinate amount to click on an expense item before the edit screen would open. The save time was just as frustrating. Task manager showed javaw.exe was eating up 98% of my system re...

I actually have more immediate questions for this transition. 1. How will the budget be provisioned in this first quarter? Will we receive funds based on previous quarterly reports? 2. What happens to the budget monies we were projecting through the end of this year? Will the stake write a check for...

Stake Budget Control

Having been both a stake and ward clerk for years, I am amazed at the fear I sense in the stake "losing strict control" over ward budgets, from a desire to circumvent or manipulate the percentage system being designed to an ability to seize control of excess ward funds at the end of the ye...

I have often used the free version of DAP to tap into 5 connections at once without a problem. I have not seen anything on the web site or in these discussions that limit how many connections you might make. Using an app like DAP is useful when you are downloading the 100+ meg MLS app. A moderator m...

You are right about the instruction in the hymnbook allowing for the congregation to stand.
