Re: Baptismal record

You may ask your current ward clerk to give you an Individual Ordinance Summary. The Individual Ordinance Summary shows the information that is on your church membership record and should include the name, gender, birth date and confirmation date of each of your children. Your son may do the same in...

Re: Missionary Accounts

I recommend that you first, print a summary showing the balances of all ward missionary accounts, and also print a detail income and expense report for each of the non-zero balance missionary sub-accounts and discuss them with your bishop. The bishop may want to encourage the supporters of the missi...

Re: Address auto-format

My ward is about 80% apartments. The address auto-format in LCR moves the "Apt xxx" portion of the address into the Street2 field. Some of the LCR reports (for example Members Moved In) do not show the Street2 field, which makes the report less useful if I don't override the auto-format. T...

Re: Improving Membership move unit determination

I guess I wasn't clear. What I want is for the church to provide a way for clerks to PERMANENTLY tell the church's Geographic Information System (GIS) that street address ABC is at GPS location XY, not where Google or Bing, or wherever else they get their Street Address to GPS mapping info from thin...

Improving Membership move unit determination

As a Ward Clerk, one problem that I've seen is that membership records with addresses or address ranges which are outside of my unit are repeatedly moved to my unit. Others on this forum have reported the same issue. Usually when I use LCR to move a membership record out to a known address, the web ...

Re: Left over mission money

To quote the bottom of the donation slip: "All donations to the Church's missionary fund become the property of the Church to be used at the Church's sole discretion in its missionary program." So it doesn't make sense to me for a member to request that their donation be "transferred&...

Destination Unit Lookup failure when moving membership out

When moving membership records out, if I enter an address formatted EXACTLY as the software expects (including zip+4), then the "Suggested format" is skipped AND the "Unit Where the Record(s) Are Moving" field is blank!! For example, I entered: [street deleted by timriker] Draper...

Re: Contact Previous Bishop

You can set the "Contact Prior Leader" flag to Yes when entering the move membership out transaction; or you can place a "Move Restriction" on the the member record which will prevent the record from being moved until the "Move Restriction" is removed. With a "Move...
