Realizing this will sound offensive and paternalistic, it is not meant that way so please accept this with good intentions. You've left out the single most important aspect of callings: relying on the Spirit. The Bishop doesn't make a calling, the Lord does. Without a confirmation of the Spirit in d...

I just got mine last week as well so give it until Friday and if you haven't heard anything, I'd call the magazine department.

I got a reply email with "REMEDY" in the subject so this is great news that they're taking feedback and acting on it.

I'm glad there's a way to update the location in this new version. Our building has been shown on the wrong street for years, even though we have tried two or three times to get it corrected by contacting CHQ.

some units just put the DNC in either the phone number and/or address fields. We've been adding people to lists like others have described here but this is the best solution I've seen; it conveys to everyone using the abbreviated address list whether or not they should call or write to a particular...

What's taking so long?

This has been requested since MIS - before MLS was released. :eek: I know some units are using custom fields to hold individual cell phone and email addresses. Then they have to create custom reports to show the fields. I know others that keep everything in separate spreadsheets in various unit auxi...

I’ve found the easiest thing for me is making a list from the csv export. The attendance sheet is for the quarter. I used to sort by age to get just the adults but then started asking "how long since this YM or YW was here?" and such so now I just include everyone, including primary kids. Our clerk ...

Move Restriction vs Request for Contact

I just spoke with CHQ and got the following definitions while placing one on a membership record: ⋅ Request for Contact notes a membership record to have a new bishop call when records are moved in, regardless of which unit requests or sends the record. ⋅ Move Restriction require...

Thanks; I've never been able to find someone who could tell me how to get a map. I just called for our unit. Don't use ext 23500 though because they will transfer your call. Just wait for an operator and ask for the "Boundaries and Maps" dept.

It really shouldn't take "forever" to do the send/receive even on dial-up. Our average send and receive is ten minutes on dial-up. We've tried combinations of s&r to see if we could streamline the process. For example, s&r before Sunday meetings so the tithing s&r goes faster. Nope. We tried s&r of...
