I agree. That is the biggest headache when maintaining the ward calendar. Count my vote too.

Our Ward is making use of the word processor and spreadsheet as well. Though it's not used often, I'd still list it as essential. If OO was pulled, then we'd need something else. I agree. We don't use the office software very often but we do use it from time to time. We've written letters, printed ...

Your first report is already something I plan on doing. I've got the template...just need to code it. Your second report idea is a fantastic idea. What do you think the report would have on it? Tom I think the follow-up report could be very similar to the weekly report except it would list people t...

This is very interesting to me and looks like a great idea. In the past we have tried to assign out missionary exchanges 6 mths to a year in advance. It would be nice to have it entered in the calendar ahead of time. Having the missionary meals on the calendar is a nice touch. Sometimes we have a me...

I agree that documentation is the key to good management of all aspects of the project. You need good documentation in order to define the scope of the current phase and to measure change requests against. You need documentation that helps define your communication plan which helps identify the true...

I agree that it would be helpful to see who has logged in and when and what they saw when they were there. It is hard to measure the usefulness of our "Use the Ward Website" campaigns.

I'm not sure if this is the most appropriate way to do this but we had a push to gather everyone's email address. This started with the ward leadership and then went to the Relief Society and Priesthood. Then I pulled everyone's member number and confirmation date and registered them on the site. Th...

I have been maintaining the ward website for 5-6 years now and it is a challenge to keep everything updated. It would be nice to have it automatically updated. I really can't think of any of the sections where I wouldn't want it to be automatically updated other than the "Other" section. T...

This would be a great tool. We've exported ward lists and imported them into mapping software running on the Bishop's laptop. It never quite worked right. Keeping things in synch was difficult and we still needed to touch every contact to make it usable. We were trying to use it for home teaching ro...
