MLS using the U.S National Grid?

JLRose said: I've been attempting to work with the built-in GEO Codes fields in MLS and figuring out what to put in there. This can be a daunting task, and has resulted in a short crash course on different types of mapping and ideas that others have used to GEO Code their Ward or Stake. I have come ...

Stock Contributions to Local Mission Fund

We have a case where a stock contribution from a member in another Stake was made to support a missionary from our Ward. The Stock contribution went to Salt Lake and I got a letter to the effect that it had been received. I don't know how to get the contribution associated with the proper local mis...

Using Budget Instead of Other

Just another piece of information about the relationship between "Budget" and "Other." The online help in MLS says: The "Other" category of your checking account is used for pass-through funds, those generally raised or collected to pay for goods or services. Examples a...

Stake Conference Report

Ivan said: Is there an official stake conference report form that needs to be completed before or after a stake conference? This is probably obvious, but the Officers Sustained Form for the stake should be filled out ahead of time for the first stake conference of the year and then read during that ...

Temple Recommend Permissions

WenU said: My concern is, given MLS 2.9 now includes two additional 'Rights' options, 'View Recommends' and 'Edit Recommends' and given that Admin Rights do not extend to 'Edit Recommends' - who is supposed to edit them, if not the Ward Clerk???? When stakes switch to the new recommends with a bar c...

Bill Payer Service

In answer to where the amounts go: 1. If you have a name and amount but not categories, you are supposed to contact the donor to find out which categories the amounts go to and complete a tithing slip for those amounts. 2. If you have amounts in categories but no name, complete a tithing slip with t...

July Financial Statement Errors

The July financial statements do indeed contain errors. To get the correct statement, remove the July statement from your copy of MLS (there is a "Remove" button). The next time you transmit, you should get the correct one over the wire.

Mls 2.9

The next beta version of MLS 2.9 may have been released this weekend. In that one, two administrators are allowed, and they are called "Out-of-Unit Administrators." These could be from the stake, the mission (for a branch), or from the administration office (for some international areas). ...

Changing Password in MLS

From the description of your role I presume you are some sort of Stake Administrator. There are stakes on MLS 2.9 beta, but it seems as if you would know if your stake was. MLS 2.9 does ask via a persistent popup that any user names not associated to actual member names, be changed so they do. The p...

Proper use of ward missionary funds

The MLS help file has financial policies. The one concerning funding missionaries says: Full time missionary couples (regardless of assignment), full-time single missionaries who are not serving proselyting missions, and those on Church-service missionary assignments are not affected by this equaliz...
