Baby appears in New Move-In Report

Sorry I'm a bit late getting around to this, but I've been out of town. Anyway, I think the report is probably working as designed. Although it is called a "New Move-In Report," It really is a report of any new records that have been added to your ward. These may appear when members move i...

Bishopric Meetings

In the Church Handbook of Instructions, Book 1, on pages 72-73, there is a chart of ward meetings, including your ward welfare meeting. One of the columns on the chart is "Participants." The ward clerk is listed as one of the participants in the Ward Welfare Committee Meeting. Now, having ...

Adult child on membership record

To add the child, you will need the birth date. It will help if you also have the child's confirmation date if the child is old enough to have been baptized and confirmed. On the Membership Records panel, click "Individual Record." Choose the parent from the list. On the left side of the M...

Sacrament Attendance figures in MLS

When I was ward clerk a few years back, I kept sacrament meeting attendance in a spreadsheet and then had the spreadsheet do the averaging for me. You should have a spreadsheet that came with MLS in the Open Office software.

Full-time Missionaries

Full-time missionaries serving from your ward should be counted as attending priesthood, but not as attending sacrament. For sacrament meeting, you count only the persons who are physically there.

Name Removal

You are correct in saying that the record of a person who has never been baptized can be canceled when that person turns 18 years old. Before that, MLS will not allow it. However, you must have permission from the stake president before cancelling the record. The MLS Help for the Cancel Member Recor...

Primary classes and 12-year-olds

The Church Handbook of Instructions says the same thing, that when they turn 12 they immediately begin attending their Aaronic Priesthood quorum meeting or Young Women class during Primary sharing time. However, during Sunday School they continue to attend the Primary Valiant 12 class until the end ...

Full-Time Missionaries

You do not count missionaries serving from your ward as attending your sacrament meeting, any more than you count a high councilman from your ward who is speaking in another ward. There is a simple rule to follow: If they are physically in your sacrament meeting, count them. If they are not, don't c...

Record number for a deceased nonmember

The numbers associated with nonmember parents are called "linked records" at HQ. They are not membership record numbers, but only represent a link to a member of the Church. As the other brother said, HQ can tell the difference. If you have nonmember parents with what looks like membership...

Multiple Organization Assignments

It looks as if your final solution with the new class and remove the old class is the solution. I see no other way to do it.
