The Church used to do monthly reporting. Then it was discontinued. Why? Monthly = every 4 Sundays. Is that really a useful time period for the end goal desired? My understanding is that monthly reporting is still expected, but the monthly report stops at the ward level for review by the Bishopric. ...

I'd already tried that-- it's selected but doesn't seem to be doing anything. I've looked in some of the scripts to see if there's some AT code being sent to the modem, but couldn't find anything there, either.
Thanks, though.

I submitted this (the ability to reprint some printouts) as a feature request a year or two back, when I was the financial clerk and lost one of the check summary reports (the one that the clerk and the bishop both have to sign when checks have been printed) through some printer issue (ran out of to...

Ok-- I did my experiment and MLS didn't crash. It has however decided (on the November Statistics page) that I really do have 180 families in my unit, rather than the 145 that it was showing before. What I did to get this result: 1) select the "enter HT visits" menu option, tell MLS that each family...

I took another look at it this morning, and I think I'm even more confused. According to the HT statistics page for OCT, there were 133 families. During the month of October, we had 8 new HOH move in and about 33 families moved out. According to the HT statistics page for NOV, there are 145 families...

What you can see in the screen shot is all there is. It always just shows a snapshot of the unit. One thing I didn't think to do is look at the detailed view and see if there are some households that don't get counted. I would think the Nov HT stats should be pretty close to the unit stats, since it...

I thought you might be onto something-- there were about 37 families that moved out during October, and 9 that moved in. Then I remembered that even November doesn't total up right. All of those reports are from tonight. We had 2 families move in so far in Nov, and no families move out so far. Thanks

Home teaching calculations?

I'm confused by different "mini-reports" that MLS 2.7 is giving me. Here are some screen shots that show the problem. The first one is our "unit statistics", to show the number of households (178) and the number of women (129). When we look at the HT/VT percentages, the numbers seem grossly out of a...

Yes, it was true. I specifically checked the "new member report" and it was entirely empty after the upgrade and the first send/receive. The next night, after the second send/receive, all was good.

Desktop 5.5 or MLS and non-audible modem

Prior to having desktop 5.5 installed, I had configured the modem to be audible until connect-- I had felt (and still do) that there were times that the modem wasn't being initialized, and wanted to be able to hear the connection starting. Now, however, I am unable to figure out how to get the modem...
