I would definitely recommend that if you upgrade to 2.7 you plan on either doing the upgrade in the morning on a weekday and then finishing later that day, or doing on two separate evenings. Based on comments in another thread about some reports not being populated (New Member report, and something ...

Boy, you guys are no fun. :) Redzarf, you definitely have my condolences. I was the financial clerk for about 2-3 months before we switched to MLS, and the amount of time I had to spend on reconciling and balancing stuff dropped tremendously. I went from needing to spend 2 hours/month to about 10-15...

printing multiple checks in reverse order?

I've only done this a couple of times myself, but it's an easy thing to forget or to not think about the first time: Our printer requires that blank checks be placed into the paper tray face down. Unfortunately this means that when multiple checks are being printed you can't just take 5 checks out o...

Just thought I'd post and say "Thanks!"-- this tool was quite nice for me. I discovered that more addresses matched if I removed the address2 field from consideration due to values like "XYZ Nursing home", or "used to be no contact". One thing that is proving to be frustrating (not with the tool, bu...

False alarm, I'm going to go hide my face for a while

Wow, go get a hair cut and run a few errands and there's already a bunch of replies! Thanks everybody! I think I need a "color me embarrassed" smilie-- it turns out that I had misread one of the names on the list and thought the PE that was listed was actually his father (who is an Elder), and anoth...

HP Roll includes Elders?

ETA: This was a false alarm! ********************************** I don't know if this is a bug or just something that was set up wrong-- as I was doing our quarterly report I printed a HP roll to compare it against the names of "non-attendees" that the HP GL had provided. I discovered that a number o...

[sorry to fork the thread-- thought I'd reply to gwilliams] If you relink the donor record with the membership record, doesn't it fix the name as well? (I know if updates the address info.) If my memory is failing me on that, couldn't you: 1) add a new donor record, but mark it as "not a member" so ...

Custom report clutter

There are a lot of people able to create custom reports, but no way to identify who created the report (or even what role the creator fills) what user last ran the report, or when the report last ran at all. We all know that sometimes people just don't clean up after themselves (tried to create a re...

No answer, but maybe additional info?

Same event as Mike posted about, but maybe this additional information might help us understand what's going on behind the scenes? I've been very aggressive about keeping our geocode information up to date when proposed boundaries moved around a bit. I was updating both the Stake and Ward geocode fi...

When members forget their username

I thought I'd come across this before, and just verified it again. If members forget their username on LUWS, all they need to do is try to register a new account with their MRN and confirmation date, and the LUWS system will say "failed to active this account-- an account is already registered with ...
