Exporting Custom reports is what we do. There are 2 reports (a 1-page telephone directory with Leadership list and a Speaker history for the Bishopric) that I have to manage with Excel/Open Office. The Speaker History has to be exported to allow me to populate the last date an individual spoke. I us...

No, they do not show in MLS (except in the Members moved out list). I'll send you a private note with one of the Member's information. Thanks for your assistance.

You can now clean up the incorrect information. See Clerks can now fix duplicate callings in CDOL for more details. On a related issue, how do we correct online information, other than Callings? A couple of our members were moved out of our ward several weeks ago. I'm still looking to see them disa...

Toward the bottom of the store page on the right is the link for Administra...

So I'm curious -- were you able to order the material over the phone that you couldn't order online? Are the policies for who can order materials different for online vs phone orders? I haven't checked in the past few weeks, but when I tried to order Bishop's Storehouse orders as requested by my bi...

The latest bright note for ensuring PLA is recorded is version 3.3 of MLS. A change was made to allow Stake Clerks to record Priesthood Ordinations instead of relying upon the Ward Clerks to do so. I have had to make it a habit over the last several years that when we have Stake Conference or a Gen...

You are correct, though, that whenever CHQ finds the information, they will add it to the appropriate membership record. So, in your case, if someone else provided the input, the record would have been updated without any action on your part. Several in my ward have requested their line of authorit...

I have been Ward Clerk for over 5 years (and love it, thank you very much) and when I was called we had a member who donated every month to tithing as anonymous. Eventually, some in the Bishopric accidentally discovered their identity. Such a member's their motives are personal and I suggest we not ...

Our Stake collected most during the broadcast and instructed the wards to shred any that were turned in to them after the fact. That is what we are doing at our ward - I have a box in the Clerk's office and I try to shred a few manuals each time I'm up there. I will have them all gone by the end of ...

Those positions didn't make it to CDOL for whatever reason. To get them to be sent up to CDOL again you can edit them (change the sustained date) save it, and change it back to the initial value. This should get it sent up to CDOL. Once it is in CDOL the directory on lds.org will show them. Thank y...
