Re: Class And Quorum Attendance

Postby sbradshaw » Mon Feb 01, 2021 12:27 pm

As an elders quorum secretary, I see a roll for all of the elders quorum members when I go to Leader and Clerk Resources > Reports > Class and Quorum Attendance. However, it's not clear to me how I should use it exactly. In particular, there's a column for each Sunday – should I be recording "second-hour" attendance of the elders in my quorum each Sunday, or only on weeks where an elders quorum meeting is held? If a member of the Sunday School presidency records attendance on weeks with Sunday School, will those checkmarks appear on the roll I see?

You (the elders quorum secretary) should be recording attendance for the elders quorum. You will be able to see attendance recorded by the Sunday School presidency. If they aren't recording it, you can record it, but I would personally expect that to be their responsibility.

The latest Beta version of iOS Member Tools has this option. And it works!


Also on beta for Android (4.3.0)
There are 11 types of people. Those who understand Gray Code and those that don't.

This will be good. Hopefully it provides access to the deacons quorum presidency to take role in their quorum. We're trying to get the youth presidencies to do the attendance rather than adults.

UPDATE: In looking at the access table tool in LCR, it does not look like class advisers or specialists have access to this. It seems like this tool's access does not go far enough to eliminate paper rolls.

So it is a shared resource. I wondered, because our bishopric asked the quorum and RS to have their own meetings this past 5th Sunday. I was going to record the information on the 24th (when we did not meet), but found the 31st was available.

When this happened, I sent Feedback to the Global Services Department. Today I received a delightful email.
For help with attendance reports, please contact the Global Services Departmemt for help with this issue. The phone numbers for the GSD can be found at . . .

and they provided the Help Center link with the appropriate phone numbers.

For the record, I do not plan to call the GSD just because the GSD told me I should call the GSD.

Gotta love technology.

The announcement letter stated

A new feature has been added to Member Tools and Leader and Clerk Resources (LCR) that allows organization and quorum presidencies and secretaries to record Sunday class and quorum attendance by name.


I (as Bishopric Counselor) have access. My son (as Priests Quorum Secretary) does not, in either IOs Member Tools or from the website.

Is this a known issue, or is there something specific we need to do? (For Member Tools. we tried completely deleting the app and reinstalling with no luck)

Thanks for any help.

I reported earlier in this thread that the feature was available in the iOS beta version. I now find that this feature has gone missing!

If I remember correctly, youth class secretaries only have access to this capability in Member Tools.
