This is in line with the discussion with the topic of this thread. However, since the forum is primarily user-to-user help and support the only thing we can do is discuss it. Those who make the decisions related to this topic most likely will never see this topic discussion. To get your feedback to those who can do anything about it is through the feedback link found at the bottom of the Class and Quorum Attendance report page. It is in the footer for the page. All feedback provided this way will be routed to the responsible people, department, or council for consideration. Due to the amount of feedback submitted through this channel do not expect to get a personalized response. Sometimes there will be no response at all. Another method to get feedback to the correct people is to send the feedback up the priesthood chain. You talk to your bishop; he talks to your stake president; he talks to the area coordinating council; and so on...

Looking for advice on how to report attendance for the ward when we were unaware of this app AND no one entered info through the Tools app AND quarterly reports are past due with no ability to correct stats. Any suggestions?

If you click on (edit: the "View More" link to the right of the check boxes for each member), you will see options to record prior month's attendance. Not as easy is scrolling down the list, but doable in a pinch. Since the quarterly report only counts the last month of the prior quarter, you will only need to enter March information which should pull into the report after a slight delay (should be about 5 minutes but could be longer due to server load). Technically, you only need one checkmark for any week a member attended the class/quorum meeting in March (this is how the report was being submitted prior to this new app). April is not over so entering March data should pull into the quarterly report so it can be submitted before the end of the month. In the words of a prior prophet, "just do the best you can."

In my opinion, communication and instructions regarding this were lacking so don't feel bad that it was missed. As a prior EQ Presidency counselor, I mentioned it to our EQ President at the time shortly after the app became available - his response was "until he received direction/instructions regarding it he wasn't going to worry about entering the information." Thus we only have my personal record for some weeks and then our EQ meetings for part of March after I was called as the new EQ President.

As Dave said, you only need one attendance marked for the month of March for them to count in the budget calculation. I had the same problem with a youth organization so I just asked who was attending and picked a week and marked them as attending for each youth. That gets the stats to be right as a total. I think we have it ironed out for 2nd quarter data to be more meaningful on the week to week basis.

I sent a feedback asking that the YW/YM/Primary rolls allow those organizations to mark the adult attending those classes. It's wonky to require the RS to try to track which women are serving in primary and YW and to know if they are there or not.

Bueno seria fantástico poder decirles a estos hermanos que van a la Capilla a solo permanecer en los pasillos, en una entrevista posterior (y mostrarles su asistencia a la Iglesia y lo que ha hecho durante los últimos 4 o 6 meses) y decirles que se les ha visto en la iglesia pero para nada interesado en las clases y otras actividades. Estoy seguro que seria una muy buena lección para el miembro que hace esto.

No teachers.


That information is available in the "Access Table," which you can find under the "Other" heading on LCR. The table confirms what you are finding.
