Where's "Restore from a File"?

For the life of me, I can't find the "Restore from a File" option in 3.0.3. Did it drop off?

I did multiple searches and each one says, "Go to file, then select Restore..." but I don't see it.

I see backup and export, but not "Restore."

Help!?!

:confused:

Oh. I'll bet it's....

I'm the Financial Clerk, and I just realized that I don't see it probably because I don't have admin rights. (Only the Ward Clerk and the Bishop do.)

I would probably bet a doughnut that's what it is. (Right?)

Sorry for wasting everyone's time. :o

The option is still in MLS 3.0.3. However, the option "Restore from a File" will only appear on the File menu if you are logged into MLS as an Administrator.

If you are not an administrator, you can make a backup (a fairly harmless option), but you can't restore a backup (which could possibly lead to significant data loss).

Ah, if you could only have had someone take you up on the bet, you'd now have a doughnut.:)
