Using "summary by sub-category" after the CUBS changeover my Other:Authorized Member Finance Activities Category shows a (-)$29,133.84 for the current year, with a Balance forward of (-)$22,742.51
The "summary by category" shows that the total for the Other category for the current year is (+)$3,083.49
The main problem is that our units "Other" category for scout camp funds shows (+)$9,188.03 - But I know that it should only have about (+)$2,000 in it to carryover to next year.
Our "Other" category for YW Camp has a similar issue
The CUBS update pushed all the Other expenses (for the past 5-7 (?) years) into the lump of the newly created first category - I guess that next year I will create a new category for the current Year and be able to kindof start fresh, but it is strange having the ongoing negative main category and working around that with all the other "other" sub-categories
Thoughts, suggestions, workarounds?
Holding funds in any Other category is asking for trouble. I ask the clerks in my stake to only deposit funds in an other account if it is going to a specific purpose and the Bishop should always have a plan to expend the funds ASAP. I also recommend that they do everything they can to make sure other is cleared out and balanced before the end of the year.
