Single cheque multiple Fast Offerings expenditures

Postby gj.anderson » Thu Jul 31, 2014 1:18 pm

I've been asked to suggest a possible enhancement to MLS. The ward's Relief Society President often submits one claim for multiple Fast Offerings food expenditures made on behalf of a number of receiving families. MLS requires that we print separate cheques to the President reimbursing expenditures made for each family rather than letting us print one cheque payable to the President covering all expenditures and identifying expenditures made on behalf of each family. Perhaps this could be considered for a future release of MLS. If this is not the appropriate forum to make this suggestion, I'd appreciate advice as to where to send it. Thanks.

This is an appropriate place to discuss your suggestion, but the MLS developers do not normally frequent the Forum. To make sure your suggestion is considered, you will want to submit it through MLS messaging, or directly to the email address for enhancements listed in the MLS Release Notes.

You might also keep in mind that the developers take instruction from the priesthood leaders at Church headquarters who identify support requirements. Since there is a requirement to keep track of fast offering expenditures by member, a change such as the one you suggest would still require keeping track of the individual expenses, even if a single check was issued to reimburse the Relief Society president.
