Quarterly Report

#1

Post by apiket »

I have a question about some of the statistics that are displayed in each quarterly report.

Is the statistic (percentage) of VT/HT determined by checking boxes for the respective families for all 3 months, or does 1 month suffice?

Many thanks,

Almost all statistics on the quarterly report are for the last month of the reporting quarter. This is definitely true for HT/VT. For example, in the Q2 Quarterly Report, only the home teaching statistics for the month of June will be displayed.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.

aebrown is correct, as usual! But that is not to say you don't enter them on the other two months of the quarter.

Quorum, Group and Relief Society Presidents give a monthly home teaching report to the bishop. (See CHI book 2: 9.5.4, and CHI book 2: 7.4.4) I think in most units, this monthly report is most easily accomplished by entering these statistics EVERY MONTH, and not just for the "counting month," and printing a copy of it for the bishop. Our stake also requests a monthly report in addition to the quarterly report.

If you are asking about the actual procedure required to produce the report, the boxes you check in the HT or VT reporting menus DO NOT automatically populate (transfer to) your line 4 or line 11 of the quarterly report entry screen. You must TYPE the number HT or VT manually on the quarterly report in MLS.

If you have other questions about the quarterly report, see the "Sources of Data" chart in the wiki, which answers this and many other questions, and reprints the MLS help responses about every line on the quarterly report.
