Expiration Date printed on ordinance cards?
Since the expiration dates have been back in effect, I have been trying to get those dates hand written on all my cards. Yikes! It has taken hours and hours and I am only about a third finished. I tried to print a descending list of expiration dates to make it easier (That way I can physically mark when I had the date hand written on the card) but that didn't work. For some reason, the expiration dates all changed to two or three years. IS THERE SOME WAY THE EXPIRATION DATE CAN BE INCLUDED ON THE CARD WHEN IT IS PRINTED, LIKE THE PRINT AND REPRINT DATES ARE, HORIZONTALLY ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE CARD?
I only print the cards I need for the next temple trip. That way, if something changes online, I won't be doing work that doesn't need to be done.1
A couple of thoughts about this request.
1 There can be different expiration dates for each ordinance. So only one date on the card isn’t enough.
2 The expiration date can change as you do ordinances. So if it was printed on a card with multiple ordinances it would be wrong after the next ordinance was complete. But now that temples don’t return cards it wouldn’t really matter too much.
3 When the reservation expiration date is reached it does not invalidate the printed card. You can still take the card to the temple and perform the work. This does increase the chance of duplicate work being done. So it is best to print the ordinances cards shortly before you do the work.1
I would love to see the expiration date on my temple cards. I print my cards and clip them together according to their expiration date that I've written on the card.0
