Return + Report was built by auxiliary leaders for auxiliary leaders. Our Mission is to supplement and support technology efforts created by the LDS church in making Home and Visiting Teaching easy and effective. We are not affiliated (other than being active members) or endorsed by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, however have a passion to leverage inspired technology to further enhance the work of the Lord.
In 2006, Brad Oldham started Return and Report as a Web Based Platform for his ward while serving in the EQ Presidency in Lake Forest, California. He began a discussion about the idea on the LDS Tech message boards. Soon after, numerous other wards world-wide began to use the system. Return and Report was given the LDS Tech Award by the Church in 2008. Since then, the tool has been used by thousands for managing Home and Visiting Teaching.
5 years ago Dan Ray and Eric Oborn were serving in the YSA EQ Presidency while studying Information Systems at ASU. Focusing on the importance of Home Teaching they found they were spending nearly all of their time administering with constant phone calls, text messages, emails, and voicemails. They knew there had to be a better way to let mobile technology manage the reporting and communication, leaving more time to address the needs and spiritual aspects of Home Teaching. What began as a hobby, Home Teaching Reporter quickly grew in popularity with 10,000+ downloads.
Brad, Dan, and Eric combined efforts with a goal to provide a richer web and mobile experience that makes reporting home and visiting teaching even easier. We are grateful for everyone’s support and hope to continue to improve upon the platform for many years to come!
“I cannot tell you how much time this has saved our presidency from having to make phone calls each month/quarter. If your elders quorum/ hp group/ relief society is like ours and has a good number of smart phone users, this app is absolutely essential.”
“As a church leader, I have enjoyed this program very much! I am sure that it will bless many lives with the more people use it. Once it is set up it makes everything so much easier to report and to finish HT information.”
“I like that members can use the app to report their own home teaching. I also really like that you can download the home teaching districts from MLS. What a time saver!! Often, someone will stop me in the hall at church and give me their home teaching report, or email it to me, or text, etc. With this I could just keep track of it on my phone. That makes life easier!”
“I love that the app syncs between my phone and iPad! I also love not having to locate the report papers I always seem to lose. Added bonus that it has attendance tracking. This makes my life a lot easier as elders quorum secretary.”
“The app works great! It makes our HT reporting so much easier! Highly recommend.”
“As a new EQ President, I’ve been looking for something to help manage and track home teaching. After trying several other apps, I found this one. I am finally able to effectively manage home teaching using my iPad. I love the MLS import feature! Nice work!!!”
“This App is a lifesaver! Great work to the developer! Very easy to use and report.”
