What Does An LDS Mission Secretary Do?

In every mission there are several Mission Office Assignments which include secretary to the mission president, financial secretary, apartment administrators, vehicle fleet administrators, and referral secretaries. Have you ever wondered what the secretary does as a job description in the mission office. Linda Krupp secretary in a Russian mission describes the responsibilities of the office secretary:

There is quite a bit to do to prepare for incoming and departing missionaries every six weeks. Then there is the transfer sheet that also needs to be done every six weeks, and sometimes more often than that when unplanned transfers happen. He also deals with daily email, regular mail and types all the baptismal records to transmit to SLC. He is very thorough, experienced in the workplace.

It would be a useful thing if former office secretaries could tells us some tips that would make the job easier for the hundreds of missionaries that serve in the calling. Feel free to share.
