Meeting Schedule Assistant v18.1.6

I am pleased to announce that there is a new version of Meeting Schedule Assistant available. It includes several new features including a partial translation in Aukan.

Menu Item Bitmaps

I have gone through the menu on the Midweek Editor and located some suitable images for many of the items:

This adds a bit of colour to the editor 😊.

Swapping Assignments

You can now swap assignments on the schedule:

Hold down the CTRL key and then click the left mouse button on any of the assignments to display the popup menu.

Please note that you cannot use this feature for the following:

  • Bible Reader
  • Students
  • Student Assistants
  • Weekend Assignments

Note that you can swap between different types of assignment too. A small popup window is displayed for you to confirm your actions:

Referenced Schedules

You can now reference in another schedule into the Editor:

The additional weeks are shown with a special symbol:

You can edit the various assignments for any of these referenced weeks like usual. However, you will not be able to do the following:

  • Download Schedule Information

  • Export Student Information

  • Import Student Information

  • Reference [another] Schedule

  • Save

  • Save As


This is why those actions are greyed out on the File menu.

When you have made the needed changes to the referenced schedule you should close it.

This will show you a file selection window for you to save the schedule. It will offer to update the history and calendars as usual.

Then it unloads the schedule from the editor.

Swap Assignments with a Referenced Schedule

It is possible to swap assignments with a loaded reference schedule. The process is exactly the same.

You will see that all referenced assignments are indicated with a symbol.

There are also a few other minor improvements and bug fixes made to the application. Please upgrade when the new version is announced.

Feel free to add a comment below about the new features (or to supply beta feedback).

Print Preview – Personal Copies

Several years ago (literally) a feature request was discussed on Mantis BT. I have at long last spent some time on implementing it!

There is now a new item on the File menu. It is only enabled when you are using the Workbook view in the editor. Clicking Print Preview – Personal Copies will display this popup window:
