I am pleased to announce that there is a new version of Meeting Schedule Assistant available. This edition has some refinements to both editors.

Midweek Editor

Viewing Selected Slips

A new drop-down list has been added to the bottom right of the Midweek Editor. It is only enabled when you are in the slips view mode and the Current Week option is checked. The default setting is All which means that all of the assignment slips are displayed in the editor.

The following window is displayed when you choose Select:

The choices that are displayed on this window will change from week to week. You can select each item that you want included.
In addition, you can use the check boxes at the top to quickly select / deselect all items for a given class.
Use this feature when you have already issued the slips and are now making some re-adjustments and only need to print one or two.

Selecting Students

A new column has been added to the Student Selector window. This column is only displayed when you are selecting a student or an assistant:

Updating Translations

The script has been provided in:

English
Italian

You will be required to make a minor adjustment to the translations if you want to use it in another language. This is the part of the script that needs updating (lines 19 to 24):

19
20
21
22
23
24
<th class="cellSortHeading" id="column-1">Student</th>
<th class="cellSortHeading" id="column-2">Last As Student</th>
<th class="cellSortHeading" id="column-3">Last Bible Reading</th>
<th class="cellSortHeading" id="column-4">Last As Publisher</th>
<th class="cellSortHeading" id="column-5">Last As Talk</th>
<th class="cellSortHeading" id="column-6">Last As Assistant</th>

We can add your script with updated translations into the ZIP file.

Assignments Editor

The Assignments Editor has been updated:

It now has a status bar where it provides information about the selected cell:

Meeting date
Meeting type

As a result, some of the controls have been moved over to the right to make better use of the space available.
Also, the progress monitoring (send to Google) has been moved from the title bar down into the new status bar:

Clipboard Support

Clipboard functionality has been added to the context menu:

This comes in useful if you are making manual adjustments to the schedule.

It is your responsibility to ensure the validity of any pasted information.

  1. I have just updated the ZIp file for the “Custom Student Report”. It was not indicating “future dates” correctly. Please re-download the ZIP if required.
