I am pleased to announce that there is a new version of Meeting Schedule Assistant now available.
- The Midweek Editor now automatically selects the current week in the list of dates when opening an existing MWB data file. 🙂
- One of the most frequent situations that I find users of Meeting Schedule Assistant in is that they have a disaster recovery scenario and no recent backups of their data. Sometimes I am able to help to recover the files and then them back up and running. But as the saying goes “prevention is better than cure”. 🙂 Therefore, changes have been made to assist with disaster recovery.
There is now a new Automatic Backup settings feature that you can use:
It works in much the same was as the Backup facility in Public Talks. You can configure what to backup and how to back it up on a regular basis. You can still do a complete backup on demand from the File menu by selecting Backup Settings.
It should also be mentioned that all backups (whether created on demand or automatically) are now added to a new Backup Log database. Read on to find out more.
The way the backup is performed has also been changed for a Complete backup. The software will now include all data files in your working data folder. But it will not include sub-folders.
The Restore Settings feature has been changed. You will now be presented with a list of available backups to choose from:
It works in much the same way at the Restore Database feature in Public Talks. Simply select the backup to restore, or click Browse to a choose backup file that you don’t have listed in the log.
Supported operating systems:
You can also upgrade by using the Check for Update feature from the Help menu (if you have not been a beta tester).
