Video Conferencing Assignments

We recently added support for video conferencing assignments to Meeting Schedule Assistant and we said that some similar adjustments were also being made to Public Talks.

The Host and Co-host assignments are now supported and this have affected several parts of the software. For example:

Home Talks window
Host and Co-host assignments now available on the Home Talks window.

Other affected areas of the software:

Have a look at the Revision History for a complete list of all the changes made.

Please note
The Host and Co-host features are also included in import / export operations.

Using Host and Co-host in Schedules

The new assignments Host and Co-host can only be used in your custom report scripts at the moment. Here are some code snippets to help you with your scripting:

  • This is how you can list all of the brothers with the Host assignment
// This is how you can list all of the brothers with the "Host" assignment
TEXT "This is how you can list all of the brothers with the "Host" assignment:"
EOL

BLANK *1
LOOP FROM "Brothers" NODATERANGE WHERE "BrotherHost" IS "-1"  SORTBY "BrotherName"
	FIELD "BrotherName"
	EOL
END_LOOP
  • This is how you can list all of the brothers with the Co-host assignment
// This is how you can list all of the brothers with the "Co-host" assignment
TEXT "This is how you can list all of the brothers with the "Co-host" assignment:"
EOL

BLANK *1
LOOP FROM "Brothers" NODATERANGE WHERE "BrotherCoHost" IS "-1"  SORTBY "BrotherName"
	FIELD "BrotherName"
	EOL
END_LOOP
  • This is how you display the assignments on your schedules
// This is how you display the assignments on your schedules
TEXT "This is how you display the assignments on your schedules:"
EOL

BLANK *1

TEXT "Co-host"

	FIELD "Video Conference CoHost"
	EOL
END_LOOP

Other Improvements

It was recently brought to my attention that the custom report scripting LINESPACING command was not working in certain scenarios. This issue has now been resolved. Thank you for bring this issue to my attention!

There have also been one or two other minor bug fixes made.
