Meeting Schedule Assistant Logo

I am pleased to announce that there is a new version of Meeting Schedule Assistant now available.

What’s New

This version includes two new features which we hope will help you with your scheduling of meeting assignments / duties.

Meeting Editor — Suggesting Students and Assistant

The Student Selector window has a new Suggest menu button.

Suggest menu button
Select Publisher — Suggest Menu Button

Use the Suggest feature to easily identify which publisher to use for this assignment. You can repeatedly click the Suggest button to cycle through all the publishers in date ascending order. It will ignore any publishers who are already on the school (these are indicated with a different coloured background).

The Sort Order of the information in the grid does not affect how the Suggest feature works. Please also note that the underlying list of sorted publishers is reset whenever you make changes to the Filters.

Click the drop-down arrow to display a small menu with extra navigation.

Next PublisherSelects the next suggested publisher. This is the same as clicking the Suggest button. It will restart from the beginning when you have reached the end of the suggestions list in a continuous loop.
Previous PublisherSelects the previously suggested publisher. It will restart from the end when you have reached the beginning of the suggestions list in a continuous loop.
First PublisherSelects the first publisher in the suggestions list.
Last PublisherSelects the last publisher in the suggestions list.

Assignments Editor — Avoiding Conflicts with Weekend Meeting

Anyone that has one of these Weekend Meeting assignments can be added to the Not Available list. Simply toggle the checkboxes as desired. These settings are Schedule Type aware.

Weekend Meeting Assignments Checklist
Weekend Meeting Assignments Checklist

The list will be disabled when the schedule row is not classified as a Weekend Meeting or Weekly.

You can easily see who has what assignment by clicking on the assignment name. This will select all assigned publishers in the Not Available list. Clear the highlighting by:

  • Clicking a blank area on the assignments list.
  • Selecting another meeting row on the schedule.

The assignment information is obtained from the Assignment History database.
