Meeting Schedule Assistant 23.5.2 is now available

Meeting Schedule Assistant Logo

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

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you think of any ideas for improvements to the software. I’ll try my best to implement them if at all possible.

What’s New

A minor improvement has been made to several windows that allowed you to delete items from a list. You can now use the Del key on the keyboard. These windows are affected by this improvement:

  • Custom Assignments Manager (delete the selected custom assignment)
  • Customize Lists (delete the selected entry from the Customize Lists window)
  • Publishers Database (delete selected publisher)
  • Special Events Manager (delete selected special event)
  • Reminders (delete the selected reminder)

Please let me know if I have missed adding support for the Del key to any specific window. I have hopefully catered for them all. But you never know! 😊

New Custom Template

One advantage of using Meeting Schedule Assistant is its customizable template scripting feature. This means that you can format the schedules and reports in any way that you would like. And, in addition, you can pull together any information that you would like (even from external third-party data).

Preparing your own customized script can seem like a daunting task. Particularly if you don’t have any (or limited) knowledge of using CSS, HTML, XML or XSL. But don’t worry! As a userbase we are all here to help. Many sample templates have already been prepared and can be found on the website. Can’t find what you are looking for? Then please get in touch or ask via the Support Forum.

Sample Student Info

I recently wrote a new custom template (Student Assignment History — Counsel).

This custom report can be used with the Meeting Editor and displays the history for each student in the Publisher Database.

Why did I write this script? I did so because the Meeting Workbook provides the assigned counsel points for us. So it can be hard to keep a note of which counsel points a student has worked on.

This report shows you which counsel points they have not done. So when you see a student item in the workbook with that counsel point, this student would be a good candidate (if the material is suitable).

I welcome your feedback about this custom report! You can find a feedback form on the aforementioned link (scroll to the bottom).

I decided to create a new download category on the website for Custom Scripts. This is available on the homepage in the sidebar.
