You can add your own types of assignments into the program making the schedules fully customizable. For example, you might like to add a column listing those on duty for Hall Cleaning, or someone responsible for Locking of the Kingdom Hall after meetings, or who is to care for Kingdom Hall car park security etc.. One of the key features in Meeting Schedule Assistant is that you can populate your schedules automatically.
It does not stop there! Meeting Schedule Assistant also includes a comprehensive Our Christian Life and Ministry Meeting Schedule editor.
All meeting assignments can be effortlessly catered for and included on the schedule.
It is possible to automatically assign some of the Our Christian Life and Ministry Meeting assignments.
Synchronise with Google and Outlook
Do you use a Google Calendar or Outlook.com/Outlook365 Calendar? Then consider using the Calendar synchronization facilities within Meeting Schedule Assistant. Many mobile device users have instant access to the internet and their Google / Outlook Calendar. There are requirements you should be aware of concerning this feature.
There are other features to Meeting Schedule Assistant that make it a useful program to use, like personalized schedules for each person amongst other things. The help file included with the program provides full details about these features. The program can also be run directly from inside the Public Talks program (from the Tools menu) if you also have that installed.
