New Version IconVersion 20.1.0 - 2020 Edition (12th March 2020)

    • Update: Added new Calendar Options icon to Options menu in both editors.
    • Update: Added Calendar Options icon to the main toolbar.
    • Update: All default XSL script templates have been adjusted so that the editors will use the latest installed Internet Explorer browser on your computer. This resolves issues with printing in languages such as Hindi, Gujarati and Punjabi (read more: forum topic)
    • Bug: The default XSL script templates have been updated to include the HTML lang / dir attributes. They also take into account the active Foreign Language Group settings. This resolves issues with the Chairman's Worksheet in languages like Hindi.
    • Bug: The S-89 XSL script templates were not setting the HTML lang / dir attributes correctly. They also take into account the active Foreign Language Group settings. You will need to request the templates again if this affects you or you can make the modifications to your existing template files.
    • Bug: The Midweek Editor was accidentally still displaying Workbook script templates in the drop-down list. This was an oversight on my part because we only support the Workbook-S-140 templates since version 20.0.7.
    • Bug: The Midweek Editor was not working correctly for Sesotho (South Africa) in Foreign Language Group mode.
    • Bug: The Midweek Editor was not updating the display when you selected Sesotho (South Africa) from the Foreign Language Group fly-out menu.
    • Bug: The default Workbook-S-140 RTL script template had some styling issues.
    • Bug: The Midweek Editor was not always showing dates correctly when using the Foreign Language Group mode.
    • Bug: Sync Weekend Meeting with Google Calendar was not displaying the Away Talk assignments or the Circuit Overseer's Service Talk.

New Version IconVersion 20.0.9 - 2020 Edition (6th March 2020)


New Version IconVersion 20.0.8 - 2020 Edition (1st March 2020)

    • Update: The Midweek Editor now displays a new pop-up window when you update your calendar(s). It is now possible to synchronize a single week.
    • Update: A change has been made to Validation for monthly workbook data Volunteers. The validation process was creating several false positives during the week of a Midweek Memorial (since there was no meeting). The software now takes the Memorial into account (as long as the volunteer has correctly added it as a Special Event). (read more: forum topic)
    • Update: You can now synchronize Weekend meetings with Google Calendar (read more: forum topic)
    • Bug: Outlook Calendar now correctly supports the Memorial and Midweek / Weekend meetings.
    • Bug: Issue with the function Import from OCLM History (read more: forum topic)
    • Bug: Leap year bug fix (read more: forum topic)

New Version IconVersion 20.0.7 - 2020 Edition (14th February 2020)

    • Update: The following default templates are no longer installed with Meeting Schedule Assistant. I have decided to do this for two specific reasons. Firstly, the Workbook templates are difficult to upgrade as they were not designed very well. Secondly, it means I have less script templates that I have to maintain when I have to make revisions. Therefore, with immediate effect, these templates are no longer installed:

Default Template

Workbook RTL

Workbook

Workbook-off-12h

Workbook-off-12h-PublicTalks

Workbook-off-24h

Workbook-S-140-PublicTalks

Workbook-S-140-PublicTalks-WatchtowerStudy

Note IconPlease make sure you now use one of the newer Workbook-S-140 default templates.

    • Update: You can now specify if an event is the Memorial the Special Events Manager. (read more: forum topic)

Note IconPlease note that any changes you make to existing special events will only be detected on new Midweek Meeting schedules.

    • Update: The Special Event item in the Midweek XML data file now includes the following new attributes: (read more: forum topic reply)

      - Memorial
      - Midweek

Note IconThis means the Midweek Editor can now cope with situations like when the Memorial is at the weekend. In these circumstances there is still a Midweek Meeting scheduled. All of the existing Workbook-S-140 default templates have been revised to take into account these new attributes.

Please note that any customised S-140 templates will need to be revised to take into account these new attributes.

    • Update: The Special Event item in the Midweek XML data file now includes the following new attributes: (read more: forum topic reply)

      - AllDayEvent
      - StartTime12
      - StartTime24
      - EndTime12
      - EndTime24

Note IconThis means you can now customise the XSL template to include the time of the special event.

      This needed changing due to the revised instructions for S-38 ¶18:
