This has been implemented for the LMMO. The idea is that he runs the program, adds in any new students, and then populates the student assignments (and counsel points). When ready, he uses this feature to export the details and sends the resulting file to the CBOE.
This has been implemented for the CBOE. The idea is that he takes the student information data file that has been sent to him from the LMMO and then imports it. It will automatically add any new students into his database (so he does not need to add them in himself) and it will automatically fill in all the student assignments and counsel details.
It is possible to include the weekend meeting information on the schedule. A window is displayed where this can be entered manually. Some of the information can be imported from your Public Talks database (if you are using the software). You have to press the menu item for each week on the schedule.
Several templates (e.g. Workbook-S-140-PublicTalk-WatchtowerStudy-ServiceTalk) have been provided that includes the public talk information on the schedule. But you would have to set the page break to every week.
You are free to extend it and / or customize your own schedule.

It is also possible to display the page setup dialogue from within the Print Preview. Just click on the cog symbol.
Displays the Internet Explorer Print Preview for the currently displayed view. There are several options available to you:
- To the right of the cog is a toolbar button that will hide the default header and footer.
- On the far right are some settings that allow you to reduce the scale of your print out. This can be handy to use for the odd occasion where reducing the margins is not enough.
The S-89 assignment slip template files are not provided with the application. You need to email a copy of your PDF slip and in return you will receive the template files with instructions.
This is provided for convenience. Update your calendar on demand, otherwise, wait until you save the MWB file and do it then.
