Edit discussion with video assignments

The Edit discussion with video assignments button is only enabled when Discussion with Video material has been specified. The following resizeable window is displayed:

Discussion with Video window

Making Manual Assignments

Use the drop-down lists on the left hand side of this window to manually select who will handle the Discussion with Video assignment in each location. The brothers listed here are those who have the Treasures assignment in the Publishers Database. Also note that the Auxiliary Classroom controls will only be enabled if the classroom options have been set in the editor.

Note IconYou are not limited to the names in the drop-down list. Did you now that you can also type in a name if you want to?

Using the Assignment History Information

You can also use the Assignment History list on the right hand side to select someone. Information is sorted in date ascending order.

There are two ways to use this feature:

  • The first tab limits the display to the specified audience setting. The heading of this tab changes when you click in to each drop-down list.
  • The second tab displays all available history information.


The number of times that each brother has previously given this assignment is shown in square brackets.

Note IconClick on Lookup to display a list of previous assignment dates. The Lookup window indicates if they have any future Discussion with Video assignments.

Edit student assignments

Use the Edit student assignments button to display the Student Assignments window.

Student assignmentsYou populate the student assignments in exactly the same way as you do for the Bible Reading assignment.

Click the symbol to display the Student Selector window and choose the student / assistant. The study number is automatically filled in from the Student Material information (when in 2019 mode).

Please keep in mind that there is no Assistant if the student item is designated as a Talk.

Please also keep in mind that your LMMO could populate all this information and then export it. Then all you need to do is import it.

The auxiliary classes will be enabled if the classroom options have been set in the editor.

Finally, you can click on the information symbol to see what the type / material is for the chosen student item.

Checked AssignmentsYou need to use the Publishers Database to specify who can be given these assignments. You will need to tick the following assignments for them to show in dropdown lists:

  • Assistant
  • Student

Edit assignments material

Use Edit student material button to display the Assignments Material window. From here you can specify or adjust the various assignment type and material information

Student materialYou can use special HTML tags with the material text. <i> </i> will do Italics. <b> </b> will do Bold.

Under normal circumstances you will not have to display this window since the volunteers who provide the monthly data will fill it in for you. However, if you are using a language that doesn't have a volunteer, or if you are preparing your schedule in advance of the volunteer then you will need to specify this information.

Set the Discussion with Video option as appropriate and customize as required.

Use the drop-down lists to set the student assignment type and don't forget to set the correct timing for each item. You should also select the study numbers here (if in 2019 mode).

You can type in a new assignment if required (it depends on the information provided in the workbook). You can add new entries to the list by using the customize lists feature.

Note IconDid you know that you can use CTRL + I and CTRL + B to automatically add the italic / bold tags to the selected text?

Reset to WeekThere is a handy Reset Week feature down on the bottom left of the window. This is useful if:

  • You are a monthly volunteer.
  • You are using a language that does not have a monthly volunteer.

A small pop-up window is displayed when you press the button where you can select how you would like to reset to. The controls will then update to an agreed set of default values.
