This is what the Student Selection window looks like:

Demo / Student assignment Selector window

  • All existing students / assistants that have been assigned for the active week are indicated with different coloured backgrounds.
  • You can sort the information in ascending or descending order using the following columns:
    • Name
    • Last Used For
    • Last Used For [Assignment]
  • You can resize the window (this position gets saved).
  • If applicable, the partner for the assignment is shown in square brackets [...]

Notes IconThere is a Edit menu on the student selector window. Use this to Copy the current student data to the clipboard (tab delimited). Also, please remember that when you are choosing an Assistant, that the list of Publishers is restricted to just those with the Assistant assignment.


Use the filtering options provided to restrict the list of publishers displayed in the list:

Filtering Options

The filters are applied in order (from left to right). Here is more details:

Main Filter

The main filter is the gender. At least one of them must be ticked.


Sub filter 1 is the appointment status. The brothers filter must be ticked for these to be enabled. They do not apply to sisters.


Sub filter 2 is the last assignment status. So you can easily identify which publishers were last used as an assistant (for example).


Sub filter 3 is the privilege status. So you can limit the list to just the regular pioneers (for example).

Note IconDemonstration is disabled when you are in the context of selecting a student.


Sub filter 4 is the publishers name. The wording entered can be found anywhere in their name.


Sub filter 5 is the publishers notes. The wording entered can be found anywhere in their notes.

Note IconWhy have a filter for their notes? Some congregations like to use the notes field for the publishers Field Service Group. They can then use this filter to limit the publishers to a specific group.


Lookup WindowClicking on the Lookup symbol will display a list of the most recent assignments given by the student (in descending date order).

In addition, it will display all upcoming assignments for the student in bold text. This includes those future assignments on the current schedule, and any held in the assignment history file.

Future assignments are included as this can be useful if you need to make changes to existing student arrangements.
