Dear brothers, 

thanks for the great work you are doing to facilitate the planning in our congregations. I guess this issue has already been raised by other people, but still it's not possible to select the visitor speaker as the final prayer. 
Can you please look at this feature ? 
once again than you for the great work !

I think at the time by 'standard' I did not primarily mean TB's workings, but 'standard' as per guidelines. And I know the TB team try to stick close to those. At the time I wrote that remark, the possibility to select a local speaker for the final prayer had just recently been added.

Looking at the template it looks like a local brother, when assigned, will be printed, but when not, nothing will be printed. Yes, this could be addressed in the template by IF (potentially also ELSEIF) and ELSE.

There is now a line in the schedule that says #if !prayer2_name!# !prayer2_name! #ENDIF# .
I suppose you could insert #ELSE# !pt_speaker! just before the #ENDIF# . Mind the exisiting text makeup

Honestly, in our congregation we only know if a speaker stays for the entire meeting like a few days before. In which case having a neat schedule is just for the sakes of having a neat schedule.

Hi Marc. Did I understand you correctly: assigning the visiting speaker to handle the concluding prayer is "standard" behaviour of TheocBase? If so, how?

If I misunderstood, then does the templating system support 'if' statements? I'm thinking I could output the name of the speaker if the concluding prayer assignment is empty.

Thanks in advance,
Mark

Actually I don't think it was asked before. Visiting speaker having the final prayer is standard. Recently the option was added to have local brother say the concluding prayer.

Not as an excuse, but in general adding this sort of roles (mic/AV/attendants etc): I know it is being looked at, but with limited capacity, priority is given to maintaining and improving core features of the program.
