Hi Brothers, for the new Apply Yourself To The Field Ministry video part Increase Your Joy In the Ministry, the guidelines allow a brother other than the Chairman to be assigned this part, however Theocbase doesn't currently allow a selection.  The Chairman is pre-filled and unable to be changed.  Can we request the ability to change the brother assigned this part.

Thanks, Steve

Thank you Marc, for looking into this. I don't think it is something very urgent. For the moment I just manually edit the schedule pdf to look "right". It's just one assignment per month, so it's not a big deal. But it's good to know this behavior is known and might be addressed in some future update. Keep up the great work brothers!!! This software is a life saver for lots of congregations.

I have taken a look, and I cannot understand either the template behaviour in case of Sample Presentation or the behaviour in case of 'other video'. So I think something hardcoded into the software may be at play here. I'll have to find some information on that. This won't be fixed today...

Don't get me wrong, I understand your problem. If BoE for one reason or the other decide differently, then you as the one who keeps the schedule in TB, has a problem.

To 'translate' the instructions a little more technically:
the 'other video' part in the additional class is taken by the same one as in the main hall, and if not, it is taken by the additional class' counsellor.

If you know the local situation, you know which one of the two is represented by the open space. Incidentally, I do not think the print template handles this well for the Sample Presentations, because it will print the chairman for the Main Hall and the Counsellor for the Auxiliary Class. So the print template behaviour does not seem to be consistent here. At first glance that is...

So to accomodate your issue, either the input in TB should be more flexible (which may lead to conflict with the S-38), OR, which is the only feasible solution left, the print template should be improved. But this would lead to 2 different templates, one for congregations in which the aux. class can see and hear the main hall, and one for congregations in which they can't.

Maybe you are good at tweaking the templates yourself. I am not a star in that, but in the end I usually get something working. I'll have a look later

Dear Marc, you have a point there. In any way the correct behavior would for the schedule would be to show the assigned brother (e.g. the one in charge of the auxiliary class). You should also only be able to select the auxiliary class room instructor to be assigned to this part.

Yes, par 6 does make that distinction, so unlike Sample Presentations, the 'other video' parts can be assigned to someone else than chairman.

But I do not see any such distinction in par 25. It just says 'a' video. That would include both types.

Apparently the TB team have also not seen the distinction in that paragraph.

Dear Marc, we applied §6 to this special part where it says an elder or qualified ministerial servant should be assigned to this part. In our understanding §25 applies to sample conversation videos where it would be the counselor discussing the video. While the instructions are ambiguous and TheocBase allows scheduling another brother, this should also be reflected in the schedule.

According to your S-38 ¶25, it should actually not be possible to assign someone here.

The extra class should watch and listen to the discussion going on in the main hall, and if that is not possible, the extra class' counsellor will take the part. This is implied by the empty space on the schedule.

Maybe the template can be tweaked to actually show the counsellor, for those congregrations where an extra class cannot follow the discussion in the main hall.

I have an issue with this part, too. We have two classrooms and while I can assign a brother for each classroom, in the midweek meeting schedule it looks like there is nobody assigned for this part in the auxiliary classroom.

It isn't. At least for most of us it isn't.

I am a little at a loss why you ask this now, since the first instance of this item was last week. Should I conclucd that March/April was fine, but May/June isn't? More importantly to me it is not clear how I should understand 'different order to the meeting workbook'. I think this could mean many things.

And posting in this existing thread, you might want to mention if you have tried the suggestions given above.

If you had imported the March/April workbook before TB accomodated this new item, it is more likely you have issues. Reimporting the workbook now may do the trick.

If it doesn't work, please come back here and try to explain in more detail what you are up against or maybe post a picture (excluding names) of the faulty schedule.

Then either you may not have the latest release, or when you do, something is off in your settings.

Use 2020.01.1
Make sure the individual is marked for those assignments in the person's table.
Make sure the programme item has actually been imported as 'other video' (Settings - LMM Meeting - check the items in  the bottom box for those weeks, and make sure the first column has 'other video'. If not change it (doubleclick and choose from dropdown).

You may need additional permissions (acccess control) to do some or all of these things.
