File menu item — Meeting Workbook Transfer

The Meeting Workbook Transfer tools are available from the File menu.

The Life and Ministry Meeting Overseer is responsible for making the assignments for the Midweek Meeting. This also includes the Student assignments. But brothers (maybe the Coordinator of the Body of Elders) might have oversight for the Weekend Meeting and/or Audio-Visual Team. The Transfer tool has been designed to make transferring the relevant information between each other as simple as possible.

Publisher Database

The Transfer data file includes all essential publisher information and will automatically add or update the target database as required.

Congregations Database

The Transfer data file includes all essential congregation information and will automatically add or update the target database as required.

The target database is updated using the following rules (in order of priority):

  • Merge Congregation if it does not exist in the target database.
  • Merge Speaker if it does not exist in the target database.
  • Otherwise replace all assigned talk outline numbers.
