Welcome to MyService
I have received many questions about recording Bible studies in MyService. Apparently, it was not so obvious before. Now I have made it simpler.
Previously, if you wanted to see a Bible study in your reports, you had to 1) define a person, 2) set that person's status to "Bible student", and 3) record at least one call to that person, marking this call as a "Bible study".
I just released an updated version of the Android app where step 2 is no longer required. So, all persons with whom you have had Bible studies in a particular month or year, will be counted as Bible studies in that month's/year's report, regardless of their status.
I hope this will simplify the usage of MyService and make it more intuitive!
Currently, this change has been made only to the Android app. The desktop version will be updated some time later.
A new release of the desktop application is out! Here is an overview of the changes.
First of all, reports are no longer generated as PDF files. They are now displayed as plain text within a text box. Why the change? The PDF generation library that I used has changed its license terms, which means that I am no longer allowed to use it in closed-code applications. Also, many users experienced problems with reports in PDF format. And one more thing. Some of you asked for the ability to change the report font and text size, as well as the ability to send reports via email. Now you can simply copy the report text and do whatever you want with it, like copy into an email or paste into some kind of word processor where you can change its font, color, and size. It is a much simpler, but also more flexible approach.
There is also one new cool feature. Now you can see all visits of individual contacts (like it is in the Android app). Simply select a contact from a list and then click the button.
I hope you like it!
Both the desktop and Android versions of the app have been updated. Here are the main changes:
In both apps, the Brochures/tracts field is split into two separate fields, and the Videos field is added for those serving in sign language congregations. This is reflected in the reports, too.
Also, in the Android app, the Ministry Details window has received a face lift. It now looks nicer and should be more intuitive to use.
Additionally, in the desktop app, the offline help is replaced with an online help and the help button is added to several windows.
As always, I am open to your suggestions and comments!
I have released a new version for the Android app that introduces two significant features.
There are now two new buttons on the calendar window, as shown on the right. The one on the top opens a search window. Yes, you can finally search your data! In particular, you can search for phrases in calls, persons' data, territories, and publications.
The other button opens a list of calls. It is similar to the call list displayed for individual persons, but this one shows all calls, not just the ones that belong to a specific person. It also allows you to create, edit, and delete calls right there.
Another minor feature is that now calls to inactive persons are no longer displayed. You can still see them but then you have to enable the Display inactive persons option in settings.
I hope you like the new features!
I have finally transferred documentation of the desktop version to this website. You can enjoy it here.
My plan is to remove the HTML help that comes together with the application and forward the user to this website. In this way, the user will always see the latest and most fresh documentation.
Similar online documentation for the Android app is next on my to do list.
