Student Info Tab:

The program automatically starts on the Student Info tab. This is because all the other parts of the program use the data contained on the Student tab. It's important to begin and set the data correctly here first before moving on to other tabs.

On the Student Info Tab, begin to add names and profiles of all the students on the school.
Note: You can possibly Import TMS Student Data from the other 3rd Party TMS programs.

Start by entering the students and their profile information.
A students profile is very important in regards to scheduling the school correctly. A complex algorithm was created to take all aspects of a students profile into account. The type of talks they can do (including sourceless talks), the schools they can be in, if they are currently active, and their availability, if they are on vacation and available to be assigned talks for a particular date, etc, are all considered when scheduling and selecting a matching a student to a talk.

Add Students:
To add a new student use the 'Add New' button:
TMS add student info

Students will need the following Indicated/Entered in their profile:
  • Last Name [type in textbox]
  • First Name [type in textbox]
  • Gender [select Male or Female from list]
  • Servant [checkmark for YES]
  • Bible Highlights [checkmark for YES]
  • Talk 1 [checkmark for YES]
  • Talk 2 [checkmark for YES]
  • Talk 3 [checkmark for YES]
  • Assistant [checkmark for YES]
  • School Preference [select All, One, Two, Three, One or Two, Two or Three from list]
    Note: All indicates all schools, One indicates Main Hall, Two indicates Second school and Three indicates the Third school.
  • Review Reader [checkmark for YES]
  • Active [checkmark for YES]
Edit Students:
To edit a student’s information, navigate to the row by clicking directly on the row or by using the navigation arrows in the toolbar. When the row is selected, the row will now become editable. Start modifying the student’s information and click save.
Edit TMS student info

Delete Students:
To Remove a student from the list, use the 'Delete' button.
Delete TMS student info
If the student may return or will become active on the school again in the near future, you can Uncheckmark the Active box. This way you will not need to re-enter their information when they become active again. When the Active checkbox is unchecked for a student, they will not be assigned any talks.

Save Students:
When complete, remember to save. It's important to Save often by using the 'Save Data' button.
TMS save student info

Sort Data:
It’s easy to sort data throughout the TMS program! Click on the Column Heading Once for Ascending Alphabetical order, and again for Descending Alphabetical. On computers with a higher resolution (more screen space), you will see an arrow in the column header indicating the sorting direction.
Note: Many columns are sortable. This makes it easy to see who are servants, brothers, sisters, assistants, active and inactive.
Sort TMS data

You can also jump to any row by clicking on that row, or by typing the row number in the box or by using the forward and backward navigation buttons.
Navigate TMS info

The History column contains a link that lets you view more details about each student. For example, to see a students Student Talk History or Student Availability. Save your data on the Student Info Tab by pressing the Save button before clicking on the History or Availability View links. For more information on those areas, click the Students History or Availability links.

Remember to hit the save button when additions, edits, or deletions have been completed.

Student Info Tab -> History Column -> View Link

This area is accessible from the Student Info Tab. Each student has a provided link where more details about the student's talk history can be viewed and modified.
TMS student history

In the Students Talk History Area, all talks given or talks that have been scheduled are viewable (autofilled when a schedule is created/modified) and is always editable.
TMS talk history

At the top of this Area, there will be the students Next Study Point. Depending on student's Profile. For brothers, they will have the following Study Point Lists:
  • Next Reading Study Point [List is visible if Talk1 is checked in the students profile]
  • Next Discourse Study Point [List is visible if Talk3 is checked in the students profile]
And Sisters will have the following Study Point List:
  • Next Demo Study Point [List is visible if Talk2 or Talk3 is checked in the students profile]
By changing these Next Study Point, the program will automatically schedule them using this value as their Study Point. Note: A Students Study Point is not incremental, meaning that if Study Point #1 is selected, their next talk will Not be Study Point #2. The school overseer will choose a Study Point that the student needs to work on to improve their speaking ability, rather than the computer selecting.

The Student Talk History will populate automatically when a schedule is created or manually edited. It wouldn't be needed for the school overseer to populate this area with the Add button, unless they wish to add old talks. By adding old talks, this will provide data for the scheduling algorithm not to schedule a student for a talk, as soon in the schedule, if they have just given a talk.

Therefore, the Talk History area is more for editing a Students Talk History after they have given their talk. Updating the Completed date, setting point used and if the student completed the Exercises or On Own. Also, if the student has successfully completed the Study Point, the overseer can change/update their Next Study point. If the student has a talk that doesn't use setting points points, then set the point to 31 (this is a setting that the school overseer can set to None).

You will notice the same look and feel and functionality as the Main Student Info Tab, with the same familiar Toolbar and Grid. The functionality is consistent throughout the program.

Remember to click the save button when additions, edits, or deletions have been completed.

To go back to the Main Students Tab, click the Go Back button.

Student Info Tab -> Availability Column -> View Link

This area is accessible from the Student Info Tab. Each student has a provided link where a students availability can be viewed and edited.
Student Availability in TMS

In the Students Availability Area, all unavailable dates are viewable and editable.
TMS student availability

Here the overseer can enter a description of the unavailability (vacation, temporary absence, etc). The start date and end date of the unavailability.
Note: If the student's return is unknown, it may be best to place the student as inActive (active box unchecked) in their student profile on the Student Info Tab until they return or their return date is known.

The auto scheduling algorithm will take their availability/unavailability into account when scheduling the students. They will not be scheduled for a talk if they are not available in that date range.

When scheduling student vacations/unavailability it's best to indicate a students unavailable date starting on a Sunday to ending on a Sunday. This way, it will cover the entire school schedule week (especially if the schedule is set using the Monday's date for each week).

You will notice the same look and feel and functionality as the Main Student Info Tab, with the same familiar Toolbar and Grid. The functionality is consistent throughout the program.

Remember to click the save button when additions, edits, or deletions have been completed.

Click the Go Back To Students button to return to the Main Student Info Tab.

Export Students Information to Excel/CSV
A print icon button has been added on the students info tab to allow exporting of the student's information to Excel or other CSV reader. After clicking on the print icon, a save to location box will appear. This allows you to save the Excel/CSV file to your computers files to modify/format in the way you would like before printing.

Export TMS schedule data to Excel

This allows a school overseer to export to Excel and in Excel perhaps add extra notes for a student or save and re-use this information for other schedules etc. It's also a primitive backup of the students info and talk preference settings. However, a full database backup on the import/backup tab is necessary to fully backup or restore all of the TMS data, as currently there is no import from csv/excel.

TMS Software Data Export to Excel


Generate/Edit/Print Schedule Tab

This tab is where the Auto Scheduling / Manual Scheduling is done for each weeks school schedule. On this tab, the TMS source material can be Added, Edited, or Removed. Instead of Typing in the whole schedule, you may add schedule weeks gradually as needed. Also, you may be able to Import the JW.org PDF schedule automatically. Please see How To Import the 2014 Schedule (over 100+ Languages) from Web OR How To Import JW.org PDF schedule into TMS 2014 for more information. If you have not already done so, Active the TMS software to enable the print button to print Schedules, Slips and Worksheets.

Theocratic Ministry School Source Material
To automatically schedule a school week, update the following and click the Create link:

  • The number of schools [List - select One, Two, Three schools]
  • Material Date [Calendar Date Selector - select date]
  • Oral Review [checkmark if YES]
    Note: This is automatically checked on the appropriate week. However, there could be cases of an Event, such as a C.O. Visit, Assembly, Weather Event, etc. that might push the Oral Review to the next week.
  • Special Event [List – select Regular Week, C.O. Visit, 1/2/3 Day Assembly, No School]
  • Schedule Created [Cannot Change Manually, will displayed as checked when the week has been automatically populated with students].
  • Populate Week [click Create when ready to automatically populate the week with students].
  • View Schedule [click View/Edit to View or Edit the Automatically populated scheduled week].
  • Select For Printing [click if you would like to include the week's information for the printout. When the Print button is pressed, this will create a RTF (rich text document) and open in your favorite word document editor. After checking and modifying the document as necessary, print from you word editor.
You will notice the same look and feel and functionality as the Main Student Info Tab, with the same familiar Toolbar and Grid. The functionality is consistent throughout the program.

Remember to click the save button when additions, edits, or deletions have been completed and before the Create button is clicked.

Also, Please note that the scheduling algorithm is greatly influenced by the last talk date given by a student. An insufficient randomization may have occurred when a schedule was created far in advance, such as at many months in the future, done by mistake or for testing of this program before using it for actual scheduling. If the future schedule was not removed with the intent of running the Create/Recreate schedule when the time approached, then this would affect scheduling for previous weeks. However, by keeping such advanced scheduling, this resulted in those students who were scheduled far in advance, not being included in recent schedules since their last talk date was far in the future. Thus, the scheduling algorithm chose other students to be scheduled until that time. Therefore, if many weeks had been pre-scheduled far in advance, with gaps in between, this left a small/smaller pool of students to be scheduled.

Please use the reset link for each week on the Generate Schedule tab, to clear students from created schedules. This allows for any accidentally created schedules to be cleared until they are rescheduled in the future.

How To Automatically Schedule a Week and Print:
  1. Step 1, modify the number of schools if necessary, such as if it's a special week or oral review and then Click the Create Link. This will populate the week with the appropriate students based on their profile. Repeat for every week you would like to create for the current schedule.
  2. Step 2, select the week to print placing by a checkmark in the Select For Printing checkbox.
  3. Step 3, select the type of information to print. The printing options are Schedule (for congregation information board), Schedule with Study Points and Material (for Overseer), Slips (portrait), Slips (landscape) Slips (JW.org S89 Template) (if slips are compatible for this printing option) (for Students), Weekly outline for school One (for Overseer), Weekly outline for school Two (for Overseer's assistant), Weekly outline for school Three (for Overseer's assistant).
  4. Step 4. Click the print button. This will open the selected weeks information in your word editor. In the editor, you can further customize to suit your needs.
TMS School Schedule

If you have made changes to a students profile on the Students Info Tab, and would like to have your change reflected in an already created schedule, you can click the 'Create' link again. It will ask you if you would like to ReCreate the week's schedule. Click Yes. Note: You may not see any change if you recreate a schedule, since there is logic in the algorithm that selects students based on last talk date.

Manually Modifying Schedule

After Creating the week's schedule, you can view the students assigned to the talks by clicking on the View/Edit link. If the schedule needs to be adjusted, you have full control to do so on the Schedule for Week (date) Tab. as shown in the screen cap below: (click the View/Edit link on the Generate/Print Tab to show):

Modify TMS schedule
To modify the schedule is easy. For example, to change talk #3 from a Brother to a Sister, select a sister from the Students Name drop down. This list is filtered, so only students able to give that talk according to their profile are displayed. (Note: The Create Schedule link will appropriately assign only sourceless talks to students who can give sourceless talks according to their profile. However, the dropdown student list on this tab currently does not filter on sourceless talk students. If the week has a sourceless talk, please select the appropriate student from the student dropdown list).

When you switch a brother to a sister, you will need to add an Assistant to the list, since a Sisters talk has an assistant. To do so, click the + plus sign icon in the tool bar. This will add a row to the table. Modify the new row by selecting the school number, talk type (such as AST#3) and study point as #54 - None since assistants do not have study points assigned to them.

If you would like to assign a brother for a talk that currently has a sister. Change the student by selecting a brother from the student Name drop down list. Then remove the assistant since brothers talks do not have an assistant by highlighting the assistants row for that talk and clicking on the 'X' delete icon button on the tool bar.

Hit the save button (image of a disk) after any and all modifications.

After creating a schedule, you may see the student assigned as ?????. This indicates there wasn't a suitable student for that talk. Also, you may see the same student scheduled more often than anticipated. If this is occurring, please make sure of the following:

  1. If the same student is scheduled too often or the ????? is showing, this may indicate that there are No students or very few that are able to do that particular talk. Verify that there are enough students able to do that talk type as indicated in their profile on the students tab.
Setting Students Study Points
A students study point is not incremental, meaning that if study point #1 is selected, their next talk will not be study point #2. The overseer will choose a study point that the student needs to work on to improve their speaking/teaching ability, rather than the computer selecting.

To set the study point, modify the last column with the dropdown box (see above screen cap) to select the studypoint that the student will need to work on, and then click the save icon. The studypoint selected will now display on the students assignment slip when printed. For assistants, bible highlights, oral review readers etc., these assignments do not need a studypoint assigned to the student. By keeping the default value of 54 (that can be entered by the school overseer as None/Unknown), this will not print any studypoint on the students assignment slip for that talk assignment.

Reschedule Week / Re-populate Week With Students
When clicking on the 'create' link for a week on the Generate/Print Tab - if the week is already scheduled, a popup box will ask, would you like to reschedule the week. By selecting 'Yes', this will delete everyone scheduled for that week and reschedule the students based on their last talk given date. Note: Only select 'Yes' to reschedule on weeks in the future, where the schedule/slips have not yet been released to the congregation to avoid confusion).

Reset link on Generate Schedules Tab
When clicking on the 'reset' link for a week on the Generate/Print/Edit Tab, a popup will ask if you would like to Reset the week. By selecting 'Yes', this will delete everyone schedule for that week. It will also remove the students history entry for that week.

If you are not experiencing many students with a '??????' after rescheduling/recreating, make sure there are enough students able to give each talk type and enough students have the 'Active' checkbox check-marked on the students tab. Also, since scheduling of students are based on many factors including the date of their last talk given, the same students may be rescheduled exactly as they were before the week as reset/re-created. If rescheduling does not assign the students as you would prefer, you are able to manually modify the schedule if you require additional modifications.

View Source Material For Week
On the generate/print schedule tab, when the view/edit link has been clicked to view the students scheduled for a particular week, the source material for that week is viewable through the TMS Source Material button.

After clicking on the Source Material button, the popup box displays the source material for quick reference to that week's schedule. This allows the school overseer to reference the talk theme and material when swapping students to make sure the correct student is assigned to handle each part. (view screen cap below).

Ministry School Schedule Material
      Ministry School Schedule Material


View Suggestions for Alternate Students for the Scheduled Week
On the generate/print schedule tab, when the view/edit link has been clicked to view the students scheduled for a particular week, the suggested alternate students are visible for that week through the Suggested Student Replacements button.

After clicking on the Suggested Student Replacements button, the popup box displays a list of Suggestions for Alternate Students for a quick reference to assist you to choose another student for a talk. This list includes the students who have not done the particular talk, in the particular school and have not given any talk for the longest period of time. By displaying three alternate students for each assignment, this allows the school overseer to easily find the best replacement student if a talk needs another student to be chosen. (view screen cap below).

Student History This button allows the overseer to view the last five talks of each of the students who are currently scheduled. Thus, instead of going out from the schedule edit screen by switching tabs to the student info tab and clicking student’s history link, and then go back again, now the students history info is available at a click of a button directly on the edit schedule screen to allow for a quick view of the student’s history. Although the scheduling algorithm is very good at randomizing the talks, the school overseer still has deeper insight as to what talks would fit the student best. When the school overseer is deciding what student to substitute for that talk, one important factor is who can do that talk, and who is next scheduled to do that talk. So the overseer would use the Suggested Student Replacements button to assist them deciding. However, if the overseer is going to choose another person that is not in the suggested list, then the overseer need to know when that students last talk was and their last talk given. The Student History button will be very helpful when deciding who would be best for that talk.
The overseer can change out a student with another, by selecting their name from the list of names that can do that particular talk for that talk row. Immediately after, they can click on the student history button to see this new student’s history to make sure they haven’t just given a talk recently or the same type of talk.

Printing a School Schedule

To print a schedule, first, a schedule will need to be created (for each week) that will populate and assign students to talks. Please refer to the user guide to create a TMS school schedule

Thus, after creating a schedule from the Generate/Print Schedule tab, clicking the Create links for each week needed for the printout, checkmark the weeks for printing, then click the print button. A popup box will appear asking you to save the .RTF Word edit file.

Note: Before printing the schedule, it may be necessary to modify/make changes/swap students to the schedule. To do this, click the View/Edit links for each week that will be on the schedule. You see students and the talks, for that school week. (note: assembly week will not have any students). For more information to modify the TMS school schedule, please view the TMS user guide.


Printing Slips Alignment Tab:

This was added to allow you to manually adjust the coordinates of the information printed on the school slips. Since the cutting of the slips at the branch could vary by a millimeter or two at each branch, or the printer prints a few millimeters different from other printers, this will allow you to customize the printing location for your printer using the official paper slips.

All measurements are in Inches. Remember that the measurements do not include the Left Margin that can also be adjusted to shift all other locations. The default Left Margin is set to 0.5 inches.

TMS Software Printing
To reset all measurements to the default values, click the reset link.
Remember to hit the save button after editing the slip locations to keep you changes.

Congregation Info Tab:

This tab allows you set the Congregation Name - as displayed on the School Schedule Printouts. Also you can change the number of schools. This will modify the source material weeks to now automatically schedule for the specific number of schools. Note: Weeks that have already been scheduled, their number of schools will not be modified upon any change.

You can modify the following Congregation Information:
  • Congregation Name [enter your congregation name]
  • Number of Schools [List – One, Two, Three schools]

The Meeting Day and Meeting Time are currently not being used, but may be used very soon in the future on future updates, perhaps for the overseer worksheet. Update these values as they could be used soon.
Remember to hit the save button after editing to save your changes.

Import/Backup Data Tab:

To Import from another TMS program:
If you have been using other Theocratic Ministry School programs, there may be a possibility to import data from these programs into TMS 2014.

Currently, the TMS 2014 program can import data from the 3rd party TMS Explorer Program and Wintm by following these steps:
  1. For TMS Explorer Users: Backup the data from the 3rd Party TMS Explorer program through the menu item File, Then click Backup, then click Backup Data File. The path would be written out as: File->Backup->Backup Data File (remember where the file was saved).
  2. Then, TMS Explorer Users: Close the TMS Explorer program. Start the TMS2014 program. Import the backup Zip file created by the TMS Explorer program by clicking on the "Import 3rd Party Data" button on the Import/Backup data tab in the TMS2011 program. In the popup file box, locate the file from step 1 and import.
  3. For WINTM Users: Start the TMS2014 program. Start the import by clicking on the "Import 3rd Party Data" button . Select the "c:\wintm\current.sd6" file in the import file popup box. (Note: locations may vary depending on installation directory on setup of Wintm).
  4. If successful, the student's names and profiles will now be imported. Please double check all the student information to verify an accurate import and update their profile if needed.
    Note: There are many different editions/versions of the TMS Explorer and WINTM programs. A successful import cannot be guaranteed.

To Backup your Student Data in TMS 2014:
To backup your current TMS 2014 data perform the following steps:
  1. On the 'Import/Backup Data' Tab, Click the [Backup Data] button and Enter the filename and location in the Save File box. Enter in a filename and location where you will remember the backup will be stored.
    Data backups are your responsibility. Please backup often.
    Note: It’s highly recommended to save the backup to an external device, such as a removable USB drive incase of hard drive crash.
To restore from Backup:
  1. On the 'Import/Backup Data' Tab, Click the [Restore from TMS Backup] button and Enter the Filename and Location of the backup file.
    Note: Backup your current data BEFORE restoring data from backup file. Click on the Backup data button first and read the steps to backup your current TMS 2014 data.

How to transfer all TMS information to a New Computer, New Windows Installation or New TMS installation.
  1. Start the TMS program that you have been currently using that has all the TMS data.
  2. On the 'Import/Backup Data' Tab click the button [Backup Data].
  3. Enter the filename and location in the Save File box.
    Note: Enter in a filename and location where you will remember the backup will be stored. Since you are moving the data from one computer to another (or to a new installation), save the backup to an external device, such as a removable USB drive for easy portability.
On your new installation computer:
  1. Download and Install the TMS Program and then Start the TMS software program.
  2. If you want to save the TMS data (if any) on your new TMS install, follow the steps as outlined above, using the [Backup Data] button. Note: the new TMS installation will probably not have any data to Backup since it was just installed.
  3. On the 'Import/Backup Data' Tab, Click the [Restore from TMS Backup] button and Enter the Filename and Location of the backup file from the USB drive or other backup device where the TMS data from the old computer/old TMS installation was saved.
  4. When restoring, it will ask if you would like to backup the current data (see step 2 to decide). Also, it will ask do you want to overwrite all data with the backup data.
  5. Done.

TMS software Import
Location of your TMS database
You may need to need to know the location of your database location for advance users who wish to do backups on their own without using the TMS program Backup Data button or in other situations. Sometimes the database location path is very long, so to capture the full database path, place your mouse cursor at the very left most area and hold the mouse down and slide right. The box will automatically scroll right if necessary.

The location of the database is in a location that Windows has predetermined. It is located on the Users directory for security reasons. This location allows Non administrators to use the database and TMS program without needing Administrator permissions. This is very important to reduce configuration in windows Vista. Unlike other Theocratic Ministry School programs, you can run TMS as Guest.

Also note the TMS Version Number in the top right corner. This version will help you determine if you have the most current version, and what new updates have been created by viewing the TMS Software updates page.


Hide School Schedule Weeks

In view of each new school year and schedule being added to the TMS database and also for this year's data, buttons have been added to the activation/registration tab to hide weeks that have already past. In the screen cap below, you will notice, From and To date dropdowns, Hide, Show, and Show All buttons.

hide show TMS school schedule weeks

For example last years data, or scheduled weeks from months ago, such as the start of this year. Of course, the schooloverseer/user will decide the date range of the TMS schedule data hidden from view. The data is not deleted, so it can be retrieved and displayed again with the show button.

Please note: updates are automatically pushed (automatically downloaded) to update the TMS program when a new update is available. However, before the TMS program is updated, a yes/no box will appear to ask for permission to update the TMS program. If the school overseer/user decides No/Skip, then the program will not be updated. Thus, the check for updates button will allow the schooloverseer/user to install the updates when they are ready at a later time by pressing this update button.

However, some years there has been substantial changes to the program to follow the organizations direction or changes to the Theocratic Ministry School. It will be necessary to visit the TMS website at the end of each year to see if the new TMS version is an update or full download Theocratic Ministry School Software Informaton and if a new update/version is available and then to Re-Activate and get a new activation key for the new TMS program through the TMS Activation/Re-activation page.

Activation/Registration Tab:

The trial version let's you enter students and schedule information, but the print button will be disabled. To enable printing, acquire an Activation Key or Renewal Key, click on the Acquire Activation / Renewal Key button. This will take you to the activation web page.

Active TMS software program

After successfully registering, the activation key will be sent to your email address. Enter the activation key on the provided text box on the Activate Tab and click the Activate/Renew Software Button. An Internet connection will be required to validate the activation key. After a successful activation, then the print button will be enabled for printing Schedules, Slips and Worksheets.

Languages:

Currently the TMS 2014 is now available in English, Spanish, French, Portuguese, German and Simplified Chinese. However, because of the flexibility of the program (especially self entry (or import of the JW.org schedule for English and Spanish), it can be used for almost any language.

Many computers/browsers are already setup to display these language font characters. However, if your computer needs additional fonts to display these languages, please refer to your operating system documentation for instructions.

TMS software in multilanguages
You now have the ability to switch between languages on the fly without needing to close the program. Change the Language on the Main Student Information Tab. The language you selected will cascade throughout the program. There is no need to close and restart the program. Now all created Schedules, Workbooks, Slips and all other printouts will have the Source Material References, Titles and Dates in the language selected.

How to Add Study and Setting Point Descriptions:

The study and setting points full text descriptions are optional since only the school overseer using the program will see them. They are for his reference only when using the program since some of the printouts will only contain the study and setting number if they are needed and not their text description. If you would like the study and setting point description in the program, you can copy and paste them from the Watchtower CD-ROM (found in the "Benefit From Theocratic Ministry School Education" book on pages 79-82).

User Guide Summary:

TMS 2014 has a very simple design and layout. It allows for a very easy and time efficient scheduling of your Theocratic Ministry School Data.
