When exporting schedules or creating Live Schedule Posts within MSP, we can specify that only certain services are included in our exported schedule or Live Schedule Post. In this article, we will discuss recommendations for exporting only the service times corresponding to a particular language. One thing to keep in mind is we will still need to create a schedule for all services -- regardless of language -- at the same time, because we cannot have more than one master schedule for a given time period.
For example, let's say our church has both English-language services and Spanish-language services. By using the controls in the Export Schedule dialog box (when exporting schedules) and the Online layout and options dialog box (when creating Live Schedule Posts) we can easily choose to export only English-language services or only Spanish-language services.
In the Included Services section, select only the service times that correspond to the particular language we would like to export. For example, if the times for the English-language services are:
Saturday 5:00 pm
Sunday 9:00 am
Sunday 12:00 pm
...we will want to include only the Saturday 5:00 PM, Sunday 9:00 AM and Sunday 12:00 PM services by selecting them:
This will export a schedule or create a Live Schedule Post containing only the English-language services.
Once we have exported our English-only schedule or created our English-only Live Schedule Post, we can then repeat the process with the Spanish-language service time(s) to export a schedule or create a Live Schedule Post for the Spanish-language service(s).
