To schedule the Circuit Overseer for a public talk:

  • Go to the Speakers screen and add a new congregation named Circuit Overseer. You need to select a meeting time even though this is just a place-holder congregation name.
  • Now add the CO to the list of speakers for this congregation.
  • Add outline 1 to his list of talks; it also is just a place-holder.
  • Return to the Public Talks screen and rather than click Find Speaker, click on the Speaker field. The Find Speaker box will be displayed but close it, your cursor should still be in the Speaker field. Now start typing the CO's name until it auto-completes.
  • Do NOT enter any outline number.
  • Click on the Title field and hand enter the name of his talk.
  • You can also enter the name of his concluding talk in the Notes field (renamed to Concluding talk)

When the CO and his wife move onto their next assignment simply change the names on the Speakers screen to the new circuit overseer.
