I would like to see more visual distinction between speeches that have been performed vs, requested and scheduled. When I am looking at the existing chart, the different color checkmarks don't make it easy to make the distinction.

I would like to see different icons for requested and scheduled. An example would be a circle or box for requested and a little calendar icon for scheduled.

Thanks.

How about this as an idea?? I thought a clock was maringally preferable to a calendar, but I'd like to hear what other people think...

Very good. The distinction is perfect, and unlike the colored check marks this will result in correct print outs on black&white printers.

I like the idea but am not certain about the question mark - makes me think there is some uncertainty over the speech rather than it's date.

Do you have a counter-suggstion Malcolm? I don't think the little man with the bubble is clear enough at this size...

In defense of the question mark:
1) You are 'requesting' speech. Requests normally have q-marks, don't they?
2) It really is questionable at the time of the request, surely - could easily be cancelled, couldn't it?

Anyway...in my club everything's questionable Smile - i think I mentioned before that our more advanced speakers might not decide which workbook until much nearer the time...still need to think about how we can handle that one!
