We would like our Members to be able to select the speaker role of their choice without the requriement of an approval or confirmation.   I attempted to change the permission for this in the Club Control Panel but when I select 'save', that feature remains unchanged.  Could someone provide the steps to take in order for our Club to enable that capability in Meeting Roles.  We are planning to switch to easy-Speak on Tuesday, April 10, and would like to have this completed before we go live.  Thank you

This is not possible in easy-Speak.  

Speakers may provide a preference for a date, but an approved officer or the Toastmaster must make the final allocation.  This is based on our experience of Best Practice around the world.  easy-Speak gives the tools for the VPE and other officers to do a great job - assigning speeches is one of the most important of those roles we feel.

How about giving us the option?  Our club has gotten used to being able to just sign right up for a speech, which is also less work for the VPE.

Thanks,

Dave

That is really unfortunate.  We will continue with Free Toast Host and use easy-Speak as a management tool only.

Leeros,

There is a work around for a member who is not an officer but probably frowned upon some officers and admin.  I have found and inform those fast track members that if the Speaker role is opened as well as the TM, the person can select himself as the TM, put himself as a speaker and then cancel out as TM or keep the role as well as speak.  I know when I was not an officer, that was a big frustration but discovered this work around.  However, your club should have 7 officers who can help members who really want to take that empty slot or the member can call the TM to be added in so you really should try this before giving up on utilizing ES.
