CLM Explorer (also called The Christian Life and Ministry Meeting Scheduler for 2020) and JW Scheduler are apps or theocratic software programs designed for Jehovah’s Witnesses. The two JW software programs have some similarities and some differences.
Our intention is not to criticize other software programs, since we are all “standing firm in one spirit, with one soul, striving side by side for the faith of the good news” – Philippians 1:27.
Instead, we invite you to compare the similarities and differences between JW Scheduler and CLM Explorer.
What is CLM Explorer?

CLM Explorer and JW Scheduler Features
CLM Explorer and JW Scheduler Key Differences
CLM Explorer has been designed for the COBE and CLMO to schedule the Life and Ministry meeting, and therefore has limited other functions.
JW Scheduler has been designed for every elder in the congregation, including the COBE and CLMO. Therefore JW Scheduler can schedule the Life and Ministry meeting as well as many other things.
CLM Explorer has been designed to share data between the COBE and CLMO.
JW Scheduler also has feature called Congregation Sharing. This allows all congregation and schedule data to be automatically and securely shared to all other appointed brothers in your congregation. Congregation Sharing helps all elders keep up-to-date with what is happening in all areas of the Congregation.
Of course, Congregation Sharing can be disabled if you prefer.
