TSWin (also called Tswin) 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 TSWin.
What is TSWin?
TSWin is an unofficial JW software program designed for congregation secretaries of Jehovah’s Witnesses. It allows JW congregation secretaries to maintain electronic Publisher Cards, Field Service reports and other congregation secretary responsibilities.
TSWin and JW Scheduler Features
TSWin and JW Scheduler Key Differences
TSwin has been designed for JW Congregation Secretaries, and therefore doesn’t include any scheduling ability, and limited other functions.
JW Scheduler has been designed for every elder in the congregation, including JW Congregation secretaries. Therefore JW Scheduler includes scheduling and many more functions.
TSWin has been designed to by used by only the JW Congregation Secretary, and doesn’t really have any way to share or synchronize data, other than manually exporting and importing.
JW Scheduler has a special 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 the Congregation at all times.
Of course, Congregation Sharing can be disabled if you prefer.
Viewing the Publisher Records and other data
TSWin can print or create many reports about your congregation and members.
JW Scheduler also can print or create many reports about your congregation and members.
In addition, JW Scheduler has a free Publisher Edition iOS and Android App, where publishers and appointed brothers can see upcoming Christian Life and Ministry meeting assignments, Public Talk assignments, Weekend meeting assignments, Duties and Cleaning assignments.
Midweek & Weekend Meeting and Field Service schedules are also readily available, as well as Congregation Events & Congregation Announcements.
Publishers can also submit their Field Service Reports using the App.
