Compare JW Scheduler with TSWin

JW Scheduler and TSWin are JW apps or theocratic software programs designed to help JW Congregation Secretaries manage Publisher Cards, Field Service reports and other congregation secretary responsibilities. JW Scheduler can also schedule the Life and Ministry Meeting, Public Talks, Duties, Cleaning and Garden Care.

Both JW apps have similarities, and do a great job of helping JW secretaries.

We invite you to see JW Scheduler and TSWin side-by-side and explore the differences for yourself. That way you can determine which one better suits your needs and the needs of the brothers in your congregation.

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.

We hope you find JW Scheduler quick & easy to use, which hopefully saves you time for the more important things: spending time with your family, preaching and shepherding.

Note: It is now possible to Import TSWin data directly into JW Scheduler. So if you are currently using TSWin and would like to try JW Scheduler, simply open JW Scheduler > click Import from TSWin.

User Interface

JW Scheduler uses the latest MVVM Windows 10 programming techniques to create a modern User Interface. This is very similar to the design and layout of the JW Library app. The fonts are large and easy to read. Colors are used to make the program more appealing and provide direct feedback, for example when a CLM part has been scheduled. The buttons are large, easy to click and change colour on hover.

  • Colorful and appealing

Saving and Backups

There are no Save buttons anywhere in JW Scheduler. This is because everything saves automatically! There is never any need to press “Save”. Backups are also automatically created every time the program is closed, with the last 15 backups kept.
