Congregation Sharing

JW Scheduler Congregation Sharing allows any approved appointed brother to automatically share and synchronize all JW Scheduler data and schedules. This allows all elders in your congregation to easily keep up-to-date with what is happening in the congregation.

Benefits of Congregation Sharing

In many congregations of Jehovah’s Witnesses, each elder or ministerial servant uses a different program, spreadsheet or method to create schedules, maintain lists, and assign talks and parts. This results in duplicate work, duplicate lists, inconsistent schedules and much wasted time and effort. It is harder to train new brothers, and harder to ensure all data is secure.

JW Scheduler Congregation Sharing solves all these problems.

Create and maintain just one list of publishers and one congregation. Then each brother can use JW Scheduler to handle their own responsibilities, and all data can be automatically and securely shared to all other appointed brothers.

All data is secure and accurate. Errors are reduced. Training new brothers is easier. Reports and Schedules are appealing and look consistent. Publishers are presented with a unified approach from the Body of Elders. Everyone saves time.

For example...

Coordinator of the Body of Elders (COBE)

Uses JW Scheduler to schedule all non-student parts of the midweek Life and Ministry Meeting and maintain Congregation Assignments.

Christian Life & Ministry Meeting Overseer

Uses JW Scheduler to schedule all student parts of the midweek Life and Ministry Meeting and print reports and assignment slips.

Congregation Secretary

Uses JW Scheduler to enter Field Service Reports, maintain Publisher Record cards and submit the monthly Field Service report.

Field Service Overseer

Uses JW Scheduler to schedule congregation Field Service meetings and maintain Field Service Groups.

Public Talk Coordinator

Uses JW Scheduler to schedule Local and Away Public Talks, as well as maintain Neighbor Public Speakers and congregation information.

Attendants Servant

Uses JW Scheduler to schedule congregation duties, such as Attendants, as well as record the Meeting Attendance

Kingdom Hall Servant

Uses JW Scheduler to schedule congregation Kingdom Hall cleaning and Lawn and Garden care.

Audio Video Servant

Uses JW Scheduler to schedule congregation duties such as Sounds, Video, Microphones and Platform.

Group Overseers

Use JW Scheduler to see the field service information of all members in their group, so they can promptly follow-up and provide assistance.

All other Elders

Use JW Scheduler to see all the above data and keep up-to-date with everything that is happening in the congregation.

Congregation Sharing User Access

Congregation Sharing is designed only for appointed brothers. Even so, not all appointed brothers would need to be able to edit or access all parts of JW Scheduler.

For example, you might want only the COBE and CLMO to edit the Christian Life and Ministry schedule, or the Attendant Servant to only have access to scheduling Duties.

Therefore, JW Scheduler Congregation Sharing allows specific User Access to be assigned to each Shared Member. This limits what each brother can View or Edit.

How does Congregation Sharing work?

Congregation Sharing does not store any confidential data online, therefore is fully compliant with sfl. All data is encrypted, and stored on your personal computer. Only the changes are transferred between brothers computers, and these changes are encrypted.

Congregation Sharing is also fully compliant with the strict European GDPR Privacy Laws, since the data is never accessed by anyone outside of the European Union.

Only elders added to your Congregation Sharing Member List can access your congregation, and they require the Congregation ID and Congregation Password. All Congregation Sharing transactions are logged.
