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.
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.
