Public Speakers

JW Scheduler Public Speakers allows you to add Neighbor Congregations and Neighbor Public Speakers, which are then used for quickly and easily scheduling Public Talks. You can also edit your own Public Speakers from this screen.

Additionally, Public Speakers can Import and Export Public Speakers from any neighboring congregations also using JW Scheduler. If a neighboring congregation is not using JW Scheduler, you can still add them, and still print reports of your Public Speakers for them.

To Add and Edit Public Speakers and Neighboring Congregations, click Congregation > Public Speakers
