Share Congregation

It is often a challenge for all elders to keep up-to-date with all congregation matters. Therefore, JW Scheduler has been designed so that all Elders and appointed brothers can quickly and easily view, organise and schedule congregation assignments. 

JW Scheduler allows appointed brothers to automatically & instantly synchronize and share all congregation, member and schedule information.
