Import from Hourglass

JW Scheduler and JW Hourglass are JW apps or theocratic software programs designed to help JW congregation elders maintain congregation Publisher Record Cards and Field Service Reports.

Both JW apps have similarities, and are very useful tools for the congregation secretary.

If you are currently using JW Hourglass, we invite you to give JW Scheduler a try. That way you can determine which app better suits your needs and the needs of the brothers in your congregation.
