Open a Congregation

JW Scheduler allows appointed brothers to schedule and organize the Christian Life and Ministry meeting, Public Talks, JW Secretary , Attendants, Sound, Platform, Microphones, Kingdom Hall Cleaning, Field Service Groups and much more!

But the first step is to Create, Open or Import a Congregation.

If someone else in your congregation already uses JW Scheduler and has already created a JW Scheduler Congregation, then you should Open a Congregation.

In order to Open a Congregation from Sharing: Another elder must have already created a JW Scheduler Congregation and then Enabled Congregation Sharing. He must then tell you the Congregation ID and Congregation Password.

In order to Open a Congregation from File: Another elder must have already created a JW Scheduler Congregation and then clicked Backup Congregation. This will create a backup congregation file. He must then give or send you this file.
