Export for Circuit Overseer

JW Scheduler works with various Circuit Overseers to help us better understand what information they need when visiting congregations, and help them better access this data.

JW Scheduler currently supports the following methods to send your congregation data to Circuit Overseers:

Please ask your Circuit Overseer which method he prefers. He might request data using multiple methods.

Export for CO (Circuit Overseer)

This allows all your Congregation and Member data to be securely exported and sent to your Circuit Overseer in JW Scheduler format. Your Circuit Overseer can then open your congregation in JW Scheduler and see your data.

  • Note: They will not be able to edit or change your data. Congregation Sharing and JWS Publisher App will be automatically disabled for them. They do not need to register. Free access is automatically given to all Circuit Overseers who import congregation data.
