Import Public Speakers

JW Scheduler believes your congregation and member data is your own, and you should be able to Import and Export your data as you wish. We also believe that as true Christians, it is both reasonable and right to allow data exchange between other JW scheduling programs.

For this reason, JW Scheduler supports Importing and Exporting data into a variety of common file formats.

Unfortunately, not all software companies agree with us and some make great efforts to stop people changing software. It can sometimes be difficult to export your data from other software programs, but we try our best to help you.

JW Scheduler Import Public Speakers from Majestic KHS or CSV file

Import from another Congregation using JW Scheduler

  1. Ask the other congregation to Export their Public Speakers as a JW Scheduler file. (See Export Public Speakers heading below)
  2. Click Congregation > Neighbor Congregations and Public Speakers
  3. Click Import
  4. Click from JW Scheduler file
  5. Locate the file on your computer, and click Open
  6. The Public Speakers will then be imported.

Import from another Congregation NOT using JW Scheduler

from Majestic KHS

Unfortunately KHS was recently updated to prevent their users from exporting Public Speaker data in a meaningful format. We do not understand why they would do this, but there is nothing we can do.

You could contact KHS and kindly ask them to allow you to export your Public Speakers for sending to another congregation.

from CSV file

  • Note: If the First name and Last name exactly match an existing public speaker, the public speaker will be merged. Otherwise a new public speaker will be created.
  1. Ensure your CSV file is comma delimited
  2. Ensure your CSV file includes a HEADER row which describes the fields
  3. Ensure your CSV file is saved with the extension .csv
  4. Ensure your CSV file only contains Supported CSV Fields below
  5. Click Congregation > Neighbor Congregations and Public Speakers
  6. Create or Select the existing Neighbor Congregation the speakers should be imported into
  7. Click Import
  8. Click from CSV file
  9. Locate the file on your computer, and click Open
  10. The Public Speakers will then be imported into the selected congregation
