JW Scheduler strongly 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. JW Scheduler supports Importing and Exporting Members into a variety of common file formats.
Unfortunately, some software companies go to great lengths to lock users in and do not provide ways to export Member or Field Service data. While we feel this practise is unethical and actually illegal in some countries, there is little we can do.
- Note: If you have not yet created a JW Scheduler Congregation, please see Create a Congregation or Import a Congregation. The following information is only for importing Members into an existing JW Scheduler Congregation.
- Note: You should not enable Congregation Sharing until after all Importing has been fully completed. If Congregation Sharing is already enabled, it is best to disable before importing.
