Add, Edit or Update Emergency Contacts using JWS Publisher App

If you have enabled the JWS Publisher App, publishers can add, edit or update their Emergency Contacts from within the App. They can then send this information for importing into JW Scheduler.

Please see Check Emergency Contact Details from JWS Publisher for more information.

Emergency Contacts Received from the App

After Importing the Emergency contacts from the App, they will appear in each Members Emergency Contact List.

If the publisher added an Emergency Contact who is in the congregation, or they marked an existing contact as “in your congregation”, you need to Link that contact to the congregation member. To remind you, the words *Not Linked* are appended to the Emergency Contact name.

How to Link an Emergency Contact

  1. Click New from Congregation.
  2. Select the member.
  3. Remove the previous unlinked person.
