Member Information

JW Scheduler allows you to store lots of useful and valuable information about congregation Members. This information can be kept up-to-date by the elders and automatically shared among all congregation elders.

Additionally, JW Scheduler is also very flexible. You can enter as little or much information as you want. In fact there is no requirement to add anything more than the first name!

Member Information can be found on the Members > Information.
