How to choose which Public Talk Outline should be given?

When selecting the Public Talk Outline, JW Scheduler will show a list of all available Public Talk Outlines.

This list will also be shaded in red, depending on when the outline was last given. A Dark Red means the Outline has either recently been given or will be given in the future, whereas a Light Red shade means the Public Talk has not been given for a long time. No shade (white) means the Public Talk Outline has either never been given in your congregation, or has not been given for a very long time.

How to enter past Public Talk History?

When you first start using JW Scheduler, you might like to enter your congregation’s past Public Talk History. This will ensure you don’t repeat two Public Talk Outlines in a short period of time.

To enter past Public Talk History:

  1. Click Enter Past History button.
  2. Select the Year and Month.
  3. Enter any Public Talk Outlines that were given in that month.
  4. Click OK.

How to Schedule Weekend Assignments

  • Note: You can use Auto-Assign to automatically select Weekend Assignments
  1. Select the Meeting you wish to Schedule.
  2. Click the Chairman, Watchtower Reader, Closing Prayer and/or Hospitality buttons.
    1. Note: The Closing Prayer should normally be given by the Public Speaker. Therefore scheduling the Closing Prayer should only be considered a backup incase the speaker leaves early. If the speaker will give the Closing Prayer, simply leave this blank. That is normal.
  3. Select the Chairman member, Watchtower Reader, Closing Prayer and Hospitality member or group.
  4. Click OK

How to Auto-Assign Chairman, Watchtower Reader & other Weekend Duties

Auto-Assign is a feature in JW Scheduler that allows the Coordinator of the Body of Elders or Public Talk Coordinator to automatically schedule the JW Weekend duties, such as Chairman, Watchtower Reader and Public Speak Hospitality.

This can save much time and ensure members are evenly scheduled. However this must be used with discretion. Please see JW Scheduler Auto-Assign for more information about how Auto-Assign works, and how to best use Auto-Assign.
