Program Language. The language of the program. This can be different to your Congregation Language, which is especially helpful for language learners or those serving where the need is greater.

Date Format. The date format shown in various parts of the program, including on some reports and schedules.

Short Date Format. The short date format shown in various parts of the program, including on most reports and schedules.

Time format. Tick if you want times to be shown in 24-hour time.

Paper Size. The default Paper Size for all Templates and Schedules.

  • Note: Each time you use a template, JW Scheduler will remember the last template used, and set this as your default. This will override the default Paper Size. This means if you previously used a certain A4 template but your default Paper Size is Letter, JW Scheduler will still set that template to the previous A4 one you used.

Backup Reminder. How often you want to be reminded to make a Manual Backup of your data.

  • Note: Even though JW Scheduler creates an Automatic Backup, we still strongly recommend regularly creating a manual Backup and saving this offsite, somewhere safe. If your entire computer crashes, is destroyed or stolen, an offsite backup will allow you to restore all your data. If you or other brothers using JW Scheduler do not create an offsite backup, there will be no way to restore your data.
