This program has changed the way our congregation operates for the better! We have used it for 7 months now and the elder body and the entire congregation continue to rave about the NW Publisher App and how connected they feel. Thank you so much for all the hard work you have put into developing such an outstanding tool!

I recommend that every congregation should make use of it

This application is very useful for the congregation. It allows publishers to turn in their field service report, check assignments, read announcements for the cong. and changes to the schedule whenever necessary. I recommend that every congregation should make use of it.

we made the switch and have had no regrets

After test driving JWS two years ago we made the switch and have had no regrets. There were multiple benefits, one of which was the companion app JWS Publisher. Publishers can submit their ministry reports directly without service group overseers needing to export a separate file to the congregation secretary, get reminders of upcoming assignments, get announcements, etc. Each subsequent update adds more functions you can actually use and not just ‘fluff’. Key reminders “My Tasks” such as quarterly audits and meeting with those baptized for a year are invaluable. Another plus is that one license covers everyone in the congregation that needs to use the desktop version. It’s a well thought out application.

JWS is our go-to for almost everything to do with congregation scheduling

JWS is our go-to for almost everything to do with congregation scheduling. It has been used for about a year and continues to improve and become more useful. The publishers love the APP, and it is very easy to send out announcements and changes to the various schedules as alerts to the respective recipients, or everyone as the case may require. The recent ‘ME’ section is very helpful as some congregation roles, such as CoBoE, have many matters to care for and JWS makes it easier.

How does JW Scheduler compare with similar programs and apps?

Our intention is not to criticize other software programs, since we are all “standing firm in one spirit, with one soul, striving side by side for the faith of the good news” – Philippians 1:27.

Instead, we invite you to explore the differences between JW Scheduler and these other programs for yourself.

“Thank you for having a ‘Comparison’ page. It was very helpful when trying out new programs!” – Brother Mike, USA

Data can be imported from Majestic KHS, Hourglass app, TSWin, CLM Explorer, Territory Helper, and CSV file into JW Scheduler.

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 it is fair and right to allow data exchange between other scheduling programs.
