Registration supports the development and maintenance of JW Scheduler. It shows appreciation for the considerable time and resources involved in developing this program. The Apostle Paul worked as a tentmaker to support his ministry, I work as a part-time software developer to support my full-time ministry.
Even those of limited financial means can Register. Your support is greatly appreciated.
“The worker is worthy of his wages.” – Luke 10:7
Do I have to Register?
No, since JW Scheduler comes in two versions: Free Version and Full Version.
When you first download JW Scheduler, you can use the Full Version for 60 days, after which it will revert to the Free Version. You do not need to Register to use the Free Version, but are most welcome to. You need to please register to use the Full Version for more than 60 days.

INDIVIDUAL Registration costs $10 USD for one year. This allows you to personally use the Full Version of JW Scheduler on all your personal computers. We feel this is a fair and reasonable amount that the majority of friends will be able to afford.
If you are the only brother in your congregation using JW Scheduler and you do not anticipate others will use it in the future, then INDIVIDUAL Registration might be best for you.
CONGREGATION Registration costs $30 USD for one year. This allows all appointed brothers in your congregation to use the Full Version of JW Scheduler on all their personal computers. We feel this is a fair and reasonable amount that the majority of congregations will be able to afford.
If multiple brothers in your congregation use JW Scheduler, or might use JW Scheduler in the future, then CONGREGATION Registration might be best for you.
Many congregations view this registration cost as a standard congregation operating expense.
LIMITED FINANCIAL MEANS Registration
LIMITED FINANCIAL MEANS Registration is available to those who feel the INDIVIDUAL or CONGREGATION registration would impose too large a financial burden. We recognise that not all our friends have equal financial means and some live in very poor countries. They may choose to donate an amount instead. Any donation of $2 USD or more will receive an INDIVIDUAL Registration key for one year.
