New World Scheduler 7.0


Welcome to NW Scheduler 7.0, our biggest new release ever!

We have added many new features, updates, improvements and fixes to make NW Scheduler quicker and easier to use.

The biggest new feature is Territories. This means congregations can now fully integrate territories into NW Scheduler, including drawing boundaries, adding addresses, letter writing and phone witnessing maps, and much more. The new Territory functions are very flexible, allowing congregations to use them according to local circumstances.

These advanced Territory Features have been added to a new Congregation Gold Registration type. Territory features and modules are very expensive, and we do not want to place this added expense on congregations who will not use them. You can draw several Territory boundaries and add some addresses to evaluate before upgrading.

We have also added many useful features and updates to the NW Publisher app, including added security and enhanced encryption. After updating, a Congregation Administrator must click App > Update. This will allow publishers using the new NW Publisher app 3.0 to connect.

Finally, we’ve been working hard to improve the User Interface of NW Scheduler. Many features are much easier to use, especially Circuits, Congregations and Public Speakers and Public Speaker Sharing.
