Release Notes

NEW FEATURES
  • 64-bit Version. We are pleased to announce a 64-bit version of NW Scheduler. Our installer will automatically install the 64-bit version on 64-bit computers, and the 32-bit version on older 32-bit computers. A 64-bit application can use more Virtual Memory, which should make it run faster and improve the Territory map view. Note: If you have a 64-bit computer, you may need to remove any old shortcuts.
  • Online Meeting Attendance. We’ve now split Meeting Attendance to In Person and Online. We hope this helps elders identify trends and encourage more to return to in person meetings.
