Common Questions and Problems

New World Scheduler includes many default Literature Items.

No. It isn’t the publishers concern what happens to their request after they make it. E.G. They don’t need to know how and when an item is ordered from the branch, or when it arrives at the congregation.

JW Schedules tries hard to imitate the real-world ‘paper’ system as much as possible, and not introduce unnecessary complications.

For example, a publisher requests a literature item from the literature servant, and then some time later they receive it. That is the way it is supposed to be done, and that is what New World Scheduler does.

No. If you wish to add a Literature Items that doesn’t fit in any of the categories, please use the Other category.
