Circuits, Congregations & Public Speakers

New World Scheduler Circuits, Congregations & Public Speakers allows you to add circuits, neighbor congregations and public speakers. You can then quickly and easily schedule Public Talks. You can also edit your own Away Public Speakers from this screen.

Additionally, Public Speakers can Import and Export Public Speakers from any neighboring congregations. If a neighboring congregation is not using New World Scheduler, you can still add them, and still print reports of your Public Speakers for them.

To Add and Edit Circuits, Congregations and Public Speakers, click Congregation > Circuits, Congregations & Speakers

  • Circuits, Congregations & Speakers has been designed to work with Public Speaker Sharing. This allows you to automatically share and sync public speaker data with nearby congregations.

Circuits

Circuits help organize Neighbor Congregations and Public Speakers, thus making it quicker and easier to schedule Public Talks.

  • Note: If Public Speaker Sharing has been enabled, any shared Neighbor Congregations and Public Speakers are automatically organized into Circuits.

Naming Circuits

Circuit Names should please follow the same format as given by your local branch, but without the “subdivisions” or “sections”.

  • E.G. N-10-A should be N-10

The only exception is foreign language Circuits, which may decide to keep the “section” to differentiate themselves from the local language.

  • E.G. NJ-12-S

Since each branch territory names circuits differently, NW Scheduler does not restrict the Circuit Name.

Add or Edit Circuits

  1. Up the top-left, click the Edit Circuits button
  2. You can now create New Circuits, Delete existing Circuits or edit the Circuit Name

Common Questions and Problems

Your own congregation is automatically added and will always appear first at the top. It can’t be removed.

If you see it listed twice, this means it was manually added. You should not do this, so please remove the second listing.
