Language Groups

New World Scheduler provides comprehensive Language Group support, allowing the congregation to setup one or more Language Groups.

Language Group support is integrated directly into New World Scheduler, with the following options available:

  1. Add Congregation Events for a Language Group, e.g. Circuit Assemblies or Circuit Overseer visits.
  2. Record Meeting Attendance for a Language Group
  3. Schedule the Life and Ministry Meeting for a Language Group
  4. Schedule Local Public Talks for a Language Group
  5. Schedule Field Service for a Language Group
  6. Scheduling Cleaning or Garden Care for a Language Group

A Language Group can have their own unique Language, Meeting Day and Time.

Language Group schedules and assignments are fully supported by NW Publisher app, and will show on both the Life and Ministry Meeting and Weekend Meeting schedules, with a Language symbol.

Scheduling Duties

Language Groups do not have their own “duties” or duty schedule. This includes Hospitality. This is a limitation of Language Groups.

Instead, please use one of the many NW Scheduler Custom Duties. You can use any of these custom duties to schedule duties for a Language Group.

Please see Scheduling > Duties
