Transfer or Export Persons

New World Scheduler strongly believes your congregation and person data is your own, and you should be able to Import and Export your data as you wish. We also believe it is fair and right to allow data exchange between other scheduling programs.

Therefore, New World Scheduler supports transferring persons to other congregations using New World Scheduler, and other congregations who don’t use New World Scheduler. New World Scheduler also supports exporting your data to CSV file, Timothy and Circuit Assistant.

  • Note: Timothy and Circuit Assistant are two programs used by many Circuit Overseers to help them manage data for congregations in their Circuit. We are working directly with Circuit Overseers to ensure New World Scheduler remains compatible with these programs, and we are committed to designing and updating New World Scheduler so it can be useful and helpful to our hard-working Circuit Overseers!

Transfer Persons

    • Note: If you are transferring many persons, for example because a congregation is splitting or merging, first create a Field Service Group called “Transfer” or similar, then move these persons into this group. Finally select the group “transfer” and you can now transfer all persons in that “transfer” group.
