something for everyone

I am not a computer giant by any means, but I really love what you have done with this program.
It really gives us everything we need to have to carry out our assignments. I appreciate how it has something for everyone in the congregation, especially those who make the assignments. And to have the phone app to include the publishers is genius. Thank you for all your hard work.

exceptional tools to help congregations “let all things take place by arrangement”

Your programs have been very helpful in communicating and keeping everyone up to date on events, schedules, announcements, etc. Everyone has the information right at their finger tips and notifications of assignments is great! Submitting field service reports has also been very helpful to our secretary, and publishers having their own history is nice. The new feature of the field service activity calendar is really useful. Thanks so much for the public witnessing schedule. That is proving to be very useful. The reports that can be generated is very comprehensive. Overall, the JWS and NWP are exceptional tools to help congregations “let all things take place by arrangement”.

Thank you!

I don’t see how I could keep everything straight without your software

You have a great product and I don’t see how I could keep everything straight without your software. It eliminates stress from an assignment that takes so much into account.

How does New World Scheduler compare with similar programs and apps?

Our intention is not to criticize other software programs, since we are all “standing firm in one spirit, with one soul, striving side by side for the faith of the good news” – Philippians 1:27.

Instead, we invite you to explore the differences between New World Scheduler and these other programs for yourself.

“Thank you for having a ‘Comparison’ page. It was very helpful when trying out new programs!” – Brother Mike, USA

Data can be imported from Majestic KHS, Hourglass app, TSWin, CLM Explorer, Territory Helper, and CSV file into New World Scheduler.

New World Scheduler strongly believes your congregation and member 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.
