Thorough and comprehensive program and database to track all scheduling needs for the Congregation. Very well thought out, intuitive, and easy to use. There is exhaustive Help information to answer any questions that arise. The program just works splendidly and I recommend it to any Congregation! Very nice work brothers and sisters – thank you! Jehovah is certainly blessing your work.

I literally cannot believe what a massive organizational upgrade we were given in a short period of time using this platform

The scriptures that come to mind is that:
1) God not a God of disorder and
2) let all things take place … by arrangment

This app has been indispensable as regards reporting of field service time, arranging the cart preaching at different locations, knowing every single assigned brother for every duty at the meeting. Before I was scrambling through papers never finding the right schedule and form and now it is all here. I appreciate the reminders such as when to assign an audit.

We are excited to start using the territory feature as we saw a need to have some digital territory delivery during COVID but doing this by email and scanning each territory was time consuming with poor picture quality.

Another great feature is how various brothers with different assignments can all have limited editing roles for attendants, sound and video, talks and so forth.

We looked into the security features of this app versus other ones and we felt comfortable with how NWS does end to end encryption and doesn’t store unencrypted and sensitive data on a public server.

I literally cannot believe what a massive organizational upgrade we were given in a short period of time using this platform. We had reservations about older ones using it, but they love it. It is intuitive and easy to use and they feel a lot more ‘in the know’ about what is going on in the congregation with it.

Thank you!

I love the application. It’s very powerful and well thought out. Specifically I really like the reminders of the home page of the task that are needed to be completed and how everyone is connected to keep everyone of the same page. Thank you for your hard work in endeavoring to make our responsibilities easier and more efficient in caring for the congregation.

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, Deckhand, CLM Explorer, Territory Helper, Alba, 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.
