recommended to us by our Circuit Overseer

I could go on and on about how all the features have helped our congregation

New World Scheduler is a fantastic program! This software has helped our congregation be more unified. Each publisher knows when they have an assignment, when arrangements for meetings and field service will take place, and reminds them to turn in their monthly reports… all thanks to the New World Publisher app that pairs perfectly with the Scheduler program. I could go on and on about how all the features have helped our congregation be more organized.
As a congregation secretary, this software makes my assignment so much easier. I can’t thank the brothers and sisters responsible for creating NWS enough for putting together this ever improving tool!

This by far is the best and easiest I have ever used

I have been the Congregation Secretary for many years. I have had a few different programs designed for the use by the congregations. This by far is the best and easiest I have ever used. The friends love it and it makes my assignment a whole lot easier.
Thank you Brothers for the work you put in to designing it.

It was simple to set up … everyone agrees that it saves time

Excellent app. Only gets better when other congregations start using it.

A Schedule is all about communicating…
Using an ‘app’ like this one is the most effective way to communicate to everyone inside the congregation and also to other congregations (ie for Public Talks)…
Much simpler to create and less time consuming to deliver … than printed schedules being emailed, revised and reprinted …also eliminates multiple versions of schedules.

One great advantage is all schedulers are able work together to avoid overlap in assignments. Plus much better coordination with outgoing and visiting speakers.

All with assignments have input… “away times” for instance.
It was simple to set up … all in the congregation became familiar with the app quickly and everyone appreciated its effectiveness.

We have used this app for about 6 months and everyone agrees that it saves time for schedulers, we have yet to see someone unaware that they have had an assignment… other that those outside the congregation that have not started using the app … yet.

it’s a true blessing to the entire organization

Oh… so want feedback huh. Let me tell you something about this awesome program. It’s AWESOME. Our congregation has recently began using it and the friends are loving it. It’s so easy to use and it’s a true blessing to the entire organization. On my end as the congregation administrator, having unified information has been a timesaver. Thank you so much for the selflessness in creating and maintaining this amazing program.

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.
