The program is robust, providing many features that benefit large and small congregations, yet the flexibility in its design

Absolutely wonderful. The program is robust, providing many features that benefit large and small congregations, yet the flexibility in its design allows smaller congregations to use the features suited for them. Pricing is so reasonable. Our congregation only recently started using NWS, along with the NWP for congregation publisher use. The friends love having all scheduling information at their fingertips, and we hope to start using the territory portion of the program as well. Thank you for all the effort that goes into maintaining the program.

Truly epitomizes the admonition to, “let all things take place decently and by arrangement”

not only the best congregation managing tool out there, but it’s also incredibly user-friendly

I absolutely love the program! It is not only the best congregation managing tool out there, but it’s also incredibly user-friendly. With everything under one roof, it’s a breeze to keep our appointed brothers up to date with the many scheduling updates that occur each week.

The training videos are a true game-changer, providing invaluable support to new members. They not only help in understanding and managing congregation responsibilities but also empower them to contribute effectively. The Congregation Publishers find great comfort in the reminders, easy access to current schedules, events, and announcements, and the ability to submit their monthly field service reports.

As the Congregation Secretary, this program has been a game-changer for me. It has streamlined my tasks, from managing monthly, semi-annually, and yearly reports to emergency contact information and away times. The reminders referencing the sfl book are a great help. This program ensures all our appointed brothers can fulfill their responsibilities promptly. Keep up the excellent work, brothers!

well supported. always being updated and keeps up with organisation changes

excellent app. well supported. always being updated and keeps up with organisation changes. firewalls and security config is excellent. complies with branch requirements. if you do any schedules, or / and you are on the service committee, this app is will save you time and energy. with the mobile app, reduces the ‘oh i forgot’ scenario to zero – completely removes excuses as its easy to track your assignments without have to look at a dozen schedules which constantly need updating. i have used for 4 years and with 3 different congregations, been a winner and accepted with joy every time. if i have to move congregation again, my first question now is; do you have the NW app? i dread the answer could be no…..

clearly a labour of love

Having been involved in various capacities where administration is required in the congregation, I can plainly see that those involved in developing this app have given much (dare I say, prayerful) thought and leveraged a wealth of experience in blending together what is really a half dozen or more apps in one.

The seamless integration evident in NW Scheduler / Publisher is simply amazing. We haven’t even fully implemented all of the functions of the app yet in my congregation, but already it has made our individual and collective responsibilities so much easier.

Thank you, so much, for all of your hard work on behalf of Jehovah’s people. This is clearly a labour of love on your part.

It does everything you would want and more

NW Scheduler / NW Publisher is the best tool made for congregations to report and track field service, schedule meetings, field service, public talks, duties, and tracking territory. It does everything you would want and more. I would recommend it for all congregations.

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.
