There is no better way to both organize a congregation and remain within theocratic direction!

NW Scheduler has become the only way to operate a congregation. We’ve been using NWS for 4 years. One of the most important things to recognise is the adherence to organizational direction and structure. The data complies with our direction in our sfl (elder book). I’ve been sending feature suggestions for years and it is so reassuring to see the suggestions either put to use or merged in with other and better suggestions.
Other than feature suggestions, the updates are frequent and well done.
The learning curve is well worth the time and effort. Whatever you are using now, make the switch. There is more than enough support, both officially from the NWS team and the user groups online.
There is no better way to both organize a congregation and remain within theocratic direction!

everything you want from your scheduling software

The New World Scheduler and the accompanying New World Publisher apps do everything you want from your scheduling software. In fact, it probably does even more than you can think of. Also, the developer is actively adding features based on user input which is great to see.

The New World Scheduler program is easy enough to use for even our most tech-challenged brothers. The New World Publisher app is easy enough that almost every single publisher in our congregation uses it to manage their time, check the schedules, and view documents on the virtual information board.

It is an excellent service.

the Help and Support section of the website provides everything that even the most IT illiterate brother can follow

Dear Brothers:
We absolutely love this program and wish to thank you brothers for what must be an immense amount of work to develop and maintain the software. It has made life so much easier for the small body of elders in our congregation, and saves us a lot of time.

We have promoted use of NW Scheduler with other bodies of elders nearby and we only ever hear positive comments.

The program is very easy to use and the Help and Support section of the website provides everything that even the most IT illiterate brother can follow.

Thank you all very much.

We are THOROUGHLY happy with NWS and NWP!

NW Scheduler and NW Publisher are WONDERFUL tools to assist in keeping us connected to the congregation. We started using the JW Scheduler just before the pandemic and it was very useful designed to be a digital information board. It allowed the brothers to send important information to us as well as allowing the publisher to submit field service reports via the phone app Fantastic! The turn around time for submitting trouble tickets when necessary is a relief, quick and easy. We are THOROUGHLY happy with NWS and NWP!

Keep up the good work!!!

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.
