Anyone using JW Scheduler software?

Recommended Posts

You can adjust the Format a little bit.


Go to C:\Users\jgmol\AppData\Local\JW Scheduler\MyTemplates where jgmol will be your username.


There you will find the folders:




You will see that the folders are empty.


Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\JW Scheduler\Templates to see the Templates that JWScheduler is using.


Copy/Paste one of the Templates to your personal folder. Open it and try to adjust it. They say you have to try to keep it as close to the way it is as possible. You can rearrange the position for instance, but removing an entire line/row wil mess everything up. But in the lower part of the page there is more possible. Simply try and see what happens. Rename the Template similar to the original name. Standard2 or something like that. Then copy the new Template to the system folder. If you now try to print you will see the Template shows up. Print it as a document and open it and make some minor changes. Store it as a pdf if you like and mail it.


This is how our template looks like (in Dutch)

Which one of these reports are you interested in?

The Public Talk schedule.  Right now ours looks like this, which I really like (names scribbled over for privacy issues):

Something like this? Template Alternate Blue. If you save the Template in your personal folder, you can change the colour. Name it Alternate Brown and save it in the SystemFolder again. It shows up in the list of Templates. It may need some adjustments. You can download the Program and try it for yourself. If it fits your needs you can talk to the Elders.

You probably need to enable using less secure apps.

I can only go on what has been written to the rest of us. And I know that nobody would knowingly violate direction. Most brothers do not understand the technology like I do. Most brothers do not know to ask the questions I do. I do online storage for a living. I am not telling others not to use it. I am choosing not for the reasons that confidential information is stored online. If they tell us we can stored encrypted data online then I will be good with it.



By this line of reasoning no one should use WhatsApp because they store your confidential information online, including your contacts. So if you have an JWs in your contact list, you are storing their confidential info online. The same applies to using Google or Apple to store your contacts, or using an online backup service for your device. This would mean we would never share a publisher's contact info by any means other than the jw.org inbox - no SMS, no WhatsApp, no Telegram, etc. Voice calls are not even safe because that data is stored online as well. That data can of course be encrypted, but as you said the direction doesn't differentiate between encrypted data and unencrypted data.


Taking the concept of "online storage" even further, the data you send from your computer is technically stored online while in transit. Such "storage" is for mere milliseconds, but as you pointed out the instruction doesn't make a distinction about the length of time it's being stored. It's probably best to stop using the internet or our phones to transmit any confidential info.


My comments are of course absurd, but hopefully it makes the point that we all need to be balanced in our use of technology, and none of us want to filter out the flea and gulp down the camel.


Our congregation switched away from KHS due to the complete lack of tech support, the repeated crashes, the terrible UI/UX, and the massive hassle involved with trying to keep all of the brothers in sync with the data. We have been using JWS and we love it. It's by no means perfect, but it is such a breath of fresh air when compared to KHS.

Personal contact information is not even relevant to this topic.


I am talking of congregation information that is not generally available to others such as field service reports and emergency contacts and so forth. Phone numbers and addresses are public for the most part anyway otherwise we wouldn't be able to do telephone witnessing or letting writing. I have had zero problems with KHS and keeping it in sync with other brothers. You just have to know how to use it.


And I don't use WhatsApp either because its owned by Facebook who I will never trust. 


When I send confidential information I use jwpub which the organization has specifically said is acceptable.

Our congregation is just testing JWS, so far, so good. 


lot of work was done recently, fixing tons of bugs.  It seems most brothers gave up on Public Speaker Sharing.  We didn't.  Hours and hours of troubleshooting and 2 months later, we helped JWS support enough to get it fully working.  Just make sure everyone in your congregation who uses the PC version is on 1147 or greater.  (tu)
