Welcome to MyService

MyService is an app for Jehovah's Witnesses that helps organizing field service information.

  • Record time in field ministry.
  • Record the number of magazines, books, and brochures placed.
  • Record return visits and Bible studies.
  • Keep track of placed publications.
  • Manage your territories.
  • Generate various reports.
  • Record credit time, such as RBC, part-time Bethel work, and schools.

Both the desktop and Android versions of the app have been updated. Here are the main changes:

In both apps, the Brochures/tracts field is split into two separate fields, and the Videos field is added for those serving in sign language congregations. This is reflected in the reports, too.

Also, in the Android app, the Ministry Details window has received a face lift. It now looks nicer and should be more intuitive to use.

Additionally, in the desktop app, the offline help is replaced with an online help and the help button is added to several windows.

As always, I am open to your suggestions and comments!

I have released a new version for the Android app that introduces two significant features.

There are now two new buttons on the calendar window, as shown on the right. The one on the top opens a search window. Yes, you can finally search your data! In particular, you can search for phrases in calls, persons' data, territories, and publications.

The other button opens a list of calls. It is similar to the call list displayed for individual persons, but this one shows all calls, not just the ones that belong to a specific person. It also allows you to create, edit, and delete calls right there.

Another minor feature is that now calls to inactive persons are no longer displayed. You can still see them but then you have to enable the Display inactive persons option in settings.

I hope you like the new features!

I have finally transferred documentation of the desktop version to this website. You can enjoy it here.

My plan is to remove the HTML help that comes together with the application and forward the user to this website. In this way, the user will always see the latest and most fresh documentation.

Similar online documentation for the Android app is next on my to do list.

Not big changes in this release. The persons list can now be sorted alphabetically and by recent calls. This may help you keep on track with your return calls and magazine route.

And another thing - the Serbian translation is added. Thank you brother Darko Stantic!

Recently, I had a chance to converse with two special pioneers who have actively been using the Android app. They really like the app, but they also suggested some minor improvements. Two of those suggestions have now made their way into the release.

Firstly, you can now disable the rounding down of ministry timer. Until this release, if you had, for instance, 1 hour and 34 minutes in ministry, the timer rounded the time down to 1 hour and 30 minutes (5 minute increment). For special pioneers, this feature can actually result in about 1 hour lost in the monthly report. So, now this is an optional feature.

Secondly, they asked if it was possible to modify MyService so that the number of return visits is automatically increased if a call is added directly to a person. Now it is!

Additionally, the Latvian translation is now added to MyService, which is my native language. Hopefully, this will be a beginning of many translations for the Android app, just like it is now with the desktop version.

And last but not least, I think I have fixed several bugs in code that caused random crashes on certain devices.
