WTS New Internet Arrangement

    First of all my apologies. In an earlier thread last week I posted that the WTS has a new website to accept literature orders. This is incorrect, I need to clarify.

    The WTS is changing the dates it is accepting literature orders. The old dates varied depending on where the congregations were located. WTS prefers to have literature orders faxed to them at 845-744-9000 (U.S. Branch).

    The WTS has a new internet site for accepting congregation records. The Congregation Secretary will use CIS (Congregation Internet Site) to submit congregation field service reports. One account will be setup per congregation, with four user IDs per account. If the PO has internet access he will be the Account Administrator, the Secretary will have an ID, and two elders will have IDs for backup. The IDs will follow this format, FirstNameLastInitial...Theodore Jaracz = TheodoreJ; Samuel Herd = SamuelH. The password is determined by the user.

    My thoughts are the WTS is trying to streamline and continue to cut costs. Mailing hardcopy reports to WTS doesn't make sense. The WTS has to print special envelopes and forms, they need people to handle received mail/paper. The WTS is doing more electronically...congregation donations are submitted via phone, congregation reports are submitted online; it won't be long before literature orders are taken online as well.

    I'm trying to get my hands on these BOE letters, but it is difficult. The PO doesn't want to release these letters, but this is first-hand information.

    I can think of a couple of board members who are going to have a field day with that fax number. LOL

    yes multiple faxing with a 100 page blank message - great fun

    Or the flying fickle finger of fate; a loop of about three pages of a photcopy of an extended middle finger (or image of the sender's choice). If sent after hours it will deplete a box of fax paper.

    this seems like a good idea, roblem is the WTS has being telling us for years not to use computers to keep records. maybe its new light.
