It is one of our goals here at Tithe.ly to make data migration as painless as possible. follow the directions below on how to export information out of your current Roll Call account.

Exporting People

Within Roll Call, navigate to "File" > "Export People"

  1. Criteria Tab

              a) Export Type: Custom
              b) Run for: Everyone
              c) Check "Include Deceased"

2. Column Tab
              a) Select the fields to import
              b) Include "Person No" (used to tie contributions to person)
              c) Return by: Individual

              e) Check "Include Headers"

Exporting Groups

Navigate to Groups → Reports

For this, you'll need to export one file per group, as Roll Call doesn't appear to have an option for telling you what groups a person belongs to.
For each group you wish to export, do the following:

  1. Select the group
  2. Criteria Tab - can leave as is
  3. Column Tab - you only need first name and last name
  4. Output Tab - "Comma Separated (CSV)"
  5. Click "Generate"
  6. Save the file with a name that allows you to remember what group this is - the name of the group or close enough to.
  7. After the file has saved, to make it importable, open the file in Excel, add a column with the name of the group as the header, and mark everyone as "Y"
