Exporting People & Givings

  1. Login. From the gear icon (top right) select "Export"
  2. This take you to the Export Membership Data screen, select "Click to Export"

                a) Please note: This may take a while
                b) Export will give you files containing Giving, Individuals, Interactions
                c) Interactions are a log of "follow-ups" and are not typically imported.

Exporting Groups

  2. Active/Archive Groups > Check "Include Active Groups"
  3. Select Groups you are interested in transferring (checkbox next to each)
  4. Select "Gear Icon > Export"

Exporting Attendance

Within SimpleChurch, navigate to "Attendance > Reports > "By Session"

  1. Selecting one session at a time

                a) From the gear dropdown, select "Filter"
                b) Specify desired date range > "Submit"
                c) From the gear dropdown, select "Export"

3. Files contain Members and Visitors that have been added to your database at time of export.

Simple Church allows "Visitors" to be added at check-in without being part of the database. Therefore, names and attendance numbers for "visitors" not added to your database are not represented in the export files. We don't typically import these statistics.
