Data Migration from SimpleChurch to Elvanto

At Tithely we strive to make data migration as painless as possible. The instructions below will guide you through how to export People, Notes, Groups, Giving and Attendance information out of your current SimpleChurch account to be imported into Elvanto.

How to Export People, Notes, Groups, and Giving from SimpleChurch

  1. Login to your SimpleChurch account.

  2. Click the gear icon at the top right and select ‘Export’.

  3. This will take you to the Export Membership Data screen, select “Click to Export”.

    Please Note: This may take a while. This export will give you files containing Giving, Individuals, and Interactions. Interactions are a log of “follow-ups”, these will not import.


How to Export Attendance from SimpleChurch

  1. In your SimpleChurch account, go to “Reports” > “Attendance”.

  2. Select the “Individual Attendance” tab.

  3. Select an appropriate date range by clicking the date button.

  4. Click the ‘Groups Attended’ button and select a group that you would like to export attendance.

  5. Click the Download icon.
    Your browser will download the attendance report into a CSV file.

    Update the attendance download file name so it is easily identifiable.

    Example: If you have just exported Sunday School attendance, update the file name to say Sunday School. This will make importing much easier.

  6. Repeat steps for each group you would like to download attendance for.


Please Note: 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. These are not imported into Elvanto.
