If your church previously used Shepherd’s Staff®, you can use a feature in Church360°® Members to import your Shepherd’s Staff database. This import process can take up to two hours to complete if another user is using the importer.
Depending on the version of your Shepherd's Staff, you may need to prepare the database before starting the import process.
This importer converts almost all data in the Shepherd’s Staff database and enters it in your Church360° Members account. The list of everything that can be imported can be found here. The list includes person and household information, offerings, events, and attendance.
Before you import the Shepherd’s Staff database, you will need to know where to locate the database. In most cases, the database will be found at C:\ShepherdsStaff, and the database is usually named Staff8.MDB. If you are unsure of your database name or location, finding it is simple if Shepherd’s Staff is still installed. Open Shepherd’s Staff and click “Switch” on the sign-in screen. This will bring up a window that will show the current database and the database location in the upper left corner.
To import a Shepherd’s Staff database into Church360º Members:
- From the People view, click the ”Upload” button in the upper right corner, and select “Shepherd’s Staff database”.
- Click “Upload”.
- Navigate to the location of the database, select it, and click “Open”. The database will then be uploaded and imported.
