Using Explore Data

About Explore Data

The Explore Data feature in Church Analytics gives you the ability to see the raw data behind the Church Analytics reports. You can use it to see the individuals, families and organizations that are donors in your organization. You can export this data in a CSV format or Create an Audience to send to Insights for further learning and outreach capabilities.

Not all organizations and users have access to see individual giving data in Explore Data. If you have questions reach out to your Champion Success Manager or Generis Consultant.
