How do I transfer my data to the cloud version of Genesis or the Food Processor?

If you have an existing installation of Genesis or the Food Processor, and have moved to the cloud version, you can transfer all of your existing user created items to the new system.

To do so:

  1. Export all of your existing data within the application. Navigate to the Database Tab and select Export All.  This can take a while with a lot of user data. (It will automatically detect the size and split from 1-24 files)
    Note: For ease of importing, the use of your Desktop or Documents folders for the export is not advisable. The easiest location for exporting would be a new folder in the C drive. Create a C:\export or C:\temp folder to export into.
  2. Log into your ESHA Cloud account and launch your application (either Food Processor or Genesis).
  3. Go to the Database ribbon and click on "Import".
  4. Browse to the location (click here for directory instructions) that you saved the exported file(s).
  5. Open the EXL file(s).
  6. Select the appropriate option for how you wish to handle any possible duplicates, and click OK.

If you would like assistance with this process, or if you have any troubles, feel free to contact Support.
