Transferring data from one place to another

I am from a call with a partner and the partner would like to know if on CHT it is possible to move data from one place to another.

  1. A user belonging to District A was mistakenly created in District B. The partner would like to move the user and the data he has collected to District A.

cht-conf might be useful here with the move-contacts capability.

Run cht move-contacts --help to get usage instructions

If they are offline users, we recommend clearing their data (on their device) after the move and syncing afresh.

A post was split to a new topic: Writing purge rules

They are offline users,RRTs, cant see the data from one RRT, the one with the wrong hierarchy, which I have now corrected.
Clearing the data before syncing to server means I lose the data collected, which is crucial to the study

I should have been more clear @oyierphil. You should sync user data before doing the move. Otherwise, you run the risk of losing data.

This thread was initially addressing moving data from one place to another. We can move your new message to its own thread so that others in the community can easily follow the conversation.
