A connected church or organization makes changes in data and sends the changes to other DataShare sites. DataShare allows you to send information and changes on the Profile tab in View/Edit Individual to other sites, based on a saved search or by member status, pledges, and gifts. You must send your data changes, additions, and deletions to DataShare in order for other sites to receive them.

The first time you send data, all records that match your selected criteria are sent to the other sites. After this, updated records are sent, along with deleted records, so that those records are also deleted at the other site. You may change the filter settings of your criteria if you like.
