To begin using the Web App, you need to create at least one club year that includes the dates your clubs will be meeting. 

For existing AWdb customers using the Legacy Database, we can migrate your data to the Cloud Database. When you are ready to begin a new club year, follow the instructions in the Add/Setup a New Club Year How-to Guide. [Note: although all of your data is migrated, the Web App does not currently have all of the functionality of the Legacy Database's app, so some data will be hidden. In the meantime, we have ported most of the functionality to the Cloud Database's Windows App, which accesses the same database as the Web App and provides familiar access to ledger, reporting and grid capabilities.]

For new customers, or those who don't care to migrate existing data, follow the instructions in the Setup a Brand New Database How-to Guide. You may also use the Windows App to access features not yet available using the Web App.

Once your club year has been created, we recommend working your way through the remaining Getting Started articles to learn the basics of using the Web App. There are also training videos available, starting with the General Info video, which will give you an overview. Also, if you need help with the Windows App, you can refer to the Legacy Database's Online Help, since it is very similar.


If you have questions beyond what's explained in this knowledge base, contact the Approved Workman support team as described on our website: Also, the Approved Workman Forum is a great place to ask and answer questions, report bugs, suggest future enhancements, and share ideas that will help improve efficiency in keeping Awana Club records. With your participation, the forum can be a valuable resource to everyone in our Approved Workman user community.

For Q&A, Enhancement Requests, and Defects related to the Web App, use the Community Contributions - Cloud section of the forum.

For issues related to the Windows App, remember that it functions very similarly to the Legacy Database application, so you may find helpful information in the sections related to the Legacy.  There are some differences, so if you have specific questions, enhancement requests or defects related to the Cloud Database's Windows App, you can post those in the Cloud sections.
