MyBSF, Notes and Lectures
How do I access MyBSF from the BSF app?
When you tap the “MyBSF” tab on the app, your browser should open automatically allowing you to access your MyBSF account. Use MyBSF just as you normally would.
Can I download materials from MyBSF?
Yes, you will be able to download materials from MyBSF.org just as you would accessing MyBSF.org from a browser.
Do I still need internet connection if I access MyBSF from the app?
Are answers automatically synced between my devices?
The app currently doesn’t support syncing between devices, but you can copy your answers from one device to another using the Answer Transfer Tool. Find it at Settings > Advanced > Answer Transfer Tool.
Can I print my answers from the app?
You can print both answers and lesson questions from the app. Simply navigate to the top right of your screen and click the printer icon.
Can I move my CBSF answers to the BSF app?
Yes you can, and we have created a tutorial just for CBSF users to help with the transition. Visit it here.
Can I change the Bible translation and language?
Our in-app Bible utilizes the NIV translation, which all BSF materials are based on. However, you can change the translation and language of the Bible as desired by going to Settings > Bible Viewer > In-App Bible. If you would like additional options, visit Settings > Bible Viewer > Website Bible.
Want to request a specific translation be added to a future version of the app? Submit feedback here by clicking here.
What do the settings under "Only change these settings if instructed by support" do?
Note: We strongly recommend that you should only change these settings or use these options if instructed by support. However, if you do choose to use them, here is a description of what they do.
MyBSF Viewer: Web Browser/Allow Downloads (Default)
This allows MyBSF to function the same way it does in a web browser. This is the default setting.
MyBSF Viewer: Web View/View Only
This allows you to view or listen to lectures and view notes or other PDF files. Note this will make all download links in MyBSF not fuction on Android devices.
This is an experimental function and you should see no visible changes in the app. The default is “Native”
Remove Downloaded Files
The BSF app stores your lessons and in-app Bibles in a “Downloaded Cache.” By removing these files, the app will automatically re-download them from our BSF support service.
Check for Question Updates
Occasionally BSF publishes updates to lessons and translations. For example, some lesson languages are not complete until closer to the time when the lesson is used in class. The BSF app checks for lesson updates daily automatically, but choosing this option will manually check for updates.
Answer Transfer Tool
Export all your lesson answers in the Answer Transfer Format to make a backup or move answers to another BSF app.
You can also import previously exported answers from the Answer Transfer Tool. This will overwrite answers on this BSF app.
