  • Tutor LMS (Version 2.0.0 or later) for migration from LearnPress
  • Tutor LMS (Version 2.0.0 or later) for migrating from LearnDash

    And the following plugins for their respective migrations

  • For LearnPress (Version 4.0 or later)

  • For LearnDash ( Version 4.0 or later)

You need the mentioned versions or later of the plugin for the migration to work properly.
