Exports overview

 

There are a number of ways that you can export data from your account into spreadsheets. This allows you to perform various tasks on your data, outside of your platform, for analysis and record-keeping purposes. Exports, also referred to as 'reports', are available as an Excel spreadsheet or CSV file and they contain data as collected by users of your program and about your program configuration. 

To download an export:

 
  1. Choose the location where you want to export data from
  2. Filter the results, if required, to export only the information you want
  3. Click the Export button located underneath the search box (generally in the top-right of the screen)
  4. Roll your mouse over an Export option and select either the Excel or CSV link (Excel is most popular)
  5. Once done, an email with a link to the file will be sent to you when the export is ready. It can take a few minutes depending on the size of your export and how busy the queue services are

Practical example - try this in your account:

 
  1. Go to Entries > Manage entries
  2. Open the Advanced search filter and select Submitted under Status 
    • Note: This is optional, you don't have to filter for anything or you can choose other criteria such as a chapter, category, tag and more
  3. When happy with your list, click on the Export button, roll your mouse over Entries and then click on Excel
  4. At this point, you will see a message on-screen letting you know your export is being created and you will receive an email when it's ready for download 
  5. Check your inbox and click the download link in the email to download the Excel file to your computer

Custom exports & filters

You may want only a selection of data in your exports instead of everything the export offers. You can achieve this by creating custom exports. As well as this, you might want just a subsection of results instead of everything the view provides, such as only 'submitted entries' or 'moderation approved entries', applying filters can help narrow down the results that will apply to your export. For more information, see: How to search and filter.
