Custom exports

 

In Award Force you can create custom exports that allow you to choose exactly which columns to include in the exported file. For example, you can add specific fields from the entry form or remove fields you don't need. Custom exports can be configured throughout Award Force in all areas where standard exports are available.

Note: exports containing more than 10,000 rows will be broken into separate downloads. For example, if you export 25,000 entries, you will receive three download links.

Creating a custom export

There are two ways that you can create a custom export: from an export drop-down itself or via the settings menu. Both methods are outlined below.

From an export drop-down

  1. Go to your desired page, like Judging > Leaderboard
    Tip: if you are exporting from the leaderboard and you have multiple score sets, select the one you want from the Score set dropdown field from the top of the page
  2. Open the Export drop-down at the top right of your screen
  3. Click New under the 'Custom' heading
  4. Give your custom export a name in the Export name field
    Tip: keep it short but informative based on its use.
  5. In the Areas drop-down, choose the appropriate type of base export you would like to begin with
    Note: the area selected dictates from where the custom export will be available and the type of core data it includes. For example, the 'Scores + comments' can only be generated from the leaderboard.
  6. Under Availability, choose whether this export is Private (available only to you) or Shared (available to all program managers)
  7. Add or remove columns from the report as needed following the directions below
  8. Save

Next time you click the Export button you'll see your saved custom export as an option.
