Export CSV

Export CSV is a gh-element that allows users to export data from the program in a CSV file. This is the button that, when clicked, will open a pop-up window with export options.

Using the export element

There, the user can customize which items and fields they want to export. After that, a CSV file with all the matched items will be downloaded to your local storage.

In the generated file, the items are in rows and the fields are in columns.

Data Selecting

This pop-up contains the main settings of exporting. Here the user can define what data he wants to export. The following set of settings is available for this purpose:

Also, there are two buttons that allows to work with the current element:

  • Cancel - close the pop-up window.
  • Download - download the generated CSV file after selecting items.

Select Value Type

The first function allows user to set the type of field values, namely whether the field value will be interpreted or not. Consequently, there are two varieties:

  • Interpreted
  • Raw

Selecting the type of values to export

Select Items

The second function configures which items will be exported. User can export all application items or only selected ones:

  • Selected
  • All

Selecting items for export

Select items before clicking on the Export CSV button to use the Selected mode. The file will not download without pre-selecting the elements.

This function allows you to add an extra column to the resulting file. That column contains self links of every exported item. It consists of the application ID and the item ID, separated by a dot.

Add column with item references

In other words, if this option is enabled, a new column with references to each item will be created in the generated CSV file.

Select Fields

The last setting allows the user to choose which fields from the selected items will be added to the file. This prevents users from adding unnecessary columns to their files and prevents columns from being created from elements that don't store field values, such as Table, Add Items, etc.

Application allows to select the source application


To export data, you first need to specify the location where the data will be received. The current option is used to select the source application.

The application selected here must be the one whose items will be exported.

This is because you need to select items before exporting them. Accordingly, if the items of a particular application are selected, the same application should be attached to the Export CSV.
