Export CSV

Export CSV is a gh-element that allows users to export data from the application in CSV format. This is the button that, when clicked, will open a pop-up window. This window contains various settings for selecting the data to be exported.

Functional Characteristics

Use this element when you need to get data from some application. All information will be saved in the SCV, which will be downloaded to your device.

Data Selecting

This pop-up contains the main settings of data that will be exported. That means here you can configure which fields and items will be in the resulting CSV file.

Pop-up window of export CSV element

Select Value Type

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

  • Interpreted
  • Raw

Select Items

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

  • Selected
  • All

Select items before clicking on the Export CSV button to use the Selected mode. Without a preselection of items, the file will not load.

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.

Select Fields

With the Add Field button, the user can select which fields of the selected items will be loaded in the CSV file.

Value Format

There are no field values.

Element Options

The export CSV does not have many field settings, and they are divided into two groups.

Field Settings

As all other elements, this one has standard field settings.
