The export feature allows users to retrieve data from the Resources module in CSV (spreadsheet) format.

How to Export Resources

To export resources, click the green Excel icon on the right side of the screen, under the Change Module menu.

Note: If your Resources module has a lot of records, you may need to wait for the file to be prepared.

A dialogue box will appear asking where you want to save the file, which will be named resources_export_today's_date.csv. Choose a folder and click Save.

You can then open the file on your computer using Excel, OpenOffice, Google Sheets, or another spreadsheet program.
