Exporting

Freeform includes 3 options for exporting (2 of which are Pro only):

Quick Export Pro

Freeform Pro's Quick Export feature displays inside the Submissions page of the Freeform control panel. Clicking the Quick Export button at the top of the page allows you to export all submissions for a given form, in your choice of Excel, CSV, JSON, XML or Text. You can then exclude whichever fields you don't want exported.

File Upload fields will export as a complete URL to the file if a public URL is specified for the Asset. If not, it will just export as the file name only (e.g. my-precious.gif).

Lite CSV Export

The Lite version of Freeform includes CSV exporting functionality.

TIP

The Lite edition CSV export is currently limited by pagination. If you have more than 1 page of submission data, selecting the "Select All" checkbox at the top will only select the entire page's results, not results beyond the page currently being viewed. If you have a large number of submissions and need to export them all in a more robust manner, consider switching to the Pro edition for more export options.

To export a selection of your Freeform submissions:

  • Select a Form name from the left sub navigation menu
    • You currently cannot export while in All Submissions view)
  • Select the submissions you wish to export (or click select all checkbox at top).
  • In the settings cog icon button at the top, click it and select Export to CSV.

File Upload fields will export as a complete URL to the file if a public URL is specified for the Asset. If not, it will just export as the file name only (e.g. my-precious.gif).

For more advanced and flexible exporting options, consider upgrading to Freeform Pro.
