There are different ways to export your data. You can export:

  1. The visualizations (graphs) from your views (with some exceptions) to .PNG and .SVG or PDF

How to Export Data as .XLS

If you need to export any data to Excel, you can do this from the home screen. Click the 'three dots' menu on the workspace that you would like to download, and select 'Export'. This will export an Excel file (.xls) with all your workspace data.

Alternatively, you can also export to Excel from the 'Sidebar Menu'.

This exports all the workspace components and their fields in an Excel format.

⚠️ Remember that all connected references are not included.

⚠️ Please note that, If there is no data for a field column, then that particular field column will not get exported.

How to Download a Visualization as .PNG or .SVG

Most of the views in Ardoq that provide you with visualizations, also known as graphs, let you export the canvas to .PNG or .SVG formats.

Simply hover the gear icon in the top-right of the view and click 'Export':

Note: In the case you want to present your data to your team or organization, we recommend using the Presentation Mode.

How to Download a Visualization as .PDF

In any view, you can press “Ctrl + P” to download your visualization as a .PDF. Most graphs are best displayed in the 'Landscape' layout and 'Legal' as paper size.

How to Export Data Using Reports

  1. Create a new report by selecting "Create new > Report" from the Home page.
