Exporting Information from BetterCloud



Information available in grids across BetterCloud can now be exported into several local and online formats. This is a convenient way to audit or report on particular subsets of data from across your organization, or prepare inputs for custom data-crunching tasks outside of BetterCloud. 

How To Export

When selecting entities in any of our grids, a corresponding BetterCloud "Export" action will now be available in the "Actions" dropdown menu: 

Filters can be added to your grid, to allow you to scope or narrow the entities you can choose from. Entities can be chosen manually, by page, or by all pages: 

After choosing from available entities in the grid and selecting the corresponding "Export" action from the "Actions" dropdown menu, a right side flyout tab will appear. You will be offered the choice of exporting to either a .csv format file or Google Sheet, and once you have made your selection, will be able to take this action: 

If you selected a .csv file format, a link will be delivered to you via email, where you can download this file: 

If you selected a Google Sheet format, a link to the sheet will be delivered to you via email. The sheet will be located in a top level folder titled "BetterCloud Exports", in your Google Drive account: 

As with all actions taken in BetterCloud, a record of your export action will be available in the Audit Logs section of the app: 

Important / Requirements

  • When selecting all pages from any grid, the only action available for this selection will be the corresponding "Export" action.
  • It may take 5-10 minutes for the notification email containing your export to be delivered to your inbox.
  • If you choose to export to a .csv file, this file will be available to download from BetterCloud for 48 hours. 
  • Depending on the size of your export, certain applications may set visibility limits on your spreadsheet's contents: Apple Numbers limits spreadsheets to 65,000 rows, and Google Sheets limits spreadsheets to 2 million cells.
