This article pertains to site managers of Get Connected, Corporate Connect, Campus Connect, and Community Connect sites.

Your site manager panel provides many opportunities to export data to a spreadsheet. In fact, the data within most of the tables in your site manager panel can be exported. This article is a quick guide to where you can find the exports most commonly used by our site managers. They're grouped into the following categories:

A Note about the User Filter

The user filter is an excellent resource for exporting user data, whether for agency/program managers or volunteers. This article provides a number of filter options to generating data. When using the user filter, it's important to understand the following steps to access it:

  1. From your site manager panel, go to Volunteerism > Users.
  2. Click User Filter to open the user filter.
  3. Run a filter for the data you wish to export. (See following sections for guidance.)
  4. From the Select an Action dropdown, select Export Users.
  5. Click Export Current User List.
  6. Enter the email address where you would like the export sent and click Email Export.
