Exporting your VFB Pro data (forms, entries, and settings) is sometimes necessary and useful. If you are moving to a new host or just want a backup of your site data, then Exporting your data is the answer. Once the Export file is created, that file can be used for import by the VFB Pro Import screen. You can also Export your data in a CSV format for use in spreadsheet applications.




Forms Export

By default, the Forms radio option is selected.  This will let you export a single form at a time into JSON format and it includes all fields and settings for that form.

  1. Use the Select a Form box below the radio option
  2. Click the Download Export File button so the export file can be created and saved to your computer.


Entries Export

The Entries export option will create either a .csv, .txt, or .xls file and cannot be used with the Import. This is most useful when you want tabulated data for use in a spreadsheet application.


Use the Select a Form box below the radio option. If any entries are available for that form, the Fields box will reload with a list of available fields. You can then use the Date Range boxes to select a Start and End date to narrow the number of entries down.  Leave the Date Range boxes blank if you wish to export all entries for that form.

  1. Use the Select a Form box below the radio option.
  2. If any entries are available for that form, the Fields box will reload with a list of available fields.
  3. Choose your desired Format (csv, txt, or xls)
  4. The Start and End date boxes will narrow the number of entries down to your selected Date Range. Leave these boxes blank if you wish to export all entries for that form.
  5. Select the Fields you wish to be displayed in your spreadsheet.
  6. Click the Download Export File button so the export file can be created and saved to your computer.
