How to: export users
With export, you can quickly download a file with users' data from the People tab. Currently, you can download users data with usage and without:
* The file without usage data contains the users' info from the People tab (and more) without the information about topics.
* The file including usage data contains all the info from the People tab plus the detailed info from each user's profile such as completed topics, number of steps seen etc. User data including usage is available in JSON format only at the moment.
The export of users is especially useful if you're importing different data into 3rd party tools. For example, you may import different reports into one dashboard, and want to include Inline Manual there as well. You can import exported data (especially the one with usage) to, for example, data analytics tools (eg. QLik, PowerBI, Tableau) and play with the data visualization. You may also want to analyze and target users based on the usage details or improve the tutorials. With user export, you can get a better picture of your users.
How to export users
- While in the People tab, select users you want to export. You may select specific users or all users matching the filter.
- Click Export users button. The button will be disabled if you don't have any users selected.
- You'll see a modal window where you can select a user content and the output format. User data including usage is available in JSON format only at the moment.
Click the "Export" button to export a file.
The e-mail with an export link will be sent to your e-mail address. The link will be active for 60 minutes. After this time, the file will be deleted and the link will not work anymore. The file can be downloaded by site owners only. The link won’t work for any other user. If you have troubles with unzipping the file, take a look here.
