Watch this video or read the text below to learn how to export data from Herdly.
You can export data from the Animal List window on the computer, either from the main list or from a child list. When exporting from a list, Herdly will export the data just like you see it in the list—each column in the order you see them and each row in their order. This means that you should set up the view and filter for the list before exporting.
To export data, click the Export button for the list you want to export. This will open the Export window.
In the top portion of the window, choose what type of data to export:
In the bottom portion of the window, choose which records to export:
When you are ready, click the Export button. If you chose an option besides Copy to Clipboard, you'll be asked to name the file and where you want to save it. Then the data is exported.
Herdly exports data just like you see it in the list for most columns. Date columns will be exported in the YYYY-MM-DD format so that spreadsheets can recognize the date easier. When importing or pasting into a spreadsheet, you may need to play with the formatting of each column to make it look the way you want. For example, many spreadsheets will try to recognize RFID numbers as actual numbers and show something like 1.24E+14 unless you have it format the column as text.
