On Demand - if On Demand is selected, you will have the option to save the export to be used again later. The Export Name is a required and will be used to save the export in the Optimized Event Exports grid. The Description is optional and will be added to the Optimized Event Exports grid if the admin chooses to enter one.

All others - all other options will require you to provide additional information. An Export Name is required and will be used to save the export in the Optimized Event Exports grid. The Description is optional and will be added to the Optimized Event Exports grid. The From and To dates will be used to set dates used for the export. The start date is a required field, but the end date is not required. If no end date is selected, the export will continue to be generated until the export is deleted or an end date is entered. The file retrieval option(s) will be presented. If your site has been configured to utilize SFTP, an option will be available to select it.

Click Next to save and move on.

Configure Data

Filter data based on when users submitted the form. This option is unchecked by default. When the option is checked (enabled) a From date box and a To date box are displayed allowing you to enter the dates to filter the submissions. The admin is required to enter either the From date or the To date. If a From date is not entered it will pull data since the first submission. If a To date is not entered it will include data through the last submission.

NOTE: If you put in a date range, the export will contain rows within that date range as well as any associated debits or credits that apply to the rows in the export. For example, if you entered the date range of 11/16 - 11/18, you would get the data from within that range plus the adjustment that took place on 2/8 since it is connected to a registration that took place during the timeframe (see Omar Morgan's rows below).

Click Next to save and move on.

Notification Email

The Notification Email step allows you to configure the email that is sent with the scheduled export. This step is not shown if the admin selects to run an On-Demand export or if the admin selects to have the export saved to the Secure FTP. The email notification step allows you to add recipients to receive the email and to set the name that will appear on the From line. These will default to the email address and name of the admin creating the export. The From Email will not be configurable and will be set to support@imodules.com. The subject will default to "Site Name - Scheduled Export Export Name is ready", but can be changed. The message will also have default text.

Click Next to save and move on.

Finish

If running the export On Demand, you will have the following options:

If you scheduled the export, the Finish page provides details about the created export: Export Name, Export Description, the export schedule (if applicable), how the email will be retrieved, and a button to return to reporting.
