Our normal monthly cycle for exporting data... how to automate, when we need bulk exports?

Hi all –

Every month, we will download different form data exports for each of 8
reporting groups of mobile users… So this data can be sent out to those 8
teams.

I would like to automate that as much as possible, so that I am not
repetitively going through the download steps.

I believe that the feature that I want is the “daily saved export.”

However, my problem is that I only see the functionality for the daily
saved export to be within a single export that I have defined. BUT, the
exports that we use are never single exports, they are always bulk exports,
showing the data from nine different forms in one excel sheet.

What is the best automation that I can do to help me in my process of,
every month, generating bulk forms exports for these 8 separate groups of
mobile users?

Thanks!

Hello – I am just pinging my question above. Is it possible to do
automated bulk exports, so that I don’t manually have to go through and do
8 of them each month by hand? For example, something similar to “daily
saved reports” but that can do the bulk exports, not just a single export?

Hi Eric,

Unfortunately, we do not currently support automated bulk exports, only
individual ones.

If this is a feature you’d like to see in the future, I would recommend you
submit it to our uservoice site. There, users can vote on ideas that they
would like to see implemented.

To submit a Uservoice request, go to http://dimagi.uservoice.com. If it is
your first time on the site, you must register for an account. There you
can search for your idea, and if it hasn’t been suggested you can submit
it. You can also vote for other features you’d like to see.

Thanks,
Robin
