Message Summary

So you are aware: We have recently rolled out the capability to export Microsoft Lists to CSV files to all environments.

When this will happen

This feature rolled out during the second half of April, 2021 and is now fully available in all environments. We apologize for not announcing this feature in advance.

How this will affect your organization

On Windows machines, the Export to Excel button has been changed to say Export, with two options underneath;

  • Excel Workbooks, which is the previously-existing export feature
  • CSV, which is new

On Macs, only the Export to CSV option is available.

This feature is only supported inside Lists, and not inside Document Libraries.

Note: Unfortunately, when the feature was rolled out, the changes were visible in both document libraries and lists and we are working to correct this issue by late May, and only show the new CSV option inside lists.

What you need to do to prepare

You might want to notify your users about this new capability and update your training and documentation as appropriate.
