Export a Report

To export a report, click on the Report tab and navigate to the report that you want to export, and open it. Now click on the Export button to export it in .csv or excel as shown in the below screenshot.

In the below screenshot I’ve used the Sample Flow Report: Screen Flows report, You can see default message marked in the red.

Now you have an option to remove the information that’s normally displayed in the footer when users export a report to an Excel or .csv file. This feature is available in Developer, Performance, Enterprise, Professional, Contact Manager, Group and Unlimited editions except for Database.com.
