You may occasionally want to export large sets of data from the Vocera database to a CSV file.
Exporting data is useful when you want to examine all your data or make global changes that would be time consuming to make in the Administration Console.
For example, suppose changes to the phone system caused your organization to reassign desk extensions for all users. You can export the existing user data to a CSV file, make the changes to desk extensions, and then use the Update feature to replace the existing user data with the data in your CSV file.
Exporting data does not remove it from the database. See Emptying the Vocera Database.
To export Vocera data:
Click Open to view the file. You can open a CSV file in Microsoft Excel, a text editor, and many other applications.
Click Save to browse to a location and enter a file name for the file.
The data you export is in CSV format, appropriate for importing again.
