What you'll see in the exported file

The data in the exported file will look differently depending on the mode you selected in the export pop-up:

  • Export in People mode: The data in the Type column is grouped by users. For each user, the total effort is calculated separately for each project and is then grouped and tallied on a separate line called User total. Additionally, there may be a separate line in the group for non-project tasks.

  • Export in Projects mode: The data in the Type column is grouped by projects. In each project, the total effort is calculated separately for each user or job role (Placeholder) assigned to tasks in that project. Then, it's grouped and tallied up on a separate line called Project total.

In both modes, total effort for unassigned tasks is calculated and displayed at the end of the table.


  • Both task and booked effort can only be exported in hours.

  • The exported data is limited to 10,000 tasks.

  • Backlog Box data is not exported.
