Setting Up Data Export


This page is designed to help you create an "Export to" interaction for your Avonni Data Table, enabling users to export entire data sets or selected data rows in Excel or CSV file formats. Following the steps outlined in this tutorial, you can implement this powerful feature, enhancing your application's user experience and functionality.

Steps to Create an "Export to" Interaction

1. Create an action on the Data Table

Choose whether to create a row action or an action, depending on your preference and specific use case.

2. Create the interaction from the interaction panel:

  • Go to the Interaction Panel: Look for the interaction options.

  • Choose Target: Select the action you created in Step 1 from the dropdown list.

  • Set Type to 'Export To': This enables the data export feature.

  • Default File Name: Enter a pre-filled name for the exported file, which users can change later. Select "Mapped" from the icon menu for dynamic file naming and choose one of your flow resources. This allows the file name to be generated dynamically based on your selected resource.

  • Optional - Simplify Export: To speed things up, you can hide the export dialog, limiting user choices on file format and encoding.

  • File Format: Pick the formats, like Excel or CSV, available for export.

  • Default Encoding: Choose a standard encoding to ensure the file works well with most software.


Following this straightforward guide, you've added an "Export to" feature to your Avonni Data Table. This enhances usability by enabling users to easily export data for analysis, sharing, or archiving beyond the confines of your application.
