Run Document Export
1. After installing the Document Export bookmarklet, open a library homepage or a view where you have reader permissions.
2. Press Document Export in your bookmark bar.
3. In the Document Export pop-up, select the scope of the export.
You can export the values of properties for all documents defined in:
- all views in the library — if your library has views with different custom properties, only the properties common to all views can be exported
- a specific view
– If you run Document Export from a library homepage, the scope of the export is set to All documents in this library by default.
– If you run Document Export from a view, the scope of the export is set to all documents in the current view by default.
4. Select the format of the export: CSV file or spreadsheet.
5. Press Next.
6. Select the properties to export and press Execute.
Depending on the export format you requested, a CSV file is downloaded or a Google spreadsheet is created and opened in your My Drive.
The exported properties are listed in a table where the columns are the name of the properties, and the documents are listed in the rows.
– The bookmarklet can export the properties of no more than 1000 documents at a time. If there are more than 1000 documents, the properties from the 1001st to the 2000th are written in a new Google spreadsheet or CSV file.
– When the export is complete, you can return to the first panel to change the settings and run another export.
