Export submitted data in frontend to csv

This feature is part of the Visforms Subscription and not available in the free Visforms version.. It was added to the Visforms Subscription 3.4.0.

This feature allows you to display an "Export to CSV" button in the frontend data views according to the following rules:

  • The form configuration settings of the data export (form configuration tab "Advanced") determine which fields are included on the export, whether there is a header in the export document and which overhead fields are included.
  • Which record sets are included is determined by the concrete record set selection of the frontend data view. It depends on the current users permissions as well as the currecnt selection made by search filters or, if the data view is created using the content plugin data view, the plugin parameters, but recordset selection due to pagination is ignored.
  • Wheter or not a user will see the "Export to CSV" Button, depends on three factors. Only if all three factors are met, the button is displayed and export is possible. Does the user have permission to export data in frontend (ACL setting). Is the form option "Display CSV export Button" activated in the form configuration tab "Display data in frontend". Is there at least one record set available in the current frontend data view.

In order to set up this feature properly and secure we have added a new Visforms ACL Rule "Export Form Data in Frontend (CSV)".
