Often users will want to keep their data after a project ends just to have it for later access.
Sometimes they need it to report to government bodies that request information.

There are three steps to exporting your project data:

Export of models - 2 ways

  1. There is an export button for models. Here you can download the latest revisions for every model in one export. This is the easiest way to use if you only need the latest revision of the models.

  2. Enter a model and click on the download button for every revision. This is the easiest way to use if you want to download all the revisions of all the models.

Export of issues - 3 Ways

  1. BCF - Open standard that can be used by other programs. This option can be hard to use for those that are not used to the file format. Here you do not have a proof of downloaded date but each file contains information about when the issue was made. With this format you are guaranteed get the most information possible.

  2. Excel - I do not recommend the Excel export since it exports the least amount of information

  3. PDF - This export option can be good to use if you want an export option that is easily readable and accessible for most people. Here you also get the download date of the set of documents which can be important for reporting to authorities. BCF still has the most information and is the best to use if you want to open the issues up again in the future.

Export of documents:

Lastly we have a download documents button.
I recommend to download smaller amounts of documents at a time since it can take longer for large file sizes. Breaking up the downloads reduces the chance for anything going wrong in the download process.
