Exporting work items in the web client

You can export data from work items to a comma-separated values (CSV) file. You can also save data from work items to an HTML table that you can print.

About this task

Note: In the web client, query results display the IDs and summaries for linked work items. However, when you export data from a work item query to a CSV file, only the IDs of linked work items, such as child, blocking, or related work items, are exported. The summaries are not exported to the CSV file.

Procedure

  1. Run a query or do a search to select the work items that you want to export or print.
    Note: If the result set is large, not all work items are displayed in the results grid. However, all work items are included in the results from the print or export operations that are described in step 2.
  2. In the results grid, click the View Full Result Set in Printable Format icon View Full Result Set in Printable Format icon to view the query results in an HTML table, or click the Download as Spreadsheet icon Download as Spreadsheet icon to export the results to a comma-separated values (CSV) file. You can view, save, or print the HTML table. You can import a CSV file into a spreadsheet or personal database.
    The columns that are specified on the Query editor Column Display page are used in the report.
