A major feature of SmartSimple list views is that list view results can be easily exported to Microsoft Excel. Once your list view has been created, take the following steps to enable exporting to Excel:

  1. Go to the list view configuration page.
  2. Click into the list view for which you wish to enable exporting.
  3. Click on the "Export" tab.
  4. Select the ExportListView enableexport.PNG option.
  5. Click the "Save" button.

  • The Export button will now be enabled for your list view.

  • You can also tell the system where you want the results of the list view export to be positioned in the resultant Excel spreadsheet. Visit this page for instructions.
  • Additionally, you can upload an Excel spreadsheet to be used as a template for list view result exports. Visit this page for instructions.
  • SmartSimple uses special rules for exporting values stored in currency formats to Excel. Visit this page for detailed information.


  • Buttons displayed on the list view, such as Quick Edit buttons and Web Page Views, will not be exported. A blank column in the Excel file will result for columns containing only buttons.
  • In the Basic Search panel, when searching on a custom field, an additional column is added to the list view showing the values for that custom field. This additional column will not be exported to the Excel spreadsheet, an additional list view export can be configured for that.
