Once you’ve created and published your first forms, it’s time to think how to retrieve entry data from ActiveForms. The easiest and most convenient way is to export them to a CSV file. Today, we present a short how-to on configuring that mechanism.

Having selected the columns, click the Selectbutton, and confirm by clicking Save. The CSV export configuration has been saved.
Now, whenever you want to retrieve data from this form, just filter for it and select (Download all) or (Download selected).
