When a local government uses CityGrows, the data that's been gathered through its workflows belongs to that government. Our goal is for you to be able to export the information you need from your workflows any time.

Currently, there are 3 types of exports available within CityGrows;

  • Process (Dashboard) Export
  • Directory (People and Businesses Export)
  • Financial Transaction Export

Process (Dashboard) Data Exports

To export from your Dashboard, first search/ sort to find the data you'd like to export, using the search tool and/ or the controls in the left dashboard pane. Once you've got the right number and type of processes on your dashboard, select Export from the Actions menu at upper right. 

 If the export has lots of data in it, it may take a moment to process, so we'll email you when it's ready. And as soon as it's available, it'll appear on the Exports tab on your Dashboard menu.  This export will include all the process data from the selected workflows, and it'll be a .csv.  We anticipate increasing your ability to customize what's included in this export soon.

Directory Exports (People and Businesses)

In addition to the data gathered by your workflows, there's also data stored in CityGrows on the people and/or businesses who have submitted at least one process on a Team. That data is available in the Directory tab at the top of the Dashboard. Once you're there you can select People or Organizations and specify the Team for which you'd like to create the export (there's a dropdown where you can switch Teams next to the Export link) and then export the results. This export will also appear in the Exports tab when complete.

Transaction (Financial) Data Exports

Under the Teams section (accessed via the top right of your Dashboard, via the person icon.), once you select a Team of which you're a member, you'll have access to the Transaction Data related to the workflows in that Team. You can select a set of transaction by date, and then export them in .csv format.

Please let us know if there additional types of exports you'd like to see!
