Exported files have extra columns. Why?

Question

I’ve pressed the “Export Visible Columns” button, yet the resulting file contained a few extra columns, aside from the ones I’ve seen on screen.


Answer

  1. This is perfectly normal.
  2. The web interface shows data in the most convenient way possible, and this means that some original columns might be displayed in an easier to work with way.
  3. However, when you press Export, the data is shown in its original form. This means that additional columns might appear in your file.
  4. If you want to add additional columns or remove some of the ones you’ve added yourself, just use the Columns menu.

Hint

This is the Columns menu.
