    Exporting Monday.com Data to a CSV File

    Using the Dedicated Export App

    You can use an app specifically designed for exporting data from Monday.com to CSV. This app allows you to select which columns you wish to export. Additionally, it provides the flexibility to export either the entire board or just a portion of it. It also supports exporting to XSLX format if needed. This app is convenient for exporting data from individual boards to a CSV file.

    Connecting with Google Sheets

    Another method involves the "Monday CSV Converter for Google Sheets" app. This app generates a URL that can be used to import current data from a Monday.com board into a Google Sheet. The data at the URL is automatically refreshed every hour, ensuring you have access to the latest information from your board.

    The "Smart Spreadsheet for Monday" app provides users with the ability to import a board into a spreadsheet, make any necessary modifications, and then export the data back into an xlsx file.
