Exporting Assets List To a Spreadsheet¶
The Content Dashboard can export a spreadsheet (
.xls file) of content related metadata for further analysis.
To export the asset list to a spreadsheet follow these steps:
Click on the Global Menu and, under the Content area, click Content Dashboard.
If the Global Menu is disabled, open the Site Menu and go to Content → Content Dashboard.
Click on Export XLS to download the asset list.
While generating the file, the Export XLS button will show a loading state along with a button to cancel the export process. If you click on the Cancel Export the exporting process stops and shows a message: XLS generation was cancelled.
When the export process is done, the Export XLS button shows the message XLS Generated.
Navigating away from the page while the
.xls file is being generated will stop the export process. The system prompts the user before leaving the page.
XLS File Content¶
All metadata is exported from contents and documents, so the
.xls file will contain the following columns:
Site or Asset Library
Languages Translated Into
The available metadata present in the
.xls file differs between content types. For example, an image will not display anything in the “Languages Translated Into” cell, as an image cannot be translated.
