What is a CSV Export?

This article covers CSV exports from the CSV page on the ShipV2 server

CSV Exports allow customers to get vital information like tracking, back from their imported files.

CSV exporting allows you to select an import, edit the columns you need to be exported by adding and/or removing headers.

Additionally, you may change the DesktopShipper field mappings to the headers in the exported file.

  2. Navigate to the "Import History" tab.
  3. On the row for the CSV import you wish to export, click the button to start the export.
  4. Once DesktopShipper has completed the export, click the icon for the CSV import row to reveal a list of exported files. If export files were already generated, the latest export will be at the top of the list.  
  5. Click the download button to save the exported CSV file to your "Downloads" folder.
