Once the results load, you will see an option to results filter the data based on several different components like Filter by Date, Filter by User ID, Filter by name, Filter by Business, Filter by Categories, and a button to export the data as a CSV file to be imported to a variety of spreadsheet software including Excel and Google Sheets.

If you want to analyze results only from a certain business, simply enter the business and leave the other fields blank. You can also filter by more than one parameter as well. Once you enter your filters, be sure to click the Filter button to re-analyze.

You can use the export feature with or without the filters. By using the filter, you can export data in a certain time frame, by a certain user, by a certain name, by a certain business, or for a particular category.

If your results are in a language that supports accented characters, you may notice some odd things in your export if you open the Excel file. Please read our Getting Excel to properly show accented characters documentation for fixing this issue.
