Extracting Article Data

You can extract current article data from AudienceView, save it and then re-upload it into the application. The extracted information can be used in association with the Dataloader to assist clients who do not want to have to re-input or set up their systems again (e.g. if the system is upgraded to a newer version or if information has accidentially been deleted). The Data Extractor is a new JavaScript template that exports its information in an XML format.

  4. Select the check box next to each article that you want to extract.
