3. In the Document Export pop-up, select the scope of the export. You can export the values of properties for all documents defined in:

  • all views in the library - if your library has views with different custom properties, only the properties common to all views can be exported
  • a specific view 

Notes:
- If you run Document Export from a library homepage, the scope of the export is set to All documents in this library by default.
- If you run Document Export from a view, the scope of the export is set to all documents in the current view by default.

4. Select the format of the export: CSV file or spreadsheet.

5. Press Next.

6. Select the properties to export and press Execute.

Depending on the export format you requested, a CSV file is downloaded or a Google Sheet is created and opened in your My Drive. 

The exported properties are listed in a table where the columns are the name of the properties, and the documents are listed in the rows.

Notes:
- The bookmarklet can export the properties of no more than 1000 documents at a time. If there are more than 1000 documents, the properties from the 1001st to the 2000th are written in a new Google Sheet or CSV file.
- Once the export is over, you can return to the first panel to change the settings and run another export.
