Exporting Project Expenses

You can export project expenses to a .CSV file and later import the file into a third-party software for reporting and analysis. All expense data and recurrence settings are included in the exported data. For a recurring expense, a separate row is added in the exported file for each occurrence of the expense.

To export expenses to a .CSV file:

  1. Select a Cost Tracker project.

  2. Click the Expenses tab in the upper-right corner.

    The project expenses are visualized by category and displayed in a table.

  3. Click the Export to CSV button. This will export the expenses data to a .CSV file and will send the file to your computer.

  4. Open the .CSV file. Exported files are titled as follows:

    'Expenses for <project name>_<exported date>.csv'

    For example, Expenses for Lunar Lab app_2022-07-19.csv
