Boating Suite allows you to export your data either as comma separated value files (.csv), or as individual entries so you that you can view or print the data on a computer.

Exporting to a .csv file will allow you to open your data in a program such Excel. This will allow you to view, sort and print the data in ways that are not provided in our app.

Exporting an individual entry will populate the body of the email in a format that is similar to the view in Boating Suite. Exporting an individual entry allows you to share information with friends and family about a specific trip or you can print the entry to store a hard copy in a paper log book.

Please note, exporting your data is not the same as backing up your data. See the instructions for backing and restoring data here. Please note that exported data cannot be re-imported into the app. We provide exporting as a way to view and manipulate readable versions of your data. Although you can’t re-import the exported data into the app, we do encourage you to export your data on a regular basis and retain a recent copy as a failsafe in case something catastrophic were to happen. In this case you would still have your data in a readable format.
