  • For the Reports built on MDA objects: You can export the report to excel based on the Tenant configured report read limit, can vary between 1000 and 5000 (max.)

Export as CSV

  • Export to CSV option in a report exports up to 100K  records only.
  • Email servers typically have an attachment file size limit (Gmail 25 MB, Outlook 20 MB) because of which the capabilities of Export to CSV is also limited.
