File > Export option removed from MLS

Postby mcg30916 » Sun Jul 26, 2015 11:18 am

On Friday I went to do an MLS export on found the option missing in MLS. There is no facility to do this in so my question is two fold...
1. Was the removal of the export option in MLS intentional or an update oversight?
2. If not an oversight, will facility in be provided to do custom reports and exports to Excel or text files?

I was able to work around the issue for now by creating a custom report in MLS with the info I need and then saving to file, but since that format is different from the export and not all the fields in the export are available in the Custom Report menu, i am now faced with rebuilding a very complex spreadsheet that we used for analyzing boundary splits.

Any guidance here is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

It was quite deliberate. See No more MLS exports.

You may still be able to Export Households from the Directory on, but that export contains far less information than MLS or LCR.
