Sometimes it can be beneficial to check and/or edit your data in Excel.

In order to do so, follow the steps below:

  1. Go to "Data management" > "Data source"
  2. Find the data source you would like to do an export from click on it. Once you have the data source open, click on "Export" in the top right corner 
  3. Choose what time period to export, and the file will be downloaded to your computer
