Cronycle boards are a great place to collect and make sense of information. It is also where insights can be extracted, knowledge harvested, and content curated. Over time, we’ve made it easy to export curated content and/or insights from your board. This can be used for several reasons:

  • Extract insights to take them to another application
  • Analyze information in tables to check team productivity and quality
  • Prepare full-length or headlines PDFs to archive (or even read on paper)

Boards have two exporters –

Batch export

This export option, available from the Export button on your board menu, takes in consideration the filters and search you apply on the boards.

You can export different levels of information:

  • Your insights – the summaries, annotations, tags, notes… Learn everything about extracting insights here.
  • Headlines only – the titles, domain it was published, date and link
  • Headlines and abstract – same as Headlines only with the addition of a short extract for each item
  • Full content – everything in Headlines only with the addition of the full text

Tags and summaries are published with all options.

The options available as formats to export to are:

  • CSV – great for analysing content in tables
  • RTF – the best option for insights portability to prepare reports or original content in Microsoft Word or Google Docs. This is only available with Your insights.
  • HTML – to have an offline view of the content (open with any web browser)
  • PDF – great for archiving or printing

For example, if you want to export curated content with the tag “Artificial Intelligence” and which you have approved, and added in the last month, you can apply these three filters, then click on Export. Only the items matching these filters will be exported, corresponding to the number of items in the counter.

The export is happening in the background. You can trigger the export and go do other things on the application (except for another export) while it is processing. You can safely remove the filters on your board. HTML and CSV are fast to export, while PDF takes a little longer due to the nature of the format. In all cases, you get an in-app notification and email to get your file. The file remains accessible for 20 minutes and requires the unique encryption key contained in the email link to open.

Single Insights export

In addition, there is another option to export insights from a single piece of content – both from the content tile and from the Insights view 3 dots icon. This is particularly useful when exporting annotations from several articles grouped into a Story Arc into a single file.

The options available as formats to export here are:

  • CSV – for analysing content in tables
  • RTF – the best option for insights portability to prepare reports or original content in Microsoft Word or Google Docs.

While exporting is useful in several scenarios, Cronycle boards are very powerful for publishing – we have many options available.
