Export selected records from entity list

In portals, is there a way to enable multi-row selection, and then export these records to an excel file?

 

I currently have an entity list with over 200 records, and would only like to export a handful of records to excel file. With the OOB download option, all my records are exported.

Hi @TheIntern ,

 

I think you already knows this method to export Entity List to Excel.

 

There is no out of the box feature for downloading selected record from entity list. If you want to make this feature, you should develop a whole page through HTML, CSS, Javascript and binding the dataset through Liquid

 

Action Item

==========

1. Create a Entity list

2. Develop a HTML page with CSS, Javascript

3. Binding the Entity list records through Liquid: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/powerapps/maker/portals/liquid/render-entity-list-current-page

4. Add a feature to download only selected items as Excel file

Hope this helps.

 

Best regards,

Hi JisungHan, do you have any more information (links, documentation, etc...) on how to do step 4, "Add a feature to download as Excel file"? Or perhaps do you know what the name of the workflow is that does this exporting?
