Microsoft Lists has received a new update which brings support for exporting data as CSV files. The company has announced via Microsoft 365 Admin Center that the Export to CSV feature is now generally available in all environments.

The new capability will allow users to export their list items to CSV files. With this update, the software giant has made some important changes to its Lists app on Windows PCs. The Export to Excel button has been replaced with the new Export dropdown menu, which provides options to export data to Excel Workbooks or CSV files. However, Mac users will only see the Export to CSV option.

It is worth noting that the Export to CSV option is only supported inside Lists, and it doesn’t work with document libraries. “Unfortunately, when the feature was rolled out, the changes were visible in both document libraries and lists, and we are working to correct this issue by late May, and only show the new CSV option inside lists,” the company explained.

Microsoft Lists is a popular business tool that helps users track and organize information. It is available as a standalone app and integrates with Microsoft Outlook, SharePoint, and Teams. In case you missed it, Microsoft announced last month that the Lists app is now optimized for iPads, and it supports InTune APP configuration.
