    YES YES YES A THOUSAND TIMES YES!  I would love to be able to export data and run my own reports.  Your reporting is frankly not very good / flexible. But with 'export to csv' I could create exactly what I want in a Pivot table in excel and I would never ask for another reporting 'feature'.  Export to csv would provide EVERYTHING I would need for reporting.

    It does exist, you can download a zip file with multiple CSVs, which are basically like database tables in structure, with inter-linked IDs. Not all the data is there, but it's useful.

    HOW. After running a report, I have the options to print, open in pdf or export to Excel. The Excel defaults to xlsx format - if I save it as a csv, it doesn't recognize the format and reverts to Excel format with all the headers and etc, which slow me down immensely. Once in Excel, if I then save it as csv, it strips the formatting but still has the totals and column headers etc. Where/how can I save as zip file.

    What I am talking about is downloading the raw data, rather than prepared reports. You get there by going to Settings -> System -> Export Data. There are some fields / connections missing, but it's a good start - a lot can be extracted from the CSVs in this zip file. 

    If standard reports could be added to that zip file in easy-to-use fashion, that would be even better.

    I see this was requested several years ago and not address. CSV export function is standard on most systems and would also make my life much easier. I am aware of the full database export function but would really also benefit from a report .csv (or at least non-formated excel) report export function.

    I agree, this would be a useful feature - not entire db export with normalized tables, not report export, just raw time entries. Thank you.
