Batch Export Submission Data and Files

To access the Batch Export  feature, open the Gear menu located on the right hand side of the gray label bar, at the top of your submission list.

Prior to running an export, you can use Search Filters to select a group of submissions for export.

You can choose individual submissions for export by checking the check box on the left hand side of the screen for one or more submissions.

When exporting, make the following selections:

  • Submitters (profile contact information for each submitter)
  • Submissions

  • Current Filters
  • Selected Submissions
  • All Submissions

  • Submission Data (.csv file containing data collected on the submission form)
  • Submission Files (.Zip sent via email)

When exporting Submission Files you will be sent an email with a link to download a Zip file. This process could take some time, depending on the number and size of the files. The Zip file will contain a Table of Contents .csv file and a subfolder for each submission. Each submission subfolder will contain a submission summary .rtf file along with submission files.

Downloading Submission Files can put some stress on the servers so we currently have a limitation on this feature ( 4 times per month). Please be mindful of your usage.

Along these lines, a Submittable user created a Python wrapper for the Submittable API (Thanks!) which is also great for backups and exporting your data. You can download it at
