The scenario is that of a football club and the editor of the match day programme wants to gather some key facts about the fans to put in the Featured Fan page.

The custom fields had already been created so the need is to report on those fields to gather information about Favourite League Player, Favourite Player of all time, and Favourite place in the ground to view matches.

Step 4

You can either export to csv straight away or go back into Reporting, click on the report name to open it, then export to csv:
