Click on Export as CSV and then select what you want to have exported in the CSV file.

You can customize your CSV export by selecting or deselecting the following categories:

The exported project will look something like this:

You can use this file to import your task information to other tools that support a CSV import. 

      Note: Tasks have a status (Completed, Open, Archived etc.) and this is shown in the CSV export with an individual number for each status:

  • 1 - open
  • 2 - completed
  • 18 - archived task

Exporting Tracked Time 

To export your internally tracked time, follow the same steps as outlined above, selecting the option "Export Time Tracking" instead of the regular CSV export. 

You can find more information about time tracking in MeisterTask in this article

More export options are available in the Statistics & Reports area.
