- Here, select the options including the type of file to be downloaded.
- Download CSV with meta key and value: Select this option if you want to export all the custom fields/values / data of events.
- Download CSV with custom fields: Select this option if you want to export only limited custom fields / values / data of events.
How To Export Events Data From FRONTEND?
The organizers can export the event data from the frontend dashboard of the website.

- There is a link of “Download Events CSV File“ on the top section of the webpage.
- Clicking on that link will show you two options:
- Download CSV Default: Select this option if you want to export all the custom fields/values / data of events.

Advanced: Overriding/Customizing the templates
For overriding or customization, template files can be found in the wp-event-manager-export/templates/ directory.
To override a template file,
- Create directory “wp-event-manager-export” under your theme folder
- Copy the template file to “/wp-content/yourtheme/wp-event-manager-export/” directory.
- Your theme will use all the template files from the “/wp-content/yourtheme/wp-event-manager-export/” directory instead of the plugin’s template file (/wp-content/plugins/wp-event-manager-export/).
- event-export.php template file lists the user’s export.
Remember: If you have overridden template file and plugin frequently updating then you need to sync template file with new updates from the plugin’s template file for better functionality and new features.
