Here at StudyBlue, we recognize one of the beautiful things about our community is the momentum that can gather around the vocalization of a single idea. This time around, the community suggested the ability to export flashcards. We are pleased to announce that we have delivered, with the release of our new export feature, a more flexible way for you to manage your flashcards.
Using the export feature is incredibly simple. To use, click on a flashcard deck you have created and stored inside your Backpack. Along the right hand side of the screen, you will see a number of different ‘Actions’ available to choose from. Second from the bottom is ‘Export’. Selecting it will download your flashcard information into a 2-column .CSV Excel spreadsheet. One column will list ‘Terms’ with ‘Definitions’ listed in the adjacent column. Images do not currently transfer and there may be some difficulties with certain foreign language characters but we will strive to make improvements in whatever way we can.
The exporting feature is especially handy when partnered with the import feature. For example, let’s say you went on a flashcard-making spree and found yourself with a large deck in need of splitting. You could export the deck and easily select cards in bulk to delete entirely or separate onto new spreadsheets. These spreadsheets could then be used to create new flashcard decks better suited to fit into your methods of studying when imported back into StudyBlue (I mean, where else would they be imported?).
As always, we welcome any feedback and encourage you to reach out with any questions or ideas you may have for future updates. Check out our community forum to create and/or contribute to discussions with fellow users and members of the StudyBlue team.
You may first turn to StudyBlue needing to study—but by working together, you’ll come back wanting to study.
