Exporting Data out of Minsilo

Exporting data in Minsilo allows you to download a JSON copy of everything you've created in the app.

How do I export the data for my workspace?#

Exporting data is simple. Here's what you need to do.

  1. Navigate to your workspace and login as the user who created the workspace.

  2. Click your avatar icon in the top right corner of the page.

  3. Click on the button that says "Admin & Billing".

  4. Navigate to the "Advanced" tab.

  5. Click on "Download an archive of your data". At this point, you should see a download begin in the background with the file that you requested. This is your exported data.

Who can request an export?#

Only users that have the role of "Super Administrators" can download a copy of the data that's stored in Minsilo. Currently, this role is assigned only to the user that created the workspace initially. That user may request additional members of their team to be assigned that role by contacting us.

What's included in an export?#

Exports are currently generated in a JSON format and can be read by most modern computers (JSON is just a text file). For security reasons, we limit some data from exports. Most exports include:

  • Contextual data you've created in Minsilo
    • Goals
    • Strategies
    • Purpose items
  • Contribution data
  • Teams
  • Users (not including sensitive login data)
  • Tags
  • Alignment Annotations

You may request a full export of your workspace, including sensitive data, by manually requesting this data from our team. We will perform an enhanced verification process to make sure the requesting party has the authority to receive all data stored for the company in Minsilo.

Why export data?#

Here are some common reasons to export data from Minsilo:

  • Your team is no longer using Minsilo, but would like to retain the data that you've created in it.
  • You need to migrate data to a compatible system.
  • You want to periodically download your data for archival purposes.
