+# Overview
+The Export User Data plugin for Movable Type allows administrators to export all of the information collected about their site's users into a comma-separated format (.csv) file.
+# Prerequisities
+* Movable Type 4.x.
+# Installation
+To install this plugin follow the instructions found here:
+# Configuration
+Visit the Export User Data plugin's Settings screen at the system level. There are three configuration options you can interact with.
+**Export Directory** is an absolute path to the location to write the exported data to. This location must be writable by Movable Type. This location does *not* need to be web-accessible -- and in fact should not be! Exporting your user's data can contain personal information such as their email address, which you don't want to accidentally release to the public!
+**Export Filename** is self-explanatory.
+When enabled, **Display Export Results** will load your export data into an HTML textarea to present to you. This is a great way to see your data without downloading, but a large dataset can take a long time to load. Regardless of this option, a file is always written to your specified directory and filename, and a "download" link is always available.
+# Usage
+System administrators will find an "Export user data" Page Action on the system-level Users screen. Click this to get started!
+On the **Filter** screen you can home-in on the users you want, then click the Select Fields button to continue:
+* Select the user's status. "Enabled" and "disabled" are clear options. "Pending" users are those who have registered with Movable Type, but who have not confirmed their registration.
+* Select the user's role. This list allows multiple selections, and is most useful for specifically accessing your users, who likely have either the Commenter or Contributor role. Alternatively, by selecting Author, Editor, and Moderator you can generate a list of your site's administrative team, for example.
+* Select the blog(s) to export from. If your Movable Type install runs multiple domains, being able to export user data for specific blogs is important.
+On the **Fields** screen you will find a table of author profile fields, including any custom fields that may be defined. Place checkmarks next to the fields that you want to include in your export data. Click and drag fields to re-arrange their order. Note that the User ID field will always be exported, and can not be reordered. Click the Export button to continue; depending upon the size of the dataset, this may take a few moments.
+Lastly, on the **Export** screen you're presented with the result! The file name, location, and size are reported here, as is a link to download the data. If you've enabled the Display Export Results option, you also see your exported data here.
+The resulting comma-separated file can be imported and analyzed with Numbers or Excel or other spreadsheet application!
