Logo Configuring ExportTools

To configure this plugin, click on the little gear icon on top right, after launching the plugin.

Export Path

When this plugin is launched for the first time, it will default to put the exported file in the same directory as the first path of the library you are trying to export. To use a custom directory, do the following:

Deselect the setting for "Auto Select Export path to match the section exported"

Create a directory, and name it something like "Export"

On Windows, it could be something like: C:\Export

On Linux (QNAP example shown), it could be something like /share/MD0_DATA/Export

Make sure, that the account that runs your Plex Media Server, has full rights to that directory

Then when launching the ExportTools plugin, enter the path from above.

During an export, a directory below the export path will be created named ExportTools and in there you'll find the exported csv or xlsx files following a naming standard of:

Name of Section-TimeStamp.csv or Name of Section-TimeStamp.xlsx

Note: If the above fails, then check out the Community Tips & Tricks

Wrap Lines

Since some fields can be very long, you have the option to wrap the lines, meaning that after "Max line length", the field will continue on a new line

Separator

Here you can change the default separator, if exporting to a CSV file

Default Sort Title to Title, if empty

If the Sort Title is not set, then export it as the title, instead of N/A

Default Original Title to Title, if empty

If the Original Title is not set, then export it as the title, instead of N/A

Movie export level

You can select between 7 different export levels, namely "Level 1" up to "Level 666" The differences between those levels, is the amount of data extracted for your movie sections, so try them out To see the difference, see here

TV export level

Audio export level

Photo export level

Playlist export level

Perform 'file present/accessibility' check.

If this is selected, then the fields named "Accessible" and "Exists" will be populated with either one or zero on the following conditions:

  • Movie level 3 or above
  • TV-Show level 4 or above
  • Audio level 5 or above

Accessible means the file can be read.

Exists means the file exists (Depending on permissions the two things may be different)

Timeout when requesting info from PMS in sec.

This is the amount of time ExportTools will wait for PMS to respond before it will timeout.
