Advanced reports are available on all Arlo service plans, but while they are in BETA (not final), you may not see them in your reports list and will need to contact Arlo support to have them enabled on your platform.
The Contacts List (Advanced) report uses a powerful search and filtering engine, allowing you to generate custom XLSX and CSV exports of contact records that match your conditions. You can control the column outputs of the report, including the column position - and also apply multiple sorting conditions to a single report.
You can set a range of conditions on the report to allow you to export a specific list of contacts and the information held against the contact. This includes:
- Contact details (e.g basic system fields like Name, Phone, email address etc)
- Contact employment details
- Contact address details
- Consent of contacts (e.g set a condition to only include contacts who have provided consent to be included in marketing)
Note: The consent fields in this report will be titled as per the title given on your platform, i.e. they will not necessarily be called Consent. Learn more about consent field.
