Which fields you want to export, the order of fields and the order of your time entries can be configured in settings. There are 2 order types for your exported time entries, by project and by date

The files that are exported to Dropbox server will be saved in "Timesheeter" folder. If you export data for only one project the filename will be "YOUR_PROJECT_NAME_timestamp", for instance: "Project1_2011010110000", if you export data for more than one project file name will be "Projects_timestamp", for instance: "Projects_2011010110000".

- in Excel click on "import"
