For investigations, you can export the details of a single transaction from the Monitoring, Transactions, and Item transactions tasks.

Before you begin

  • In the Video options section of the Options task in Security Desk, configure your video settings.
  • In the Transaction Finder section of the Options task in Security Desk, select a folder to export your data.
  • Select the fields to include.

What you should know

  • The following files are created during the export:
    • One CSV file that contains the transaction data.
    • One RTF file that contains the same transaction data.
    • A PNG image from each attached camera.
    • A video file from the attached cameras.
  • If video is unavailable, only the CSV and RTF files are exported.
  • If you choose to export video in the G64x format, only one video file is created. The file contains the video from all linked cameras.
  • Usernames, camera names, and timestamps are not written to video snapshots, even when the Write camera name and timestamp and Write user name video options are selected.


  1. Open a Security Desk task that displays transactions. Your choices include:
    • the event pane in the Monitoring task
    • the Transactions report
    • the Item transactions report
  2. Double-click a transaction to open it in a video tile, and then select the tile.
  3. In the dashboard, review the transaction details, click Export ().
    NOTE: In the Monitoring task, the button is disabled until the transaction being viewed is complete.

    The transaction details and video are exported to the designated folder.
