The Export feature in the Contacts App allows you to export the contacts and take a backup of all your contact data into a spreadsheet (in CSV format), in just a few simple steps.

There are two export options available using which the data can be exported:

  • Current Fields - The fields here present the current view alone will be exported.
  • All Fields - This exports all the fields of the Contacts App.
