Downloading to a specific file location

Hi everyone, I am trying to add an automated excel export feature to my app. The functionality is working, but I want the excel file to download to a specific location rather than just to my downloads folder. Is there a way to do this?   Thanks, Jon

Hi Jon,

You cannot influence this within the Mendix application, this depends on the browser behavior. You could configure this for your own browser in the browser settings (which will not affect other users), or you could look into storing the Excel export in a FTP or other remote location.

Hope this helps!
