How to Export Contacts from Mautic

Exporting contacts from Mautic can be done in a couple different ways. Either from segments directly or by using a report. The segment method is pretty straight forward, reports requires just a few steps.

Exporting from Mautic Segments

Simply go to segments on the left of your Mautic admin. Click on the segment you want to export. Then from the top right, click the down-arrow and select Export.

Easy as pie.

Exporting Contacts from Mautic via Reports

The first time I needed to get data out of Mautic, it was done by accessing the MySQL database directly, because I couldn’t figure out how to do it in the application. Now I know the reporting feature is the way to go if I’m only after certain data.

Here’s the steps that will keep you from bashing your head into the wall:

1. Click on Reports on the left side of the Mautic admin.

2. Create and name a new report.

3. Select Contacts Segment Membership for the ‘Data Source.’

4) Click the Data tab and choose the columns you want to export. Simply click them on the left and they’ll appear on the right. You can then drag and drop to order.

5) Click Apply and then Save and Close (or just the latter, whatever).

6) BOOYAH! There’s your data. Now to export your contacts from Mautic simply click the menu arrow on the top right of the report screen, and select the output you want.

Not too bad, right?

Why We Moved from Mautic

We’ve been Mautic users for at least two years now. There are a lot things we love about this Open Source InfusionSoft (as I describe it). But for us, there were too many hiccups.

  1. The upgrade function in Mautic is buggy. At least half of the time we tried to apply updates, it didn’t work. This means going to the server command line to get it done.
  2. No easy way (at this time) to specify the time of day emails are delivered. This is a BIG DEAL.
  3. You have to mess with cron jobs on the server to keep Mautic running.
  4. The email creation piece is lacking in all kinds of ways.
  5. Sometimes updates do bad things, like cause your forms to hang.
  6. We aren’t server experts, to there’s a huge vulnerability to hosting this yourself.

The Mautic Replacement We Moved To

I’m grateful for the time Mautic has given us, but we decided to move to a WordPress driven CRM called Follow Hook™. Follow Hook is designed to meet a big need out there for a flexible WordPress CRM designed for small businesses and network marketing professionals. It allows for custom fields, groups and campaigns. It also integrates with MailChimp and Project Broadcast. It’s all-in-one solution that ties in WordPress, texting and email campaigns in a beautiful way.
