Exporting Documents

NetGovern Search lets you export the contents of an entire audit, as well as specific search tabs and selected messages within an audit. You can export data in the following formats: PDF, Portable NetGovern Search, and PST.

  • PDF: Exports to Adobe Portable Document Format which can be viewed with the free Adobe Acrobat Reader.
  • Portable NetGovern Search: Exports items to a lighter version of NetGovern Search. Note that the interface may display as Netmail Search.
  • PST files: Exports items to Microsoft Portable Storage Table format. Note that if a PST file exceeds 20 GB, a new PST file will be created.
Portable NetGovern Search is only available when exporting the results of a Message Search.
To view exported content in PDF format, you must have a PDF reader installed on your computer. If any attachments cannot be rendered, a list of those attachments is included in the PDF file.

The files created by exporting messages are stored in the same location in which the Audit Management information is stored. Therefore, the more exports you perform, the more data will be stored in that location. However, you can delete exported files to free up space.

There are several steps involved with exporting:

You can skip items that have certain tags.
