Export subscription information

In the Visual Studio Subscriptions Administration Portal, you can export a list of your subscribers and details about their assignments. This information includes their name, email address, alternate email address, subscription level, assigned date, activation status, expiration date, reference field, whether downloads are enabled, country, language, subscription status, and subscription GUID. The list is exported as a CSV file which can easily be opened in Microsoft Excel for the creation of charts, pivots and other artifacts.

Having all your subscriber information in one place can help you do things like:

  • Get an overall view of which subscriptions are in use by team and/or location across your organization.
  • Develop plans and budgets for future subscription purchases.
  • Encourage users who have subscriptions assigned to activate.
  • Take proactive action before subscriptions expire.
  • Identify where subscriptions may be over-allocated.
  • Assign subscriptions using the subscription ID to control which expiration date your subscribers have on their subscriptions.
