I have run into this issue with a few web apps: There is a page that displays some data, and the user needs to have the ability to retrieve a file of the same data (typically as an Excel spreadsheet). I am wondering what an action button that does this should be called.
From what I can tell, the most technically correct wording for this button would be "Export and Download" since the app is converting the data to a new format (export) and then giving it to the user (download). But for UX what is the most user-friendly/well-understood wording for this action?
- Download [noun] as [format]
- Export [noun] as [format]
- Download and Export [noun] as [format]
Noun could be "Data", "Spreadsheet", "List of users", etc. Format could be "spreadsheet", "Excel", "CSV", "XML", etc.
