In this example, we will be going in-depth on exporting field values. This tutorial assumes the user already has at least one Custom Field setup. If you are experiencing trouble, please visit Basic Installation Tutorial which walks you through installing Custom Fields and creating your first product field.
Click on the Export menu button under products. This will bring the user to the Export Product Fields page where you can export Custom Fields and also other metafields. There are 4 drop-down menu's here.
Tip: Custom Fields can export and values created in the Other metafields section. These fields when re-imported can be viewed in the Other Metafields drop-down in Configure Fields.
Inside Export Filters you can filter fields to export by Title, Vendor, Type, Collection, and the last time it was updated.
Inside Required Export Columns you can view the Columns that will be in the Exported file by default.
Include Additional Columns holds the ID, Body, Vendor, Type, Tags, and Publish Date.

Once opened, you will notice how the bulk export feature in Custom Fields looks very similar to the one provided by Shopify. However, Shopify cannot export Custom Fields with their bulk export feature, but our's can. Note the Column names. Your values appear in columns that match the "namespace" of your field. The namespace is based on the "machine names" you gave your fields when you created them. See also Theme Snippets, Namespaces and Developer Information About Each Field.
Shopify product information can be found under the Handle column, the Title column, and the ID column. IDs are handy when re-importing the same file as they speed up the imports.
