    The comments and/or images I would like to send in support of this suggestion are not for public consumption as they would have networking, client, hardware and software information pertinent to FNTS clients. Since this request is visible to the public, please end (close) this request.

    As previously mentioned, the System Configuration panel allows you to select data from it, ctrl-c (copy), then paste it any place of your choice including a spreadsheet. If that way of getting the information you need is acceptable, but the system data you need is not currently there, please list the specific items you would like to see added.

    The ability to Export and Import the configuration between users is provided from the main product GUI using File->Export Configuration and File->Import Configuration. There are also equivalent command line options. See section 9.1 More command-line Options in the GettingStarted document.

    You may also bring up the System Configuration panel, select all rows and columns, ctrl-c (copy), then paste them any place of your choice.

    If those options are not sufficient, please provide additional detailed requirements and business justification.
