JSON V CSV data reports

I tried exporting data from Cliniko and it exported as a JSON file. I’ve never heard of this file format before. There are no other save options for the report, and I feel like this is a useless feature.

The ability to save data in CSV formats would be really helpful, as organisations such as Medicare and NDIS produce reports in CSV files.

What are your thoughts on the JSON files? Useful, not useful? Is this a common file format in your part of the world?

Which data specifically are you seeing being exported as a JSON file? All of the exports under “Settings → Data exports” will generate a CSV file. The only exports that come to mind which would generate a JSON file are for treatment note templates and patient form templates. Those exports specifically weren’t designed with reporting in mind, but rather to allow a template to be shared and imported into another Cliniko account.
