The Dataform CSV view is designed mainly for CSV export/import purposes. The view allows you to predefine the set of Dataform fields to export/import, the desired field content by pattern (e.g. human readable dates, entry author info etc.), the export column order, the import column headings and the target export type (csv, xls, ods).

You can define different export/import templates (different instances of the csv view) for the same activity and via the view access permissions allow different role/user access to  designated export/import views.
