In this article we'll review how to import HOBO data from HOBOlink and the HOBOconnect mobile app into Conserv.
💡 If you're importing many files at once, make sure to ask about our multi-file import feature. You can import up to 20 HOBO files at once with just a few button clicks.
Exporting Data from HOBOlink
It's only a few button clicks to export your historical data from eClimateNotebook.
- Login to HOBOlink and navigate to the "Exports" tab in the "Data" tab
- Click on the "Create New Export" button.
- Name your export - It's a good idea to create a meaningful name before you export.
- Choose which data logger you want to export. You can choose all of your data loggers at once.

💡 Make sure to choose the Text CSV format instead of the HOBOware CSV format. It's much simpler to import the Text CSV format to Conserv.
