Why Export list to excel show all the items?

Occasional Visitor



My question does the feature "Export to excel" export all the items of the list. 

Shouldn't it export only the items that the current user has permission on it ?


I tried it with my test account which chas permission on 6 items, and when I'm using Export to Excel feature, I can see all the list items... :(


Thanks :) !

The 'Export to Excel' will export all the items in the list, irrespective of the view or permission. I hope soon there will be an update to this feature.
export to excel should respect item level permissions. Are you sure the list isn’t setup using security by obscurity by filtering the items you see via view?
