Bulk export capabilities for workflow details in Blueworks Live

As of now, it is possible to access the history of all workflow tasks on a process, attachments, etc., but only by opening them one by one in Blueworks Live. For compliance reasons, it is often required provide such details on a large number of workflows. Having a bulk export capabilities for workflow details will compliment product's capabilities and improve its compliance related functionality.

    BWL has an approval workflow that identifies the version of the process that has been approved, date, time, and who approved it, and has the ability to store any type of attachments as evidence of obtaining approvals outside of BWL. Currently, we are able to retrieve each approval workflow by searching for the process. Is there a way to search for all approvals in bulk, like an export of the approval in an excel file similar to how we currently export spaces or process details? The ability to search by process is great and all the information is there, however, whenever we receive requests from audit to provide a listing of processes and the proof of who signed off, when, and what, these requests come in bulk. It will be great to have the ability to pull all this information in bulk. See a couple of screenshots attached.

    Thank you.
