  • The green success bar at the top informs you that the export was successful, however, you will not see it on the list because it takes a few seconds to run. Click on the Home Page and then go back to the "Export/Archive Course" on the "Packages and Utilities" to refresh and you should see your ExportFile listed with the current date created.
