Ability to export lists and other (user selected) data to Microsoft Excel
I use lists extensively to organize the streams that I monitor and target. I would like to be able to export All of my community (lists members, friends, followers, etc.) to excel so that I could conduct ad hoc analysis (e.g. sort by no. of followers), and add ad hoc columns per tweeter for notes, scores, etc.
Ideally I would be able to create a table where each community member is a row, and default columns would include twitter account follower, friend, listnames (up to 20 per account), number of followers and friends (people they follow), for each member. Any other data from twitter pulled by Hootsuite (e.g. when member`s account was created, frequency of tweets, location, etc.) would be ideal for adding as columns if desired. Each column would be checked where relevant so that, for eg, a person might be a member of more than list, be a follower in one of my twitter accounts, and a friend (I follow) in another as well as be a member of one or more lists in that other account.
Being empowered with this data about my communities from Hootsuite together with Excel`s awesome analytic power would incredibly enhance my efficiency, effectiveness, knowledge and learning.
We’ll consider the benefits of exporting to Excel data files.
Yes, this would be fantastic! Otherwise, users have to pay for yet another social tool with the functionality to export social followers and lists. Please let me know if this feature is still being considered.

I agree with this suggestion. Basically, I need to take one of my lists and share it with a co-worker. I now have to write each one out into Excel.

Hello, you can use the very user-friendly tool http://www.twexlist.com to get followers, followings and any twitter list to an Excel file.
Fully agree, specially if twitter lists can be exported

I fully agree with this suggestion. Even basic exporting capabilities would be helpful.
