Limits for Exporting Mentions

It’s possible for your organization to export a maximum of 5000 mentions per day.

This limit applies to all Saved Searches in your organization, rather than each individual Saved Search. For example, it is not possible to export 5000 mentions from one Saved Search and 5000 from another in the same day.

In addition, the limit of 5000 mentions per day can be used up across multiple exports. For example, if you export 1000 mentions, you may still export a further 4000 mentions in the same day.


It’s not possible to place a limit on the number of mentions to be included in your export. However, you can view the total number of mentions from the top left of your analytics as described here. Please consider applying filters to your search or adjusting the timeframe using the calendar icon to reduce the number of mentions before you export.
