I deployed it to workbook to the server a few minutes ago. I tried this yesterday on a different dashboard also. It does the same thing. When I click on the "export all" the mouse pointer goes to the spinning circle for a second or two and then nothing happens. Should it open the excel file? Also i made sure that the server has extensions enabled at the all sites level and the particular site that i deployed the workbook to also.
When you run on server It should download the Excel file. For a good test, I wanted to see what would happen if I ran the dashboard on a machine that doesn't have Excel. It still downloaded, but then when I clicked on it, it asked for what app I should use to open. BTW, I used superstore data.
Maybe, do you have a blocker that's preventing the download?
Any luck with this one. Trying to use the extension and running into the same issue where spinner shows post click, but nothing happens.
Apologies for the radio silence on this. I wasn't able to offer any time to work on a fix until recently when I've reworked the entire extension. You can read more about all the updated features here https://theinformationlab.co.uk/2019/07/18/export-all-extension-for-tableau-v2-released/ but more to your specific issue, the data export limit has been resolved.

I ran into the same issue and eventually discovered that your worksheets name must be less than 31 characters longs
I have shorten my names and recreated the Export All button (it's NOT dynamic) and it works now like a charm
I also think it's possible that you can't have any special characters in your worksheet name. I removed a '/' and it now works.
I've been using Export All extension on my dashboard to export the grid data to excel workbook.
On Tableau Dashboard i'm showing grand totals for all my measure values.
But after exporting the grid data via "Export ALL extension" my excel workbook is not showing up the grand totals.
Does this extension have any such limitations...?
Thanks in advance
