Research Tools: Congress.gov Enhances Option to Download Results Into Spreadsheet or .CSV File
Downloading search results to a spreadsheet was a very popular feature when it was introduced in April of 2017. We are happy to expand the ability with this release.
Enhancement – Increased number of downloadable search results.
Export up to 1000 search results items to a spreadsheet or CSV file, increased from the previous limit of 500 items.
Enhancement – Treaty status steps link to related Senate chamber amendments
For treaty documents for which Senate chamber amendments were proposed, considered, or agreed to, related status steps link to the amendment’s object page for ease of reference.
For example, under the Actions tab of 111-5 Treaty with Russia on Measures for Further Reduction and Limitation of Strategic Offensive Arms, status steps related to several Senate amendments link directly to the amendments.
This release also includes backend work addressing enhancements to Congress.gov saved search alerts.
