Bulk export to .pif

Is there a way to export ALL vaults to (separate) .pif files? I am on multiple teams, and each team has multiple vaults, and I have my own personal stuff. Every 4 months I would like to export to an encrypted sparsebundle as an emergency backup. However I currently have to individually select one single vault within a team, select export-all (typing in credentials etc), change the export filename from the generic default to indicate the team and vault name, navigate in the finder to the export location, click export, and then go to the next one and start all over again. I would like a single process where once I authorize myself I can export all of those vaults in one shot.

    Hi @hesspaul!

    Currently it's only possible to export one vault at the time I'm afraid. I think this is because certain permissions might prevent you from exporting data from a specific vault: having access to a vault does not mean that you can also export the data within it if you are using a Business account.

    Thanks for the quick response.

    At the very least, can the default name of the exported file begin with TeamName_VaultName so that it's easy to tell them apart without manually renaming each one?

    I think this makes sense. I will open an internal discussion so the developers can take a look at this. Thank you!
