Data exports are created and managed via the Query tool - where an export of the query data may be run in the desired format (i.e. fixed-width, delimited, XML, JSON, etc.).
Most institutions export data to their general ledger via flat files on a scheduled basis, however the exports can be run on-demand for instances where the financial system may need a more immediate update. Slate can push out exports to our own SFTP servers or to a remote SFTP server.
The same query that would be built for a batched export to the general ledger can also be made available as a web service at any time by enabling web services on the query.
