Data exports are created and managed with the Query tool, where an export of the query data can be produced in the desired format (such as fixed-width, delimited, XML, and JSON).
Most institutions export data to their general ledger through flat files on a scheduled basis. However, exports can be produced on demand when the financial system might need a more immediate update. Slate can push out exports to our own SFTP servers or a remote SFTP server.
The same query that would be created 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.
