Select which Sites should be exported. Hold down Shift or Ctrl to select multiple sites. Check Include Variables to export all variables and their ids that are associated with the selected sites. If it is not selected, the names and ids of the sites will only be exported.

Finally, click Export and select where to save the .csv file.
