Exporting & Backing Up Your Articles
At HelpDocs we take regular backups of all your data, so you don't need to worry.
That said, if you need a copy of your data for any reason, it's super easy to grab it from our API.
Exporting as JSON
The HelpDocs API is the most flexible way to export data. You can query articles by category, and even select which fields you'd like to view. You can learn more about the API in our API docs.
