If you are a Google Chrome user and nothing happens when you click the Export to Excel button on a Dashboard there maybe be a issue with Chrome's Pop Up Blocker.
When you click the export a little Pop Up blocker alert may appear on the right hand side of you Chrome Address bar. If it doesn't you can give this a try:
Go into chrome and Preferences.
Click, “Show advanced settings…”
under Privacy click the “Content settings..” button
Under Pop-ups click the “Manage exceptions…” button
Then add “app.donorview.com” and click done.
