2 - Select the INVESTIMENTI view on the top tab.

3 - Select ORDINI on the left side.

4 - Select ESEGUITI to filter only executed orders.

5 - Click the spreadsheet icon and select xlsx or csv as export type.

Once the trades are saved, your Sharesight portfolio will be populated and the portfolio overview page will load.
