A. The Comments export will include the body of the comment, as well as identifying information about the User that submitted it (links.created_by.id, links.created_by.email, links.created_by.name), the timestamp of its creation and the ID of the Suggestion it is linked with.
Q. I haven't received my export!
A. The exports will be sent from firstname.lastname@example.org. Check your spam folder or any filters. It's possible the email got flagged since it does come from a no-reply@.
