Hello everyone!

I was wondering if there is a way to automatically generate and save the exported file when a node is created. In short, my users upload a photo and description to me for my product. I want to save the picture from their node in a folder along with a csv of the body for the node. So, is it possible to generate the file upon node creation?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You need to implement hook_entity_presave() or hook_entity_update() to run the View.
Alternatively, you can try Rules to start the VDE..

Sorry, automatically saving the export isn't a supported feature.
