    2. Admin > Manage Jobs and Sets > Run a job > Select “Export Physical Items” job > Next
    3. Select the name of the set you just created > Next
    4. In the “Run a Job - Enter Task Parameters” screen, for the field “Export into folder” select Private. Leave all other settings as they are, like so:
    5. Submit the job and wait until it completes
    6. Admin > Manage Jobs and Sets > Manage exports > Private tab
    7. From this screen you should see your export job, click into the job to view and download your file which should include a column for “Number of Loans”
