In the example below, you can see the data that’s available in the export:

Idea ID Idea title Idea votes Idea submitted date (UTC) Idea status Idea status last changed date (UTC) Idea public URL Idea product areas Idea public tags
325 Export submitted ideas to the ideation board 2 2020-06-10 16:51:34 Open 2020-06-19 00:32:50 Analytics, Ideation export

Thanks for highlighting that idea @mstone! We did actually consider a separated votes export, but we decided against it until we could gather more input/use cases. I believe the above use case would be more handy directly in Control, but can also imagine that it might be useful in an export in some cases.
