Jama can export your current set of items as a Microsoft Word document. If you want to show your content in context of other components, you can use hierarchy. The default Word export is a boilerplate that was created with Office Template and can be modified to meet your needs.

Export contextual hierarchy with Reading View

1.Select the items you want to export in Word using the Explorer Tree or an advanced filter.
2.Choose Reading View.
3.Select Export > Export to Word.
4.Upon export, your content will appear as follows, depending on how you selected your data:
oSelection with the Explorer Tree: The selected container will be the title page for the export.
oSelection with an advanced filter within a single project: Reading View will include the container hierarchy above the filtered items, up to the top of the project. Container items that show hierarchy have a grayed-out (disabled) checkbox, while the rest of the items can be selected. Hierarchical containers will be exported with the content items.
oSelection with a cross-project filter: Reading View will not display numbering. The export will be a listing of items without hierarchical information. 

Export a list of items

When you export items from List View, Jama exports all of the items in list form. The export will display a table of contents, followed by each of the items will display its name followed by a list of field names and values for each item that you have selected.

1.Select the items you want to export in Word using the Explorer Tree or an advanced filter.
