How would I deselect row in a custom print function?

                { extend: 'print', 
                   //deselect rows before executing any script
                    .....
          }

    You can call api rows().deselect(),

    I have tried that and received this error in the console log
    Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected identifier

    { extend: 'print', 
                         var table = $('#timeLogTable_Home').DataTable(),
                          table.rows('.important').deselect(),
                         
                         init: function(api, node, config) {
                            $(node).removeClass('dt-button buttons-print')
                          },
                         className: 'btn btn-primary',

    You will need to create a custom button. Here is an example. The last example in the buttons.buttons.action docs show how to execute the desired export inside the action function.

    That error is usually accompanied by a line number.
    Otherwise use JSLint to debug your code. It's not a DT error.
