From the GIS Gateway, the Build Shapefile tool lets you create a new ESRI® Shapefile from InfoSWMM data. Every attribute can be loaded into the new Shapefile attribute table by using the data associated with each attribute type. The application of the tool can be directed at either a domain or an active network as necessary.
The dialog box looks like this:
A description of the features:
Choose the modeling data type that the new Shapefile will be based on
Fields to Export
Depending on which Data Type was chosen, a list of available information fields will be shown. Use click, ctrl-click or shift-click to select all fields you wish to include in the new Shapefile's Attribute Table.
Apply on Domain
If this option is chosen, only features contained in the current Domain (if one is defined) will be exported to the new Shapefile.
Apply on Active Network
If this option is chosen, only features in the Active Network will be exported.
This box contains the filepath and filename of the new Shapefile
Use the Browse button to choose a filepath and filename for the new Shapefile

Based on email inquiries and postings to the SWMM LIst Sever (a fantastic resource hosted by CHI, Inc.), I’ve discovered that many SWMM 5 users are unaware of the excellent documentation on SWMM 5 available on the EPA website at https://www.epa.gov/water-research/storm-water-management-model-swmm. It is divided into three volumes: Hydrology, Water Quality, LIDs or SuDs, and Hydraulics. The documentation is fantastically complete, with detailed theory background, process parameters, and fully worked out examples for all of the processes in SWMM5. It is truly an outstanding resource for modelers and modellers all over the world. It would be beneficial for you to read them (if you have not already downloaded the PDF files).
