    Configurable List Formatting in the Excel Report

    Asked by bkurniawan on September 04, 2014 at 08:44 AM


    Is it possible to change the Configurable List format setting in the Excel Report? Right now every row is cramped all at once. Please see the screenshot attached.

    As an alternative you can either make a Grid Report. If the intention is to share it with more people

    Or download the PDF version, which looks better.


    Another suggestion is to download the CSV version and use coma separator to make columns.

    To do this: Go to the Data tab and select text to columns under data tools then select delimited and hit next. Then select comma as the delimiter and hit finish

    Is there a way to get the old JSON style output as shown in the original question?  It would bet MUCH better for my needs (a computer processing it rather than a human).  An option in the widget settings perhaps?
