    Describe the enhancement in detail

    When you export a Freeform report to a CSV file it is using the separator

    defined in the T_SYSTEM_CONFIGURATION.config_name='separator'.

    But when you export any grid -such as the Event Management list-, the

    export is using the default separator, the tab character.

    Customer wants this export feature to use the separator variable, as well.

     

    What business problem will be solved by adding this new feature?

    The Event Management exports will be readable for the end-customer.

     

    Describe the importance and urgency level

    Medium importance. Currently they have a workaround, using FF reports.

    But they want this to be implemented

     

    Describe how you envision this new feature being implemented.

    The grid export should use as separator the value in

    T_SYSTEM_CONFIGURATION.config_name='separator'
