CSV export semicolon field separator

Michiel Heijmans shared this idea 2 years ago

Hi Yellowin community,

When exporting to csv, can I specify semi colon as field separator (;) instead of the default comma (,)? I checked the documentation, export settings and system settings and cannot find a way to specify an alternative field separator.

Thanks,

Michiel

Hi Michiel,


Thanks for sending in the question. Unfortunately, what you are after here currently isn't possible. Yellowfin only uses the comma delimiter when exporting content into .CSV format. A similar enhancement request has been raised in the past for this:


Task ID #205161 - Ability to export CSV with custom delimiter.


I've gone ahead and linked this question to the enhancement mentioned above and have converted this post into an idea for our product team to review. This also allows other community members to up vote this post if they feel passionately about this functionality as well.


If you have any questions or concerns regarding any of this please let me know. If I don't hear back, have a great rest of your week!


Kind Regards,


Dustin

Thanks Dustin. It would be good if the field delimiter could be configured.
