Exporting filter lists

    Currently when you export a list to CSV from the "Service Desk" screen, and it includes the Assignee field, the output gives a full XML-based breakdown of the entire field with lots of information in "internal" format.


    I don't know about anyone else, but when I'm exporting a list of tickets, Changes etc to CSV and one of the fields I'm exporting is the Assignee, I just want their name!


    Can we amend the back-end reporting engine for CSV reports to simply extract the assignee Name (or in other complex fields, the displayed info) instead of the whole complex field structure?


    Here's an example of an assignee field's contents below:

    id: "1308709"~name: "Rob Dunlop"~"Rob Dunlop <Rob.Dunlop@centnnnnnnnnshOOe.gov.uk>"~title: "Infrastructure Specialist (Contractor)"~last_login: "2016-12-28 12:47:56 +0000"~role: "Service Agent User"~~~phone: "75727"~"Steve Holton"~mobile_phone: ~language: ~IT - Technical Delivery~740100~disabled: false

    What problem will this feature solve?:
