FlexmonsterPivotTable-v2.9.0 Excel export problems

Answered
massimo besozzi asked on June 14, 2021

Hi,
I have switched to the FlexmonsterPivotTable-v2.9.0 version and in the new version if I export a report in excel it no longer shows in the file the indication of what has been selected as the report filter.
We have a series of exports saved in json and then reused by other systems, changing the output the readers after the export no longer work.
 
It would be urgent.
 
Thanks in advance.

Hello, Massimo,
 
Thank you for writing to us.
 
To show the selected filters in the Excel export, please enable the showFilters export option:

pivot.exportTo("excel", {
showFilters: true
});

Also, you can enable the showFilters option by customizing the Toolbar.
We have prepared a JSFiddle example for illustration: https://jsfiddle.net/flexmonster/on5furjd/.
 
Please let us know if this works.
Looking forward to your response.
 
Kind regards,
Vera

Hello, Massimo,
 
Thank you for your response.
 
You are right; the showFilters property is responsible for showing all filters in the export.
Looking deeper, we found that reportFilters stopped being shown by default in the Excel export starting from v2.8.20.

Our team will look into this issue, and we will provide the fix with the ETA 12th of July.
 
Please let us know if this would work fine for you.
 
Kind regards,
Vera

Good morning Vera,
if you succeeded before it would be better for me, otherwise I will tell the users to proceed with the insertion of the filters on the finished excel report.

Thanks and I look forward to yours.
