I recently updated the flexmonster version to 2.8. I am having issues with csv export as the previous flexmonster version used to add double quotes to all the values in csv export. Now, it is exporting without the quotes. I read that this feature is added in the latest version. Please help me in enabling double quotes.
Thank you for reaching out to us.
Our team would like to kindly explain that the usage of quotes in CSV export was optimized with a minor update v.2.7.23.
The value will be wrapped with quotes only in case it contains the separator (so it needs to be enclosed).
As for now, the described behavior can not be changed.
We would like to ask you what is a use case when quotes are needed for each value.
Our team is looking forward to hearing from you.
We have been using quotes in our reports by default. So is there a way where get them back in the report? Like a setting where I can set “showQuotes” = true / false? We have clients who are expecting double quotes.
Thank you for writing to us.
Our team would like to kindly inform you that the desired option is going to be added with a minor update ETA June 01.
Our team will notify you as soon as the version is available to download.
Please contact us in case additional questions on this point arise.
Any updates on the flex monster update for the double quotes issue?
We are glad to inform you that for CSV export, the new option
alwaysEnclose was added to enclose all fields in quotes.
