Download CSV from Custom Report (Minor Bug)

This is just a minor bug, but when downloading a CSV for the Custom Report, there is no file extension specified (the file downloaded is just 'download').

This makes it necessary to rename the file with a csv extension so it is properly opened by the associated programs.

On a related note - a more meaningful filename (based on the custom report and the report dates) might also be desirable instead of 'download'.

You should have a .csv ending if you click on the csv button. Which browser are you using?

Hi,

I've just tested and this occurs using the latest Chrome [Version 61.0.3163.79 (Official Build) (64-bit)]

In a related type of extension observation (also using Chrome), when you choose Excel as the file type to download your file it creates a .XLT extension which is an Excel Template file type. Then you have to find the file and change the extension or it doesn't open properly.

The excel file also has a generic file name (just "download") and I concur that it would be helpful to have a filename related to the custom report just downloaded.

Some browsers do not respect the suggested filename and extension.

If this happens, save the file to disk and rename it with the correct extension first. Then open it.
