Keep formatting on Excel Export

When exporting a table or pivot table, the cell and value colors should be preserved.  End users develop specifications for how to color these based on operational conditions, and often make selections based on these.  The formatting is a critical part of the actionable insights.

YES - this is a huge need for us - the lack of formatting in exports is an issue in almost every project we work on, combined with another request here for including titles and selections in the exports.

Guys, 

I'm not sure if there is an update to this, but it's critical to keep formats when people export it to excel. We cannot expect users to download this and again redo color coding which is already done on the dashboard. We have various heatmaps that we generate and this defect kills the whole purpose.

Completely agree. My client uses a dashboard for technical and legal compliance - red/green - and loses this critical information on export - please sort this out!
