Configure the Excel/CSV filename which is generated by the standard Export to Excel/CSV button from a datagrid

38

After pushing the Export to Excel/CSV button on a datagrid a rather random filename is generated by the framework.

Please add the possibility to configure the name of the Excel/CSV file in the properties section of the Export to Excel/CSV widget

Would still like this as it makes the standard CSV export more attractive for users.
Most people adore the simplicity of simply clicking a button from the grid and seeing exactly what they export and can even filter without the use of those excel templates, but they highly dislike the long ‘random’ generated name.

This would be very handy

I really think that this should be pushed

Anyone knows whether or not this is a planned feature? 

It could save a lot of time, if not having to use the custom excel export module everytime one requires a custom file name...

And make it so that you can build the string using entities from the model.
