Block the extraction to excel of a grid that will fail due to too much data.


Sometimes users in the UX, when trying to export data from a grid to Excel, will accidentally attempt an extract that has too much data to Export to Excel. We request an improvement to the platform to stop an extraction that will fail based on the user having too large a selection. In one example, a user triggered an export without properly refining the context selectors related to the grid. The model was frozen for 2 hours and in the end the job failed. It would be very helpful that the system detect that the number of cells is too large to export and immediately block the export.
