Update export actions created from a saved view when saved view is modified

Update export actions created from a saved view when saved view is modified

I think the title says it mostly, but to be clear I'd like to be able to do the following:

 

1. Create a saved view of a module

2. Create and export action using the saved view as basis

3. Modify and re-save the saved view (i.e. add a new column, change the filter etc.)

4. The export action should update itself based on my changes to the saved view without me having to recreate it

 

This would be super helpful 🙂

@DavidE thanks for posting this idea, it would be very helpful. 

Does anyone in the community have any update on this idea? Or any suggestion on this topic?
We have currently a bunch of actions that should be manually re-created due to an update of the saved views.

This seems like a bug and should already exist. It's just intuitive that an update to a saved view should just flow through to the export.

Agreed - that would be really helpful!
