Export as XLSX file

Wrike only exports to Excel as an XLS file, which has been out of date since 2007. I want to be able to export as an XLSX file because the current version of Excel has capabilities that the 15-year-old version doesn't. Manually changing the version after exporting using Save As in the Excel app doesn't work because data can get jumbled during the file transition. Allowing users to export to the current version of Excel makes sense because it is what everybody has on their computer at this point and allows for capabilities that are needed by businesses around the world.

I am in support of this update - the other items with excel export: 

  1. Tasks Title comes in as a hyperlink, and when you remove them it removes all nesting indentations. This can take time to reformat. 
  2. Effort and Duration come through where it looks like hours but is actually a date and time. So when you convert the column it comes out as a fraction, rather than the true number. This causes pivot tables not to work when you try to use them to review the data. 
  3. Despite have aggregation turned on and it's showing in the project plan for effort, the rollup of hours for subtasks did not export for Effort, though it did for Duration. 
  4. This roll up functionality is also non-functional in Wrike Analyze - undermining the functionality of this system from a data perspective.
