[rt-users] Spreadsheets/Export missing Custom Fields

Thanks, Kevin.
How would I get all the custom fields into the Display Format drop down lists ...
or How would I get all the Fields into the Export specs?
I tried putting the Results.tsv file from v3.6.6 and put that into v4.0.10, but it made no difference.
That was in my /opt/rt4/share/html/Search directory.
I assume that there is no compile needed to do such a change, but I know nothing about changing the software.
My experience is limited to installing and upgrading RT.

This change in 4.0 fixed a longstanding bug in previous RT versions
which would ignore your carefully constructed display format and just
spew everything into your spreadsheet.  In fact, there was a popular
extension that implemented the current 4.0 behavior.

As noted by Jeff Blaine, you'll want to have your users update the
Display Format of their searches and save them.

It's certainly possible to create a second export that brings back the
old behavior if you're so inclined..
