Small change to Outage Reports

When exporting an Outage Report to CSV, the Monitor Name column is not completely filled in. Instead, only the first outage for a given monitor has the name filled in and all the rest are blank, until a different monitor is listed in the report.

I think I understand why that was done from an aesthetic perspective, so that you don't have the same name repeated over and over, but I tend to slice and dice these reports (pivot tables, etc) and one of the most common pivot points is the Monitor Name. So, long story longer, this means I have to manually fill in those names, which is not ideal. I'd like to see the name be filled in for each line item in an exported CSV report.

Re: Small change to Outage Reports

Hi dgorman,

Thanks for raising this. Since CSV reports are primarily for further processing it makes sense to include the monitor name in all the rows. We will modify the current behavior to support this.

Our dev team accepted to take this up quickly and will update you here.
