    Request: File name of exported files (NT8)

    Hi,

    I am using NT 8.0.5.2. I am frequently exporting the Executions and Log to CSV files. I have a little request regarding export file naming.

    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Go to main window, select Executions tab
    2. Right click, select Export

    Current behaviour:
    1. The default file name in the "Export As..." dialog will be "NinjaTrader Grid <Date> <Time>.csv|xlsx". The prefix will be the same ("NinjaTrader Grid") for all tabs. This forces me to manually rename the files when I export multiple tabs.
    2. The <Time> component will use am/pm notation, i.e. if I export at 14:00 hours local time, the <Time> string will be "02-00". This leads to a confusing file system sort order (alphabetical sort), as "02-00" will show before "10-00" (which would be my export 4 hours earlier at 10:00 hours).

    Desired behaviour:
    1. The default file name for export should contain the tab name, e.g. "NinjaTrader Executions <Date> <Time>.*" . This will remove the need to rename the file.
    2. The <Time> string should follow 24hrs notation, i.e. "14-00" for an export at 14:00 hours. This will ensure a better sort order in a file system view.
    3. The same applies to the Trade Performance window (and might apply to other windows as well).

    Thank you,
    Stefan.

    Yeah this upset me around Beta 3/4 when we could finally get some results.

        Hi Jesse,

        after using NT8 for 4 weeks now and having exported numerous Executions and Log files during that time, I'd like to emphasize how import this feature is to me. I spend an estimated 3 minutes a day renaming export files. Not that much, but it's adding up. Perceived ease of use would go way up if this was implemented.

        Kind regards,
        Stefan.
