Currently the data-export option is hidden in an invisible ellipsis. One needs to know where that invisible ellipsis is, then they need to hover over it, then they can click it, and finally they can see that this is where they can choose the "Export" option. In my experience, exporting data is a pretty common task, so I don't understand why you go to such great lengths to make it difficult to find.

RE: Make the data export buttons VISIBLE

Please take this on priority to have a simple button to export the data as every user don't knows that there is already a hidden option for the same. I don't think it would be a big deal to get it pending since last 5 years.

RE: Make the data export buttons VISIBLE

This hidden excel export button brought us low customer satisfaction rates :-(

Only let the mini-Menue be visible constantly - independent of the movements of my hand.

I cannot use the "export" option in the menu on top of the page. It is stuck to screenshot format. In my opinion it could be replaced by an option-Button to extend the data volume to 300.000 Lines and more colums. That seemed much more useful to me.

A simple button to export a table is really needed in my opinion.

Creating a Power automate button works for only 1000 rows, which is really not useful at all.

Would be an easy fix if toolbar could be permanent instead of requiring user to Hover for it appear. Would also be a workaround for similar suggestion: https://ideas.fabric.microsoft.com/ideas/idea/?ideaid=40dbb291-4fa9-45db-8a9d-ca07db8827dc

Even just make the ellipses always visible. At least that.

This is critically needed! I've spend a soul crushing amount of time with end users showing them how to hover in the exact spot to get the ellipses to show.

The current option to export data is not easily found, leading to frustrated users.
