Include Formula Fields When Exporting Reports to XLS in Lightning UI

Lightning Experience

It appears that when using report builder in lightning experience, you cannot export any formula fields by using the Export button contained within reports. In Classic UI, you can achieve this by going to "Printable View" but its not in "Export Details".

Please consider adding back this capability for a future release. I have several formula fields that would be useful to export and include in an excel based report output.

This information posted here is current as of Winter 17' release. 

Other reference materials: - Link to Question about topic - Six year old idea to add feature to report export. Again, you can achieve this by using Printable View with salesforce formatting copied into excel sheet.
