    All, thanks for the continued feedback on this. Our goal is to be transparent with our plans, which, in this case, is that this functionality is not currently on our roadmap. The tough reality is that we have finite resources to address a large number of high priority ideas for this product area. In an ideal world, we would do everything our customers ask for. Unfortunately, the product team has to make some tough decisions. Current investments are focused on delivering an amazing analytics experience in Lightning. We will continue to share your feedback on this issue with our product team for them to consider as they develop their future roadmap.
