Not sure if this feature request thread is still taking requests.

Export to Excel/CSV
The format of the csv isn't very workable and requires a lot of cutting and pasting to get a basic column layout.

v9 Billing reports.
Haven't been able to find a way to only export the total used for each VM for the month, without breaking down per day?

Hi John,

What format would you like to have for reports?
v9 Billing reports.

So basically you need to know how much data VM backups took at particular day? You may use BACKUP INFRASTRUCTURE CUSTOM DATA report to get full backup size info for VMs.

CSV is a fine output to work with, it just requires much manipulation once its exported to CSV, not all data is on the same sheets for example.

I'll look into that.
We have an external billing engine that takes a CSV file with (VMName, Data used (gb)) for the month. At this stage I've achieved this with a powershell output.

So you would like to have all data in the same page of .csv format?

Business View Groups as a backup selection in VBR.

If I categorise all my servers into groups and categories it would a greatly beneficial if I could use those groups as a backup selection, like with VM Tags now.

Do you want to categorize backup servers themselves or other objects(proxies, repositories etc).
If first, how many backup servers do you have?
Thanks!

I want to use Business View to create and categories of VM's I want to backup, then I want a VBR backup job to use this Business View for creating its VM list.

Hello John,
That makes total sense and we do have the feature in our plans.
For now you can propagate the categories and groups to vSphere tags and use the tags as VM containers for backup jobs.
Thanks!
