Allow other view formats for Ideas, which are more visually appealing

It seems like currently to see all/most of the Idea data in a report, you basically need to create a list. It would be nice if we could create other formats for this data. If there are fewer amounts of data, we use pivot tables or such when we can, but I've only found lists when we are including most of the fields in the report. Can we get something more visually appealing then rows of info?  We are doing large business planning reviews with our executives and this view basically looks like a spreadsheet and doesn't look like an impressive use of the tool.

    Thank you for your idea. One suggestion for the ideas which need to be covered in an executive review would be to export the idea details page to a notebook. You could then print each on a page or tab through the pages in a web notebook during the meeting. 

    At this time we do not have plans to address this specific area. We hope you can understand.

    Can you expand on what format you would like to see the data in? Is there an example of a report format that you think would be useful?

    Sadly, I don't have an example. But, today, the only way to produce a report of ideas and to show all of our information is through a list with approx 19 columns.  Scroll right/left/up/down, and it's just not visually appealing, looks very elementary, and difficult to use in an executive review.

    I have worked in other apps where they used Crystal or some other type of reporting tool where I could actually drag/drop the fields into a customized format so if I wanted to show a grouping of fields (like 4 rows w/ 5 fields in each row), it would allow that and fit easily on one page. Then separate the ideas with a space or line or something. It was just much more visually appealing and allowed everything right on the screen or page if printed.

    This is a specific use case. But, goes to the challenge that reporting options out of Aha are weak overall (unfortunately). Thanks!
