Customizing donation export fields

There is currently not an option to customize donation export fields. This is a feature that has recently been added for people exports, but the only option to export donations includes every field available. Would it be possible to roll out a feature allowing the customization of donation export fields as well?

[Update 06/11/2018]: I wrote up an FAQ, inspired by this request, which outlines how to create an Excell macro which deletes all columns except for ones you specify, based on their heading. Check it out here. If you don't have Excell, the below workaround is still a viable option.
In the meantime, there is one workaround which may help reduce some of that spreadsheet cleanup work: 

- Navigate to Finances > More > Export Donations, then click “NGP” (next to “Past Exports”)
- Click “Export Donations” 

The export generated from the NGP view will include all donations since your last export from this view, and the CSV will only contain 34 key fields related to the donation/donor. That format is technically designed for compatibility with a 3rd party compliance software vendor used by many political customers in the US — but it may get you where you need to be.
