I want to save a file with a custom name while using Show-ListView function. Right now, when I am trying to save the file it is returning in this format "report-2019-02-25_095656.csv".

This is the simple script I am running:

$item | Show-ListView -Title "Export Items" -Property ` @{ Name="Item Name"; Expression={$.Name}}, @{ Name="Item ID"; Expression={$.ID}}

I want to save the file as "abc_items.csv". Thanks for your help.

There is no option to modify a file name out of the box.

Export to CSV is one of the export options available for ListView.

You will find it here:

/sitecore/system/Modules/PowerShell/Script Library/SPE/Core/Platform/Internal/List View/Export/CSV

Notice that file name is hardcoded in the script.

If you want your own file format you will have to modify this item or create your custom button.
