Enable Export to Excel for Web Application Template
Exporting to Excel is only available for local desktop applicaitons, but more applications these days are deployed as web applications. The export to Excel feature is incredibly valuable, and would be a great addition to applications deployed to the Web and Cloud.
Thank you for your suggestion on improving LightSwitch. However, Visual Studio 2015 is the last release of Visual Studio that includes the LightSwitch tooling and we recommend users not begin new application development with LightSwitch. That said, we will continue to support users with existing LightSwitch applications, including critical bug fixes and security issues as per the Microsoft Support Lifecycle. Please see the blog post for more information: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/lightswitch/2016/10/14/lightswitch-update/

I completely agree Chris.
Hopefully they make this possible in the near future. It's a nightmare to try and find an easy way to do this without the built in capability that Desktop applications get.

I have the same problem, :( I prefered the web apps because those opened faster.
