How can I customize the spreadsheet format when exporting a list of items to Excel?

I'm trying to generate an Excel report of JIRA items filtered and extracted from Issues Filter area. Fields and Excel file are generated ok but the format is not as I expected. 

 - Logged work time appears in Seconds which is unmanageable.

 - Columns and Rows format are not very presentable.

How can it be customized?

You'll need to hack the code that generates the XML output to include your formatting and calculation from seconds to whatever-you-want.

Oops, sorry, only just noticed the "cloud" tag.  That also means you can't make the code changes you need to make.  You can only make code changes on Server version.

I see... Thanks for your reply Nic!

Use the Better Excel Plugin.

You can customize the Excel reportsby creating actual Excel files in Excel. No need to write a single line code, unless you want to run Groovy during the export, which opens another horizon for possibilities.
