Increase download limit on large sets
The limit on the number of records that can be download to Excel from a set is around 70,000 records. Sometimes it's necessary to download larger sets (200,000+) but this is limited by size. It would be better if there was an option to download in CSV so larger data sets could be exported. Or, the Retrieve Set Members API was improved to include the information that is present in the Excel file downloaded from the set's results page. Or, there was an additional export job that allowed a set to be exported using one of the bulk jobs under the Run a Job menu.

According to my test, the export capacity of Alma for large sets is 100,000. However, it still cannot fulfill the requirement of some users. Please add CSV as one export format option and extend the export capacity to 1,000,000 records, which is still within the capacity of an modern Excel file since its version of 2007.
