Fix the Audit Log export to download

The Export Results -> Download all results functionality and spreadsheet that is created needs to be fixed.
The log entries stuff under "Audit Data" do not seem to have similar data columns and it needs to.
When you export it, you get an audit log.csv with the following headers:
CreationDate UserIds Operations AuditData
The Auditdata is just a huge mess of what looks like should be another CSV. Extracting this and trying to turn into a CSV based on commas results in some rows clearly having different data than others.
It is impossible to nicely go through these logs to check client IPs and verify if they are legit or not.
What is the point of this audit log besides forcing people to want to buy Azure AD Premium (not gonna happen for some clients at its price).
