Google Sheet import/export app

Wanted to ask the following, hopefuly getting an answer from Luke M. but anybody else's comment is appreciated.

So I've installed the 'Google Import/Export' app (https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/2630) and it's working pretty good for what is intended.
I am able to export data from Splunk to Google Sheets.
The problem I am facing is that when exporting a lookup table from Splunk which contains numbers, the numbers go to the google sheet as strings.
For example, if the number was a 15 in the lookup table, when it shows up in Sheets it will be '15. And sheets is treating it as a string.

Is there a recommendation on how to get around that?

I think it would take a feature request to make that work. The library I am using in the app treats everything as strings. I might be able to add something that detects if the string could be a number and then convert it accordingly.

Is there an specific way to submit a feature request for your app?
Dont think it has to be done through Splunk Support Portal, is it?
Please advise.
