Save a Dashboard as PDF (Export to PDF)

You can save a dashboard's data and view, freezing the displayed data, by saving it as a PDF file, which you can store or share with others via email.

Tip

Alternatively, you can save, share and subscribe a dashboard with its view settings, so that others can receive regular subscription emails to view the dashboard with live updated data, and receive a PDF with frozen data regularly as an attachment. See Save and Share a Dashboard for Later Online Viewing (Add to My Dashboards).

    Field Description
    Layout

    Select page orientation of the exported PDF: Portrait or Landscape. By default, the dashboard is scaled to fit into a single page.

    Paper Size

    Standard PDF settings for the size of the page.

    Scaling

    Select Auto (default) to ensure the dashboard fits into a single page. Alternatively, select a custom value to magnify or shrink the content if required.

    Content

    Select the parts of the dashboard to export to PDF:

    • This Dashboard exports the entire dashboard content and layout.

    • Sheets in Dashboard enables you to select the sections of the dashboard to export to PDF.

    • Sheets in Workbook exports all the dashboards which may be contained inside a single dashboard.

      For example, you can create a single PDF file where each dashboard within the Analyze Applications dashboard occupies a separate PDF page (Overview, UXI, Usage and so on).

  4. Step 4 Select Export to download and view the PDF file.

    You can store the PDF for later viewing, or share it with others.
