Custom page separation for dashboard PDF exports


Description of the enhancement required:

Allow for page separation when exporting dashboards to pdf so that two published items may be printed on separate pages, back-to-back.


An example of the enhancement:
When selecting options for a PDF export on a dashboard, users would have the option to choose where the page separator is placed.


How would it help their business process:
When attempting to print a dashboard that has several published items that span multiple pages, it can be difficult to arrange them in a manner that allows for legible, well formatted output. If users had more control over where page breaks are placed, it would greatly enhance the functionality of this feature.

  • We have the same issue at Cartier, it is crucial for us to have this enhancement done as soon as possible.

    Thanks for your attention and your help.


  • Did they ever create a 'page break' feature for exporting pages to PDF?

  • Hi jsheldon2009,

    Once you're exporting a dashboard, you can use the grid handling drop-down menu to choose how to "separate" your pages.

    This feature would be really useful also in the New UX, like in reports (at the moment it don't seems available).
    It would be a great enchantment
