Automate pdf Export

Hi,


The new UX looks great and I know it has the ability to export a dashboard in pdf format. Is there a way to automate this process?


I want to schedule some reports to be exported as pdf files to a cloud location or send as attachments to an email distro list.

 

Thanks for your help.

No, currently there is no way these type of actions can be automated in NUX. It wasn’t even possible in classic one. You can post your idea on idea exchange forum

This is an idea posted in the idea exchange - https://community.anaplan.com/t5/Idea-Exchange/Scheduled-export-of-Reports-and-Pages-from-Anaplan/id...

 

I just liked it to upvote, might be helpful if everyone else does as well.

Although it is not present natively but you can always automate pdf export with Python. We have already done it with one of our clients & it works like a charm

Re: Automate pdf Export

Hello Misbah,

 

I am pretty new to Python, but would you typically automate these reports with the anaplan API since they would be exported as JSON or would another module be more efficient? I am trying to figure out how to export 3 charts from Anaplan via python in the simplest manner. Any help would be appreciated. 

 

Best,
