Exporting Dashboards

In Arcadia Instant, you can export selected visuals or dashboards. The process captures all the dpendencies, such as datasets and custom styles.

Follow these steps to export a dashboard. Exporting a visual is quite similar; we describe it in Exporting Linked Visuals.

  1. Click Visuals in the top navigation menu.
  2. Select the Workspace that contains the dashboard you plan to export.
  3. Select the dashboard.

    In this demonstration, we are using the Flight Delay Information app.

  4. In the (supplemental) menu across the top, click Export.

  5. The Export Visual Artifacts window modal appears, with a default Filename of the type visuals_random_number.

  6. Change the name of the file; this is optional, of course. Here, we used flight-dashboard.

    To see what visual artifacts are exported, click Show Details. Notice that in addition to the dashboard Flight Delay Information and the three visuals it contains, the export file includes a dependency, the dataset that they share: Flight Data.

    Click Export.

  7. This starts the download of the export file to your default download folder.

    You can confirm the success of the export by finding the file on your system.
