Downloading Entire Dashboard with One Sheet per Page as a PDF File

Arcadia Instant enables you to download the entire dashboard as a PDF file with each sheet on a separate page.

Availability Notes:
  • This feature is available only when thumbnails are enabled. See Enabling Snapshots and Thumbnails.
  • For snapshots of custom JS visuals, we support only ECMA Script 5 for Javascript.
  • Arcadia Instant does not support PNG download on the Windows platform.
Before you download the dashboard as a PDF file, navigate to the General menu, and select the Enable "Download as Image/PDF" option.

In the following example, we will demonstrate how to download Sheet 1 and Sheet 2 of the dashboard on separate pages.

  1. Open any dashboard. We are using the PDF Export dashboard with two sheets.

  2. Click the (ellipsis) icon at the top left corner of the interface.
  3. Click Download as..., select PDF from the secondary menu, and then select One sheet per page.

    Select the "One sheet per page" option from the PDF secondary menu
  4. A Generating the requested file screenshot message appears.
  5. After the download is complete, open the default download folder on your computer. Arcadia Instant saves the dashboard to a *.pdf file that has the same name as the dashboard. In our example, the file name is PDF Export.

    Notice that the two sheets in the dashboard are on separate pages.

    Also, note that Arcadia Enterprise renames dashboard with names that contain characters not supported by the file system. For example, for the dashboard "PDF/Export", it generates the file PDF_Export.pdf, replacing the forward-slash (ASCII #47) character with an underscore (ASCII #95) character.
