Compliment to the new dashboards in v14.7!

I miss one very important option for me and my users. At least 80% of the dashboards are usually downloaded and sent in excel format. PDF is only used for a small percentage. I would really appreciate if you could add this option, too.

 

Thanks,

Claudia

I noticed this too. There is no way to select anything other than HTML or PDF. Would be great to have Excel back again as a download option.

Had a similar thought, or at the very least give us the option of downloading a csv of the tabled data.

At our company (300 seats) no one ever prints out dashboards, neither staff nor management. Typically dashboards are viewed in the interface and often downloaded by the end user in Excel for further "processing". This processing includes adding other data sources for internal reporting or creating external client reporting. IF a dashboard is auto-emailed it is mostly sent in Excel. Sometimes they are sent in HTML but never in PDF.

 

So 1) We need that Excel option restored and 2) we live in a screen based world not a paper based one. The Page based presentation, while not insurmountable, adds little value.

The new format dashboards can only be output in PDF/HTML - historically you could output in Excel format too.  You can still do it by going directly from the report and schedule it but not if the report is contained in a new dashboard.

That was my comment too during the beta testing, those dashboards have been optimized for print and we run everything electronically. The layout looks much better but PDF and HTML are closed formats, at least Word and Excel should be retained from the legacy dashboards.

You need to offer an HTML AND Excel option within 1 email.

 

ie, I may want the pdf via email and if there is an issue I'd then like to be able to dive in to Excel.  I don't want to have to run 2 reports / automated emails to get this data.

why no Excel download format from new dashboards? I'm adding my voice to the chorus asking for this feature to be reinstated.

I'm a new user and saw the need for this immediately. Since it USED to be an option, at least I know that I'm not crazy to want it...
