    Automate pdf generation using Tableau Desktop

    Daniel Seisun

      Right now I'm generating around 50 pdf reports every Sunday using tabcmd and powershell to email them out. However this number will grow soon, and I'll need to start generating the reports during the week. The thing is I'm hammering Tableau server for about 4 hours due to the size of the reports, when really I'm not doing anything that Tableau Desktop can't do. I want to know if there is any sort of API (supported or unsupported) to pass requests along to the desktop application (ideally with filters) that would let me generate my PDFs?
