    Tabcmd - Can we export dashboard with various filters into PDF?

    Gowtham P

      Hi,

       

      I have a scenario like this. I am having a filter on Year in the dashboard.

       

      I would like to export 2012 data and 2011 data as two pages in a single PDF file.

       

      Is this possible with tabcmd command?

       

      Best Regards

      Gowtham

          Hey Gowtham -

           

          You can certainly do the first part (filter by year). You may be able to get the second part done depending on your report format and what your expectations are.

           

          For "Part 1", simply add a filter to your command-line when you request the report. For example:

           

          tabcmd export "Sales/Sales_Analysis" --pdf -f "C:\Tableau_Workbooks\Weekly-Reports"

           

          ....might become:

           

          tabcmd export "Sales/Sales_Analysis?Year=2011,2012" --pdf -f "C:\Tableau_Workbooks\Weekly-Reports"

           

          This assumes you have a dimension named "Year" in your data source.

           

          For "Part 2", you should investigate using the Pages Shelf

           

          Hope this helps!
