I am currently setting up an alert for a workbook that consists of multiple dashboards all sized A4 and in landscape orientation. A merged PDF is exported. When trying to avoid exporting into US Letter page size I found this thread.
I understand that changing orientation and page size via URL parameters in VizAlerts was not possible due to technical limitations of URL parameters and API functionality.
Now I was wondering if in the meantime a functionality was introduced to specify the page size of a PDF export in VizAlerts or if there are any workarounds? For now, I simply rescaled our dashboards to fit the US Letter but a PDF in A4 would be much preferred.
Thanks Frank. Right now, VizAlerts does not use REST API calls to pull the PDFs, so we can't just pass a parameter through. There's a version in-progress to support Tableau Online, which will embrace the REST APIs for this stuff, so it will get us closer to being able to use the API in the future.
