Automate the creation of PDF's

Jump to solution

Instead of the user creating the PDF from a set of dashboards in PPM we were wondering if there is a way to automate this process.

 

Some dashboards can take a long time to run and also to create the PDF in PPM.  It would be nice to automatically create and save these PDF's.

Hi Don,

 

Not seeing any such feature in the Guides. Only thing I could think of is something along the lines of creating custom Reports.

 

Since it sounds like an Enhancement Request, what is the "business need"? I am guessing that some User's need to present the data in a meeting or to a superior regularly though it takes a long time for the Page to load with all of the Portlets.

 

If time is the issue, try using multiple Pages and see if that speeds up the loading/exporting.
