Exporting Dashboards and Reports

Anything that can be exported to Excel can also be exported with comma-separated values (CSV) or tab-separated values (TSV).

Exporting graphical reports results in a PDF document displayed in Adobe Acrobat Reader. Gantt charts are given a print dialog for configuring the list and graphical aspects separately. See Printing to Gantt Reports to PDF below.


Dashboards and their components can be exported to Excel. Each report on the dashboard is automatically exported to a separate worksheet.

Graphical Reports

  • Graphical charts can be exported to Excel, PDF, and PowerPoint, as well to PNG or JPG files, and a SVG vector image.

Printing Gantt Reports to PDF

Run the Gantt report. In the Actions menu of the rendered report, choose Export/Print to PDF.


The dialog that appears includes 3 radio buttons, as shown in the screenshots below. The first button will always display the topic of the report:

  • Select the Gantt button to print the Gantt chart only.
  • Select the List and Gantt Chart button to print both the list and the chart.

If printing the Gantt portion, select the date range you want to print; adjust the size and orientation as necessary.

For additional options, click the More button. Options described below:
