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 into a separate worksheet) and printed to PDF (each report printed on a separate page). Note that when exporting dashboards with graphical report/chart components to Excel, the data behind the charts is exported as a list report - the visualization is not exported.

Options for dashboards


Graphical Reports

Graphical charts can be exported to Excel, PDF, and PowerPoint, as well to PNG or JPG files, and a SVG vector image. Note that when exporting graphical reports/charts to Excel, the data behind the chart is exported as a list report - the visualization is not exported..

Options for graphical reports


Text-based Reports (List, Crosstab, Gantt)

Non-graphical reports can be printed to PDF, and exported to Excel, CSV and TSV files. See Printing Gantt Reports to PDF.
