Ability to export Story to PDF

Damien Boden shared this idea 21 months ago

Hi,


Are there any plans to enable a story to be exported to PDF? We are using reports for our board / committee meetings but we need a way to preserve a version of the report for audit purposes.


One option is to create snapshots of reports to then use these in the story but this means

a) Having to create new snapshots every month

b) Creating a new copy of the story every month to rename as the current month

c) Having to replace the version of all of the reports used in the story


If we could create a pdf to be saved locally then that would solve our problem, the ideal solution would be to be able to save a copy in Yellowfin so users could access the history but I don't see how this could be achieved without following the steps outlined above.


Thanks,

Damien
