Emailing a Dashboard¶
You can email a dashboard as an attachment in PDF, PNG, and HTML formats. You can also subscribe to emails that contain the dashboard report at every dashboard refresh for scheduled dashboards.
Subscribing to emails that contain the dashboard report at every dashboard refresh is not enabled for all users by default. Create a ticket with Qubole Support to enable this feature on the QDS account.
To email a dashboard, you must have the create permission to the Commands resource as described in Resources, Actions, and What they Mean.
In the Dashboard page, click on the gear icon as shown in the following figure.
Select Email as attachment.
In the Email Dashboard dialog box, select the required format from the drop-down list. By default, PDF is selected.
Enter the email address. If you want to send the attachment to multiple recipients, then add comma separated email addresses.
The following figure shows a sample Email Dashboard dialog box.
If a dashboard fails to render within 3 minutes, then the email option fails.
You can also email dashboards as attachments by using the command API. See Submit a Notebook Convert Command.
