PDF dashboard

Is there a better way to print the dashboard as pdf?. I can use browser pdf option but it cuts off everything beyond what it can fit on page 1

Hi @jiwnaiakbar
Puppeteer or similar: https://github.com/metabase/metabase/issues/10022
Otherwise there’s browser extensions that can probably help: https://www.digitaltrends.com/computing/how-to-save-a-webpage-as-a-pdf/

Isn't there any planning/intention of the team to consider this feature ?

@devyetii Until we have a way to generate visualization server-side, which is a huge task by itself, then it won't be possible to generate PDFs.
It's something we want to do, but it will require multiple developers working for multiple months.

Hello, here at the company we decided to use this API to generate the PDFs. In our case, it turns off a Python script, working so far.

At our company we made a tool for emailing PDF reports from Metabase. It uses Puppeteer to generate the PDF's.
