Can a dashboard from Visual layout editor be exported to a report form such as PDF? 2024

Hi Everyone,

I’m reiterating the question originally asked by @j_ochoada, whether there is way to now export image of an interactive dashboard, made of many components, using the visual layout editor, to PDF.

@ScottF Thanks a lot for your support.

Hello @apaul ,

yes, this time you are lucky. Check out this collection to get started: First Steps with KNIME Reporting – knime – KNIME Community Hub

Hi @nan,

perfect, thanks a lot for the nudge!

Though do I understand it correctly that only the reports from the “KNIME Reporting” and “KNIME Views” extension are supported for these composite dashboards? It is not possible to create interactive dashboards using the components from the “KNIME Quick Forms” extension and export a PDF version of it. Because it would say “This view is not supported”. Correct?

Thanks for your support.

Wishing you also a nice day,
paul

Correct, at the moment only KNIME Views are supported. This should be good for most typical reports. Also more advanced use cases are possible, see e.g., Report Designer Data App – KNIME Community Hub .
We would like to understand the use cases better for exporting interactive input widgets to a static PDF. If you can elaborate a bit on your use case, I am very interested.
