Looker Studio is a great tool for making a dashboard, using and analyzing your data, and making the most of it! When a user needs access to it, you can use the share feature of the tools to send them an url.
But sometimes, you need to share a static version of the report, or you want to share it with someone that can't access Looker Studio. One way to do this is to export your report to a PDF file.
In this tutorial, I'll guide you through Looker Studio to export your dashboard as a PDF file.
The first thing to do is to open your report and set up the filter you need. If you have multiple pages, you can set up a dynamic filter on each. Looker Studio will keep them as long as you do not refresh the page in your browser. That means that you can filter on a campaign containing only "branding", change pages, create your pdf file, and still have your filter on branding campaigns.
Once you have your data set up, you can seek the PDF export.
On Looker Studio, you have two ways to reach the PDF export configuration :
Once one of the two methods is done, Looker Studio will show this pop-up:
As you can see, you can choose to download all the pages or only the one selected. Check only the one you want to export.
In the additional options, you can :
Once the configuration is done, click on download and wait a few minutes for Looker Studio to create the PDF file and launch the download.
It can be convenient to receive your report by email at a given time, and you can even choose to receive it at the selected recurrence. And you can even choose multiple emails where to send it.
To create your task that will send your report automatically, follow these steps :
