Print a Dashboard to PDF

The content of your Dashboards can be exported using your browser’s native ‘Print to PDF’ functionality. These PDFs can be shared with any third-party stakeholders that do not have access to Falcon.

The Print to PDF functionality differs slightly per browser, so we’ve created this article with a few recommendations on how to optimize your export for your preferred browser.

Print your Dashboard to a PDF file

  1. Open the Dashboard that you want to export.
  2. Scroll all the way to the bottom to ensure the entire page is loaded.
  3. Choose the Print option in your browser’s menu or hit Cmd/Ctrl+P.
  4. Adjust the export settings as described per browser, below in this article.
  5. Click the Save/Print button.
