Portals for Tableau New Feature Spotlight: PDF Presentation Export

Imagine with me if you will, you’ve finally decided to take that epic vacation to the most remote destination you can think of. As it turns out, your grandparents are hosting friends they made during their last trip to the see the world’s largest stamp collection, making their wifi-free house off-limits. So, you decide on a relaxing jungle location somewhere close to the equator as the second-most remote destination you can think of.

The Ideal Vacation, Until …

You land ready for adventure, but your luggage takes a separate trip somewhere where there’s snow on the ground all year round, leaving you without your precious devices. It’s okay, though, because it just forces you to disconnect even more than you were already planning, thus increasing your enjoyment of the once-in-a-lifetime vacation.,

On day three, you’ve almost become one with nature. However, miraculously you receive an air dropped note in a similar fashion as “The Hunger Games.” The note tells you that you need to urgently create a presentation of your six sales dashboards so your CEO can present them in a last-minute conference that they’ve only known about for the last nine months and could not have possibly seen coming before you left for your trip.

You trek 30 miles back to civilization to try to find some way of accessing your Portal for Tableau. Remarkably, you actually find a turn-of-the-millennium internet café in the tiny village. The trouble is, their third-world firewall prevents you from downloading Microsoft PowerPoint presentations. Your heart sinks because you’ve come so far only to be met with a brick wall.

But wait! What’s this new button you see in the portal!?!

Download Presentation as PDF

As luck would have it, we’ve thought about you and your legendary mission. We have added the option to export presentations as PDFs. You are saved! You click on the button, attach the downloaded PDF presentation to an email and fire it off to the CEO just in time for them to use it in their presentation where they credit you as the hero you are. You arrive back home to much fanfare and a ticker tape parade.
