Export Dashboard to PPT/Excel

It would be great if we would have the function (export Dashboard to PPT / Excel). We are having a lot of reviews with the Executives and most of time we are combining charts (e.g. some from Ops and some from other Finance team) into 1 deck, so with this function, it would reduce our time spend to screenshot the Dashboard.

    PowerBI has this functionality and its so easy to use. Right click and export Summary or Details. In Cognos we need to create a Drill through report and pass all the parameters and then display the report in Excel. Its alot more work in Cognos Analytics.

    We also have a client who requires an export to PDF.  This is probably desirable for many other users, so can this be considered too?

    Stephen Young:  You can export the Dashboard to PDF today.  This has been available since CA 11.0.10.  See this technote for details on how to do this:

    For us is export to Excel neccessary for future consolidation of outputs from various sources. Another company department use Qlik Sense and they have this required advantage

    I don't see a way to vote against this.  It doesn't make sense to me to use an online, interactive artifact that is used to perform data exploration and gain quick insights due to its fluid nature, then carve one, minuscule view of its static output to a stone tablet to hand to an exec.

    There are things in Cognos that are actually broken and need attention.  Voting up items like this one draw attention away from real problems.
