View Users - Sharing Charts and Dashboards

👤 This documentation is intended for View Users.

Periscope Data allows users to download their data in multiple formats in order to share with others inside and outside of their organization. Downloading charts can be useful when creating presentations with data visualizations, quickly sharing an insight with a colleague, emailing insights as CSV attachments and more.

Download a Dashboard as a PDF*

Downloading a PDF of a dashboard is a great way to generate a static image of an entire dashboard. They are ideal for sharing dashboards with users that don’t have access to Periscope.

Share a Chart Link*

<a name="DownloadImage"></a>
<a name="DownloadCSV"></a>

To share a single chart with others that have access to Periscope click “Share Link” in the chart menu. This will open up a new tab in the browser with the single chart and it’s unique URL. Users can share that URL with other Periscope users.

Download an image of a chart*

Graph like charts can be downloaded as a PNG file through the “Download Image” option after clicking on the hamburger icon at the top right corner of the chart. Downloading a chart as an image is not available for tables or cohort grids.

Download a CSV from a chart*

<a name="Slack"></a>

To download a CSV of all of the data used in a chart, click the “Download Data” option after clicking on the hamburger icon at the top right corner of the chart.

Post chart to Slack*

To post an individual chart into Slack, first click on the chart menu and then click 'Post to Slack'. Charts can be posted to public or private channels as long as the Periscope Slackbot is a member of the channel. The Periscope Slackbot can be invited by running /invite @periscope_data in the public or private channel.

Charts can be shared as a Direct Message if it is sent to the Slack username and not the display name. This functionality is still in development.

*These features are available on select plans or may be disabled by a Site Administrator. Users should contact their Site Administrator for more information.
