Exporting data from Amazon QuickSight analyses

You can export data from an analysis to a CSV or PDF file. See the following sections for more information.

Export data from an analysis to a CSV file

To export data from an analysis or dashboard to a comma-separated values (CSV) file, follow the procedure in Exporting data from visuals.

Export data from an analysis to a PDF file

You can export content from a dashboard into a Portable Document Format file (PDF). Similar to a print-out, this format provides a snapshot of the current sheet as it appears on-screen at the time of download.

To export an analysis sheet as a PDF

  1. Open Amazon QuickSight and choose Analyses on the navigation pane at left.

  2. Open the analysis that you want to export.

  3. At upper right, choose Export, Download as PDF. The download is prepared in the background.

    When the file is ready to download, a message appears saying Your PDF is ready..

  4. Choose Download now to download the file. Choose Close to close without downloading.

    If you close this dialog box without downloading the file and want to recreate the file, repeat the previous step. Also, the downloadable file is available only temporarily. If you wait too long to download it, the file expires. If this happens, QuickSight instead displays an error message saying that the request has expired.

  5. Repeat the previous steps for each sheet that you want to export.

The process for exporting to a PDF works the same way in both dashboards and analyses.

You can also attach a PDF to dashboard email reports. For more information, see Sending reports by email.
