Creating reports from an analysis in Amazon QuickSight

Paginated reports are created at the sheet level of an analysis in Amazon QuickSight. When you create a new analysis or a new sheet in an existing analysis, you choose whether to make the new sheet an Interactive dashboard or a Paginated report. This way, you can have analyses for interactive dashboards only, analyses for paginated reports only, or you can have an analysis that includes both interactive dashboards and paginated reports.

To create a paginated report from a new analysis
  1. On the QuickSight start page, choose Analyses, and then choose New analysis.

  2. Choose the dataset that you want to include in your new analysis, and then choose USE IN ANALYSIS in the top right.

  3. In the New sheet pop-up that appears, choose Paginated report.

  4. (Optional) Choose the paper size that you want for your paginated report. You can choose from the following options:

    • US letter (8.5 x 11 in.)

    • US legal (8.5 x 14 in.)

    • A0 (841 x 1189 mm)

    • A1 (594 x 841 mm)

    • A2 (420 x 594 mm)

    • A3 (297 x 420 mm)

    • A4 (210 x 297 mm)

    • A5 (148 x 210 mm)

    • Japan B4 (257 x 364 mm)

    • Japan B5 (182 x 257 mm)

    The default paper size is US letter (8.5 x 11 in.)

  5. (Optional) Choose between a portrait and landscape arrangement for the sheet. The default option is portrait.

  6. Choose ADD.

If you want to create a new paginated report in an existing analysis, choose the plus sign (+) icon to the right of the sheet tabs in your analysis and follow steps 3-6 from the preceding procedure.

You can convert an interactive sheet to a paginated report, but you can't convert a paginated report to an interactive sheet.
