Building a Review Process

Making your dashboards visible / accessible to all relevant stakeholders is important, but you may also be interested in viewing or manipulating your data outside of the AppInsights platform. This can be useful for advanced computation, or for easy distribution of data in hard-copy during an important meeting or event. There are a few options at your disposal…

Reporting

Our scheduled reports feature allows you to send an email with an attached image of your dashboard in png or pdf format. You can send a one-time email, or you can schedule it to send every week (or multiple times a week) at a day / time that you specify. To get started, open the share menu at the top right of your AppInsights dashboard.

Scheduled Reports: send an image or PDF of your dashboard via an automated email

Data export

If you’re interested in interacting with your AppInsights widget data using other tools, you can easily export data to a CSV spreadsheet. Please note that the export history will vary depending on the widget in question. A standard number widget might only provide a single data point, while a line graph that has been populated over many months will be represented by a larger data-set within your exported spreadsheet.

Please note the specifics of each visualization’s “data memory” can be found in our widget technical specs support doc.
