If your page builder has enabled it, you can export a PDF file, with a page for each slide of your report.

When you change the context in the header, or in the Export to PDF dialog, the new context applies for the whole report. For example, when you select a region or time period from the context selectors in the header, this sets the context for the whole report.

A page builder can unsynchronize cards from the global context to fix them to a specific context. For example, a card can be fixed to display All regions, or display context labels on the card. These cards are unaffected by changes to the global context.

You can select up to 300 slides for export as PDF. If your report contains many slides, it takes longer to export. You can select a smaller range of slides for a quicker export.

If your report contains more than 2,000 data bound cards, you cannot change the report context. Your PDF file uses the currently selected global page context

Note: Only publicly accessible images, or images from the Anaplan Asset Library display in an exported PDF.

A PDF contains data from the time of export, and your three latest reports are available for 24 hours after you generate them. You can Export as PDF again for a fresh export.

To export a report as a PDF file:

  1. In the report toolbar, select Export to PDF > Export.
  2. In the Export PDF dialog, you can select:
    • Page selectors from the context selectors, taken from all slides in the report.
      Where context selectors exist more than once in the report, only one context selector displays.
    • All to display all slides. 
    • Selected to choose the slides to display and enter the slide numbers in the text box. You can specify a range of slide numbers. For example, 1-5.
      You can specify a list of slide numbers, or a list of ranges. For example, 8, 11, 14-17.
  3. Select Export PDF.
    While it processes, you should remain logged in, and you can still use Anaplan. When your PDF is ready, follow the link in the notification within Anaplan, or from email if enabled in your notification preferences.

You have 24 hours to download the PDF.

To download a stored PDF from a Report page, select Export to PDF > Download.
