Whether you’re an in-house marketer or one working at a marketing agency, tracking performance data is only half the battle.

You also need to present that data to others–whether on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis–so that everyone is up-to-date on progress and on the same page in terms of next steps.

But, what if those you’re sharing your reports with want a hard copy in addition to the live dashboard? Or, what if they don’t have the Databox app downloaded yet?

Well, now you can schedule snapshots of your reports in JPG or PDF formats. This way, your team and/or clients will receive your reports in a format that’s accessible, no matter what.

Check out this quick tutorial for how it works.

Step 1: Select the Databoard or Carousel you’d like to share

You can now share one Databoard or a carousel of Databoards in JPG or PDF formats.

Simply select the Databoard or Carousel you’d like to share from the main Databoards screen and click the ‘share’ icon.

Step 2: Choose the recipient(s) and frequency

Want to share your report with your team and/or client right now? You can do that.

You can also automate your snapshots so that a PDF of your report is sent to the same recipients at the same time every day, week, month, or quarter.

Then, hit ‘schedule’ and your recipients will receive your reports, in the format that you prefer, at the same time every day, week, month, or quarter.
