Issue

When you try to export dashboards that use web page objects to image or .pdf files, the web page objects appear blank in the exports.

Environment

  • Tableau Server
  • Tableau Desktop

Resolution

If you want the static data from the webpage to display in the export:
  1. Save the data as an image or convert it to text.
  2. Add the saved image or text to the dashboard in a text or image object. For more information, see Adding Dashboard Objects in Tableau Help.

Cause

Tableau does not store the web data displayed through the web page object.
