Exporting Workbook as PDF from Tableau Server Only Exports One Sheet

Issue

When exporting a workbook as PDF from Tableau Server, only the sheet that is currently being viewed exports as PDF, even when "Sheets in Workbook" is selected.

Environment

  • Tableau Server 2018.2.0

Resolution

To export an entire workbook to PDF from Tableau Server using "Sheets in Workbook," the workbook must be configured to "View Sheets as Tabs."

This can either be done by navigating to the Details page of the workbook in Tableau Server and making sure that View Sheets as Tabs is selected, or during the publishing process from Tableau Desktop, select View Sheets as Tabs when the option is presented. 

Cause

If "View Sheets as Tabs" is not selected, Tableau Server will not recognize the other sheets in the workbook when exporting as PDF.
