Snapshot/Export Widget for Operations Dashboard

Idea created by jdoke_napsg on Apr 16, 2020

    Real-world Problem: Emergency Managers like to see "live" data in an Operations Dashboard, yet they are required to put static pdf maps into daily reports. In some cases, this is a legal documentation requirement. GIS Specialists spend an inordinate amount of time every day creating and maintaining "paper" maps for export that are separate from the real-time dashboards that Emergency Managers rely on for real-time information.


    Audience: GIS Specialists, Plans Team Managers, Incident Command, Emergency Managers.


    Technical Problem: Operations Dashboard does not include an automated export feature.


    Solution: A snapshot widget that is built into Operations Dashboard would be useful to allow a .pdf, .jpg, or .png export of the dashboard at a user-defined time interval. When it is time to create their daily report, personnel can grab the export and put it into their report.
