Sending line graph having combination of controls as e-mail on SAS Visual Analytics

Hi,

 

In a project, I need to send line graph in a report nevertheless we have controls which affect the graph. I need to reach the line graph for all combination of controls and send results as e-mail on SAS Visual Analytics via SMTP server. You can see an example for this situation below.

 

In example, there are a button, a dropdown list and a line graph. Values on line graph are changed by button and dropdown list. And I need to send all results of graph as email automatically.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hello @dcakir

 

Could you please elaborate where exactly did you hit the bump? 

 

Ad-hoc e-mails:

In the report viewer mode go to File -> E-mail...

 

Scheduled distribution: 

In the report designer mode go to File -> Distribute Reports... -> New report Job... -> etc...

 

The e-mail has a hyperlink to the report and optionally pdf-file will be attached? 

 

Best regards,

Petri Roine

It sounds like you want to automate the production of a chart for every combination of variables?

 

If so SAS VA can't do this itself, as a work around it is possible to automate your browser via a script, somethiing like the link below may help

Hi,

 

Actually,you exactly figure out what I try to say. But imacros couldn't achieve that. imacros can not find the buttons in SAS VA.

 

Thanks,

Hello Petri,

 

I tried both ways but the point is that I want to push the button and get screenshot then push another button and get new screenshot after that I send the screenshots as e-mail.

 

Thanks,
