Can the column width of summary/pivot tables be changed in an exported dashboard .pdf?
janani.t 477 - days ago 
Hello Leon,

We are sorry, you cannot set the width of the tabular data in the exported PDF.

To get a better visibility, we recommend you to follow the below.
# Export the Dashboard as Each report in a new page. This will accommodate the entire table in the specified paper size, without truncating any of the columns.
# Set the orientation of the page to Landscape and choose proper Paper size to accommodate your data. If you have numerous column and the page size is small, then we would decrease the width of the column to fit them without truncating.
# It is also recommended to choose the Paper Size to Auto.

Please let us know if you require any further clarifications or assistance.

Is it possible to copy a whole database content to another database?
janani.t 451 - days ago 

Yes, it is possible to copy views from one database to another. This could be done with the same account or to a new account. Please do use the CopyReports API to copy the views. This will copy the reports, dashboard and table structure to the targeted database. You can import the required data into the copied table.

In case you are coping reports alone and not the tables, please ensure that you already have similar table with used columns in the targeted database.

For more details on how to use CopyReports API, refer to the link below.

janani.t 417 - days ago 

We are unable to get the exact scenario you are describing.

Zoho Reports does support color axis. To get the color or data label for your data series, please do add the corresponding column in the Color and Text shelves respectively. In case your requirements are different, then do share your data structure and the exact result you require to our support team at support@zohocorp.com.
