Emailing sheets

Cloudera Data Visualization enables you to share dashboards through email. You can send them immediately, schedule them at specific times and intervals, or through a triggered response when reaching a specific monitored threshold.

Before using the email function, you must enable the feature in site settings. For instructions, see Email settings.

Complete these prerequisites in your system configuration:

  1. Select the sheet you want to share in email by clicking on its tab at the bottom left corner of the Dashboard Designer interface.
  2. In the top menu bar, click the (ellipsis) icon to open the supplemental menu, and select Email.

    The Email Current Sheet modal window appears.

  3. Choose one of the three options for sending an email.

    1. Email now – For instructions on providing email details, see Immediate email.

    2. Schedule Email – For instructions on providing email details, see Schedule-based email.

    3. Email based on threshold – For instructions on providing email details, see Threshold-based email.

  4. Optional: After creating emails, you can monitor them in the Jobs interface, review their details, rerun, cancel, and so on.
    For more information, see Managing jobs.
