Merged idea

This idea has been merged into another idea. To comment or vote on this idea, please visit TS-I-5970 Export Data Table from Visualization (Scatter Plot, Bar Chart, etc).

Ability to download data underlying a graph (not details-on-demand) Merged

If I create a table or cross table, it's possible to right-click it and select 'Export table'. This lets me download the data in the table in csv format, and I'm only downloading the data shown in the table (i.e. if I have 3 columns in my table, I download only those 3 columns)

I would like to do the same for other charts (bar charts, pie charts, xy charts, etc). Currently I only have the option to export to pdf or export to image. It's also possible to use the Details-on-Demand feature, but that lets me see the entire database which isn't good enough for what I need because it has dozens of unnecessary columns. For example, if I have a bar chart showing revenue for sale of fruit, I would like to download a table that looks like this:

  France Germany
Apples 300€ 1000€
Bananas 500€ 0€
Strawberries 800€ 200€

 

This feature has been requested by senior management. In-house reports must use certain templates, so it's not good enough to export the images from the dashboards and paste them into the reports. They require simple data that can be used to recreate the charts using our templates. Right now this can only be done manually, which is not ideal.
