Create and Export Business Insights using Amazon QuickSight Paginated Reports

Voiced by Amazon Polly


Amazon QuickSight is a business analytics service handed by Amazon Web Services (AWS) that allows you to produce visualizations, perform ad-hoc analysis, and make dashboards to gain insights from your data. In addition to these capabilities, Amazon QuickSight also provides the capability to produce Paginated Reports.

What are Paginated Reports?

There are various sorts of reporting formats that can be used to store and share information. “Paginated Reports” is one of the formats. Paginated reports are print-ready documents created with the best printing and delivery in mind. They are polished reports that can be used for yearly reports, product catalogs, and marketing materials, among other things. The fundamental benefit of paginated reports is their polished, expert appearance. They can be utilized to create a positive first impression on potential customers or investors.

All information present when the report is published as a PDF or CSV is provided in paginated reports. Let’s imagine, for illustration, that your table contains 10,000 rows. A paginated report distributes the entire document over several pages so readers can view it. The resulting PDF includes a screenshot of the table that fills a single scrollable page when you use the same table in an interactive dashboard report. These tailored reports can be distributed to specific users or groups using email bursts to produce up to a million personalized PDF or CSV reports.

Customers may produce and distribute highly structured, customized reports containing business-critical data to hundreds of thousands of end users with Amazon QuickSight Paginated Reports without needing infrastructure setup or maintenance, upfront licensing, or long-term commitments.
