While the header of my question seems confusing, hopefully an easy solution exists somewhere.
I have a complex smartsheet's dashboard created which has metric widgets filled with values that update every time a new form is submitted to a sheet ("sheetX" for later reference).
What I want to do is try and capture a part (or whole if necessary) of the dashboard as a pdf, and attach said pdf to the corresponding row in sheetX (thus having a back-referenceable, visually appealing form of the data).
Through the smartsheet's API, I know you can convert a sheet to a pdf, but I couldn't find documentation on how to convert a dashboard to a pdf. Any suggestions would be great, I have already tried:
-embedding pdf creation html on the dashboard, but smartsheet does not allow the pdf creation API site
-linking outside programs such as Zapier or Google Docs (for company reasons, this must be done solely within smartsheet)
-making a visually appealing report (was not even close to the aesthetic and reading-ease that dashboards allow for)
