How to create dashboard with button that will send results to specified email address?

Path Finder

I apologize if this has already been answered but I did not find anything when searching. This seems very straightforward and I hate to even ask this, but here goes...

I am simply trying to create a dashboard where I can then press a button to email the results to a certain email address. I have an Actions menu at the top, but the only option there is to Print. Is there some way that I can get an Email button under this menu? Or is there some other way to do this? Any help or guidance would be appreciated.

Thanks!

The only methods I am familiar with would be to either 1) schedule the report to run automatically and e-mail itself when run or 2) export the report to PDF (the button should be right next to the print button) and then manually download and e-mail the file yourself. I don't know of a way to interactively send the report to e-mail and designate random recipients through the UI.

See the following post.

This will give a nice workaround to include a button in the dashboard and run a search on click on that button.

Secondly, Splunk provide a search command called "sendemail" (see here) using which you can send email the result of a search (use sendemail in the search of button click).
