Self-update dashboard with Schedule PDF Delivery

Hi community,

I wanted to create a dashboard that can update itself daily. As such, someone will upload a file to the internet, and I want my dashboard to automatically grab the newest file and update itself, then proceed to email me with the latest report (for example yesterday's and last 7 days'). However, I realize that the Schedule PDF Delivery is always greyed out whenever I have any filter on my dashboard. Is there any alternative?

Thank you

@andrehl, as per one of the limitations of Scheduled PDF Delivery, you can not enable the same on Forms (ie. Dashboards with Inputs). You might have to create two separate Dashboards with static time and schedule i.e. One for Yesterday with Previous days data to be scheduled daily after beginning of current dat and second with Last Week's data scheduled weekly after beginning of current week!

@niketnilay thank you for your response!
However, is there any other alternative? Like when using webhook or monitor for example?

@andrehl, by alternative do you mean for scheduled delivery of report from a form with input controls?

@niketnilay, Yes, but without input controls. It will just be a static PDF report
