We have recently been receiving a lot of feedback from the consumers of our dashboards/visualizations about difficulting reading them when they’re printed. I was hoping someone here had encountered the same issue, and if so, could shed some light on how you’ve worked around it.
For context, we use Looker embedded into our proprietary SaaS platform. The customers that use our platform then have access to view a library of Dashboards and Looks that we’ve created for them.
Oftentimes, they will consume these dashboards by receiving them on a schedule as a PDF. And in many of those cases, they will want to print them to bring with them to meetings/presentations, and to share internally within their organization.
The concern that they’ve been bringing up is that the text on the dashboards is difficult to read. Now, the text they’re referencing is actually the text in text tiles and the titles text of visualization tiles, not in a single-value viz.
Is there any customization to be done that could improve the contrast of those colors and make them more visible?
We’re struggling to find them a solution, and right now are just repeating the same “well everything will look better in the application itself; also maybe try playing with your printer settings?” messaging and it’s not been super well received.
Any thoughts or insights from other Lookerers who’d encountered something similar would be appreciated!
