I am trying to send specific dashboard components in regularly programmed html emails, and doing some basic reading suggests this certainly isn't an overtly offered feature by Salesforce (yet) but I was wondering if any one had any workarounds?
Right now, these components are tied to standard dashboards (no visualforce pages, nothing fancy).
I noticed each component can be opened in a separate tab as a PNG, is there someway to create a visualforce page that flattens the latest refreshed Component into a PNG and then links that back into an HTML/VF email?
(I am open to easier solutions as well!)
Note: I am aware of course of the 'Refresh and Send' option Salesforce provides, however I would like to send specific components in a template that I can control (and more mobile-optimized)
Edit: Regarding the PNG comment, all I was referring to is the ability to open each component as a PNG in a separate tab (right click -> 'Open Image in New tab') which suggests that some kind of 'PNG storage' at least for non-table components is possible
