How to direct link to a shared report URL?

Reports can be shared via a special link which can be given to people without a Wink Reports login.


That link will open up a portal with menu options to download copies of the report. However you might want to create a direct link to immediately download the report in PDF or Excel format without opening up the portal screen.


This can be done by adding the following parameters (this example shows PDF) to the sharing URL:


<long sharing url>?inline=1&pdf=1



For example if your sharing URL is:


https://secure.winkreports.com/reports/s/5f868c91/KOxenp3vAsHh4UZ



Then you can create a direct link to download an Excel version like this:


https://secure.winkreports.com/reports/s/5f868c91/KOxenp3vAsHh4UZ?inline=1&excel=1


The following are valid formats to use:


FormatParameters
Microsoft Excel&excel=1
PDF&pdf=1
CSV&csv=1
CSV with Header&csv_with_headers=1
