Frequently Asked Questions about PDF exports

Why didn't I receive my Board export by email?

When a user unsubscribes from Guru emails, all Guru activity emails will not be sent to that email address, including export emails. Please contact Support using the widget located at the bottom right-hand side of this webpage so that we can re-subscribe you to Guru emails.

Is verification information included in the PDF version of a Card?

All PDFs include the last verification date and Verifier of the downloaded content.

Can I customize the header or footer of the PDF file?

At this time, it is not possible to customize the look of the PDF file.

Why doesn't my emoji appear in the PDF file?

At this time, emojis are not supported in exported PDFs.

Why doesn't my embedded file or image appear in the PDF version of a Card?

If a file embedded in a Card is not hosted by Guru, it will not be included in the PDF version of the Card.

You can check the source of an image by right-clicking the image and clicking Inspect. Next to the Source, you should see the URL start as:
src=https://content.api.getguru.com. This indicates that the image is hosted by Guru.

We typically see this happen with images previously added to Cards via copy/paste from a third-party tool. Because these images are still technically hosted by the third-party source, they won't be included in the PDF version of the Card. We suggest editing the Card and re-uploading the images to ensure that they are hosted by Guru moving forward.

Can I disable the option to download Cards or Boards as PDF for my entire team?

While this isn't a setting you can control on your own, if you contact Support using the widget located at the bottom right-hand side of this webpage, we'd be happy to assist with disabling this function for your team.
