On Demand Report XLS Export


I just came across a requirement from a business user. They would like a report that contains a table of multiple reports. Each row in the report would contain the report name, and a download link that will download an XLS export of the report. Currently, I have been ftp broadcasting these reports to a shared network drive, however, the goal would be for end users to pull the reports on demand.
For Example, the desired output of the report would look like:

Section 1
|Report A|Download Link|
|Report B|Download Link|
Section 2
|Report C|Download Link|

Is there currently a way in Yellowfin 7.1 to allow a user to download an excel export of a report via a link, or programmatically via JavaScript?

Good Afternoon Steve,

Hope you are well,

I have been looking in to your request and I can advise that at the moment the option to download directly from a link is not available, I can log this request as an enhancement if you would like me to.

Please let me know how you would like to proceed.
