Socrata 101: Creating a PDF or Printing a Story from Socrata
1. Installing an Extension with Chrome
2. Identifying Document to Print
For the purpose of this demonstration the Zero Fatalities Story in Socrata will be used. This document is relatively lengthy and contains both text and visualizations. The story can be found here: https://dashboard.udot.utah.gov/stories/s/Strategic-Direction_Zero-Fatalities_Story/hscz-x4ad/.
3. Activating the Extension
Once the document has been identified to be printed or converted to a PDF, the extension can then be activated. This is accomplished by "clicking" on the PrintWhatYouLike button on the top toolbar of the browser. Once this action is completed a menu will appear providing various functions.
4. Printing the Entire Document
To print the entire web-document click the "Print" button on the PrintWhatYouLike Menu. Once Print is selected a print menu appears so that a PDF can be created, or the document can be sent to the printer. If the entire document is not needed and there are elements of the document that need to be removed, please see Step 5.
5. Altering the Document from Printing
Once the PrintWhatYouLike Extension is activated in the web page you would like to print, there are options available to change what is printed. Sections can be removed, such as toolbars and other web elements that may be unnecessary to print.
