The email subscription feature is great where the user will get the snapshot of the dashboard/report in the email.

However, I noticed that the image is low quality and appear small in the email content. It will be great if the user is allow set the preferences on the image quality and size in the email content.

Currently, it's too small and low quality to be really useful, and this is a frequent requests from many of my customers. Though I tell them that it's supported but they are let down later by the usefulness of it due to the size and quality.

subscribe reports need to be higher quality

The PNG just isn't enough, and having to go to the website isn't ideal. At least a higher quality picture would be good, but a PDF would probalby make more sense. better controls of which reports come to an email. Also had issues with complex report showing rendered even though they do on the ...

Configurable Display Size of Images in Subscriptions

It would be great if there is an option to configure the image size of a report or dashboard in the subscription. I currently face the issue that the image gets scaled down and it's not readable anymore.

Native resolution of report snapshots in subscription emails
