Exporting the current results of a view to a new node

Hello,

I would like to have the option to export the current results of a view to a new node every time I change the date filter. Thus, I can build an archive of results.

The alternative of contextual filters doesn’t seem to work in my case because I want to obtain results for a range of dates (eg. 1 - 22 September), which isn’t possible with contextual filters.

Do you have any suggestions?

Kind regards,
Ioannis

There is no out of the box functionality for what you want to do.

Basically you need to export the view’s data in HTML format and put them in the body of a node.

There is the View data export module https://www.drupal.org/project/views_data_export that exports the view results in different formats but I don’t think that HTML is supported.

You can have a look and try it though.

Dear Sotirios,

I have already checked this module, but as you have already understood it’s not useful for what I want to do. I will try to come up with other solution for my problem and I will follow up.

Thank you,
Ioannis
