    Viewing Dashboards                                                     

     

    In this article, we’ll define the basic elements within your projects, such as dashboards and dashboard tabs, from the perspective ofa dashboard viewer. Then we’ll review an individual dashboard tab and discuss how your users consume and interact with dashboards. In the next chapter, we’ll take a look at how editors and administrators can customize dashboards in Edit Mode.

     

    This article addresses the following topics:

    • Dashboard sand dashboard tabs
    • The Navigation Bar
    • Navigation links
    • Options menu bar
    • Hover-over options on dashboard reports
    • Dashboard filters
    • Using pre-set drill-down paths

     

     

    Projects, Dashboards, and Dashboard Tabs

     

    Within each project, users can alternate between different dashboards.

    Embedding Dashboards With URL Parameter Filters

     

    From the Embed dialog (accessed through the gear menu) you can use URL parameters to define filtersthat will affect how data is computed and represented in your embedded dashboard.

    Once you have selected an attribute of interest from the dropdown (e.g. Region), you can type the name of a project attribute value into the Attribute Value Wildcard text field West). The embedded dashboard will be filtered accordingly.

    To make your embedded dashboard dynamic—e.g. filtering data in different ways to accommodate different types of users—it isalso possible to enter an attribute value wildcard (e.g. region_parameter)that your system can programmatically replace with an appropriate value (e.g. East) depending on the type of user who has accessed the embeddeddashboard.

    For more information on using dashboard filters to affect which subsets of data are included in report computations on a given dashboard tab, see Dashboard Filters.

    For more information on adding dashboard filters or applying them to one or more reports or widgets on a given dashboard tab, see Customizing Projects and Dashboards in Edit Mode: Filter Menu.

     

    Dashboard Filters

    Dashboard filters allow dashboardviewers to zero in on subsets of data that are used to compute one or more of the reports on the active dashboard tab. Dashboard filters superficially affect how all of a dashboard’sreports are computed without actually changing any of those reports’fundamentaldefinitions.

    Once a dashboard editor has added a filter toa dashboard—and has specified which reports that filter affects—dashboard viewerscan use them to specify which attribute values or ranges of time to include or excludefrom reports that are affected by the filter.

    In the following example, the current settings of the CLOSE QUARTER datefilter ensure that all three of the dashboard’s reports are computed only with data with close dates between the first quarter of 2012 and the fourth quarterof the same year. All data associated with close dates outside of this range is excluded.

    Figure 10 Dashboard filer settings determine how all ofthe reports on a dashboard are computed

     

    The PRODUCT filter from the example above could be useful for zeroing in on data associated with several products of interest. Only data associated with the selected products will be shownonce the filter is applied.
