Drilldowns allows your users to visually navigate and analyze data in powerful ways. Drilldowns can be set into another widget, another dashboard or the same dashboard.

Drilldowns can be configured using the 'Drilldowns' menu option on each widget in the dashboard.

Drilldown Settings:

  • 'Drilldown Type' determines that drilldown will be configured to drill into a widget, dashboard, or connected widget.
  • 'Drill Into' determines which widget/dashboard will appear when the user clicks.
  • 'When clicked' determines which parts of the widget will be sensitive to a click. When a user presses on this section, or 'Any' for every part of the widget, the drilldown will occur.
  • 'Optional Drilldown Filters' determines what filters will appear on the new widget/dashboard. The settings will be passed along into the next drilldown with that filter enabled.


Widget Level Drilldowns

When interacting with a widget, the user will stay in the same dashboard but the current widget will change to the configured widget, with any associated filters.


Dashboard Level Drilldowns

Interacting with a widget will bring the user to the configured dashboard based on settings.

'Pass-through Dashboard Filters' means that the current filters on the sceen will be continued into the new dashboard


Define Drilldown Settings

You can define the drilldown option, When hovering over a widget with a drilldown enabled, the mouse cursor will switch from an arrow to a hand indicating that the widget has clickable functionality.

Note: If a drill down is configured, but a field is not specified under 'When Clicked', all clickable fields that would lead to a drilldown should have a pointer hand upon hover.
