Advanced Interactions And Drill Through


Use Advanced Interactions And Drill Through

To ensure that you have full control over the behaviour of your report and can determine the expected user experience, you can edit the default interactions and use the ‘drill through’ features.

You can use visual interaction controls to customise how the visualisations on your report page impact each other, in other words, filter and highlight each other.

You can use the ‘Drill through’ feature to create a page in your report that focuses on a specific entity, such as a product, category, or region. You can then access this page when you drill through from the related visuals that are on other pages in your report. The information that displays on the drill through page will be specific to the item that you select on the visual, as illustrated in the image above.

In our scenario, your managers have requested one report that displays all the information that they need to accomplish their yearly planning and forecasting activities, ultimately helping them make better, strategic organisational decisions.
