Data interaction options

Below are the available interaction options you can turn on and off.

  • Filter others: Users can select a value from a chart to be a filter for all charts, including itself. For example, if a user selects the value 'France' on a chart, and adds it as a filter, all charts will show results for only 'France'.
  • Filter others only: All charts are filtered, except the chart where the value was selected.
  • Decompose: Users can slice results by an additional attribute on either Rows or Columns. Users can select either all or a portion of the graph to decompose.
  • Drillthrough: Users can view and export underlying data of a chosen value. The extract contains information on all metris, attributes, and attribute values.
  • Focus: Enables users to zoom in on a range within a chart.
  • Fullscreen: Users can view the dashboard as a fullscreen.
  • Widget slides: Users can view the widgets as slides in a presentation.
  • Comments: Users can add and view comments on a dashboard (see Adding comments to dashboards).
