Use Parameter URLs to Dynamically Display Relevant Data

Author: Joey Pruett , Tags: Dashbaords, Self Learning, BI Training |Category: Product Tutorials | Published: 8/26/2015

You can dynamically display and zero in on data in a dashboard by using parameter URLs. For example, you could customize a dashboard about territory sales so that the clothing department employees only see the clothing sales data. You could change the parameter later to dynamically show another sales category from the same data.

You start by creating a target in the URL dashboard that can accept the parameter, and then editing the link to point to the target name (such as prod for product) and the parameter (such as a category type, ie Clothing). This article provides the steps and syntax, as well as helpful links, for working with parameter URLs.
