Adding Drill Hierarchies to Widgets

Viewers can drill down in a widget and get an in-depth view of a selected value.
While viewers can select a drill path from the complete list of fields, it is easier to select a drill hierarchy from a predefined list. This is especially useful when there is a large amount of data and viewers need to remember specific fields and select them each time.

As a self-service user, you can add predefined drill hierarchies to widgets.

Note: Your administrator must first create the drill hierarchies before you can add them in the Widget Designer.
To enable drill hierarchies in a widget:
  1. Click Dashboards tab, the Dashboards tab, and select a dashboard from the list.
  2. Create or edit a widget in the Widget Designer.
    For more information, see Creating Widgets or Editing Widgets.
  3. In the data panel on the left, click Options button, the Options button, next to a field and select Hierarchies....
  4. Select the check box next to the drill hierarchies that you want to make available to dashboard viewers.
    Hierarchies with a lock icon always appear in the widget. To unlock this option, contact your administrator.
