Link Dashboard Prompts to Analyzer Parameters

This process only applies to dashboards that include parameterized Analyzer reports. You must have an Analyzer report with a query parameter in it in order to proceed.

The instructions below explain how to parameterize an Analyzer report.

  1. In Analyzer, choose a field in your report to which you want to link; then, right-click and choose Filter.

    In the example below, data will be filtered by Territory.
