Creating a dashboard in Dashboard Designer is as simple as choosing a layout template, theme, and the content you want to display. In addition to displaying content generated from Interactive Reports and Analyzer, Dashboard Designer can also include these content types.
- Charts: simple bar, line, area, pie, and dial charts created with Chart Designer
- Data Tables: tabular data
- URLs: Web sites that you want to display in a dashboard panel
Dashboard Designer has dynamic filter controls, which enable dashboard viewers to change a dashboard's details by choosing different values from a drop-down list, and to control the content in one dashboard panel by changing the options in another. This is known as content linking.
