Dashboard Designer: Adding Reports

Deprecated Documentation

This document applies to pre-v2019.2 of the application. For current Dashboard documentation, refer to the v2019.2+ section.

Any Advanced Report, Express Report, ExpressView, and Crosstab Report can be added to a Dashboard. Existing filters and prompting parameters can be accessed and modified from the Dashboard Designer.

To add a report to a Dashboard, simply drag it from the report tree onto the Dashboard.

Filters and Parameters

When you add a report with prompting filters or parameters to a Dashboard, you have several choices for how these filters can be accessed on the Dashboard, as well as which reports they can apply to. Select the report tile, then click the Filters or Parameters tabs to edit the filter settings.

Select this option to prompt users to enter a value when running the Dashboard.


Interactive filters and parameters can be edited in the Dashboard Viewer filters and parameters panes.


Change the filter operator. Click the lock TreeReportLock.png icon to toggle whether other users are allowed to select an operator when running the Dashboard.


Set the value or values for the filter or parameter. If the filter or parameter is interactive or prompting, then other users can select different values when running the Dashboard.

You can edit some additional settings for reports on a Dashboard. The following settings are available:
