Operation that allows you to choose a row from a table or graph and drill down (filter) by another column(s) (dimensions).

Multiple drill down(s) are possible until there are no more columns available.

These filters add to the existing ones (combos filters, panel filters, objects, and columns).

For example:

I have a table with customer information. I choose a customer and select the products column. The table will now show the products purchased by that customer.

A window with the columns (text dimensions and dates) available for drill down will be displayed, confirming the choice made.

We chose the column Product.

  • Drill down on cross tables and charts will keep the object crossing.
  • Drill down comes enabled when the component is inserted into the dashboard. To not allow drill down on a particular component (table/graphs) you must turn off the Drill down property in the object properties in panel editing.
