The General controls are elements that can enhance your dashboard, but don't deal directly with KPI data.

General controls

  • Annotation List — The Annotation List control lets you display a dashboard's annotations directly in the dashboard, for greater visibility.
  • Button — A clickable user-interface button.
  • CheckBox — The CheckBox control lets you add a customizable check box to your dashboard. You can then add Interaction scripts to make it do exactly what you want.
  • DashBlock Viewer — The DashBlock Viewer lets you display any DashBlock in your dashboard. This lets you re-use DashBlocks and still provide the customized Interactions your dashboard needs.
  • Drop Down List — Present a list of items for your user to choose from.
  • Ellipse — Add an elliptical shape to your dashboard.
