Create Chart Drill Down

Charts can be linked together or linked to any page type (chart, dynamic, static, dashboard, header detail, etc.). If a chart is linked to another page, when a user clicks a chart section (a pie slice in a pie chart, a bar in a bar chart, etc.), a data page or another chart displays to show additional details.

To create a drill down to link a chart to any page type:

  1. Access the chart page.
  2. Click the Change Settings icon in the Site toolbar.
  3. Click Design.
  4. Click Column Properties.
  5. Click Vertical View for the column that allows a drill down (as in, the column on the page that is drilled down to).
  6. Click the Edit button.
  7. Select the name of the page to drill down to from the Link to Page ID list box.
  8. Click Save.
  9. Close the Vertical View.
  10. Click the link for the column to drill down from.
  11. Click the Edit button.

    NOTE:   Binding Fields are needed when the linking relationship cannot be inferred.

  12. Enter the field name to bind to on the drill down in the Binding Field Names field.
  13. Enter the field in the Shared Fields Names field.

    NOTE: Shared Fields are used to pass additional column values to the linked page.

  14. Click Save.
