Visual Insight: Make "Create Link..." feature also working on Graph objects (like bars) instead only in Grids

Status: New

Hi all,

the new feature to create links from one dashboard to another or other external data is a great feature even if I would prefer that we are also providing the "Link Editor" in addition to the possibility to create URL API Links. See also the following idea:


Provide "Link Editor" with Parameter Passing Possibility to other dashboards also in Visual Insight to enable Guided Analysis


Nevertheless also with the "Create Links" feature we are now able to following a guided analysis approach based on URL API and can jump from one Visual Insight Dashboard to another one with Parameter passing possibilities.

But: We always need to include a grid for this feature. This is often a showstopper for guided analysis as we want to use graphs for this navigation approach. For example the user clicks on a bar in a graph representing the respective month and jumps into a new Visual Insight Document filtered by this prompt answer. This does not work yet and I want to request this as enhancement that seems to be a low hanging fruit and will help us a lot.

At 2 of my customers this was a showstopper for using VI and go back to RSD.

 

So what do you think?
