Download: Filter Header
This article explains how to add a report header as a plugin in Sisense.
Even though dashboard filters are displayed on the right hand side of each dashboard, some user prefer to see the selected filter values at the top of the dashboard. The included plugin adds a new widget that displays the title of the report, the filters added to the dashboard, and an optional icon. The title is pulled from the dashboard name. The filters and their values come from all the dashboard filters set on the right panel. The icon can be set in the widget's settings panel.
The following steps will walk through the process of adding the new chart type and creating a sample funnel chart.
Step 1 - Add the Plugin
Download the attachment and unzip the contents into your C:\Program Files\Sisense\PrismWeb\plugins\ folder. If you are using version 7.2 and higher unzip the contents into your C:\Program Files\Sisense\app\plugins\ folder. If the plugins folder doesn't exist, just create it. After those files have been unzipped there, you may also have to restart the web server. Now, when you create a new widget the filter header should show up in the list of options
Step 2 - Create the Chart
On your dashboard, click the Create Widget button and select Advanced Configuration. Next, select the Filter Header from the chart types menu. It will automatically pull in the title and the dashboard filters, and if you want to add a logo/icon then just enter the URL in the setting panel.
