    Thanks for putting this together! 

    I was wondering if you had any ideas on how to implement multiple drill through's for one widget? On the same widget, one column would drill through to one dashboard while another column would drill through to a different dashboard. Any ideas on how to accomplish this?

    Did anyone ever get an answer on how to resize the pop-up window.  I'm getting a LOT of complaints from users about that.  I've scanned all these posts and have seen the same question but no answer yet...

    Nancy,

    Just tried using the ModalWindowWidth parameter at the widget level script. 

    prism.jumpToDashboard(widget, {displayDashboardsPane : false, displayFilterPane : true,displayToolbarRow : false, hideDrilledDashboards : true, displayHeaderRow:false, modalWindowWidth: 450});

    It works fine.  As I decrease the number the width of the pop up window gets smaller. 

    I didn't scan for the original question so maybe I am missing something.

    @Rajiv - there is a parameter drilledDashboardPrefix in config.j file within js folder for this plugin. By default it has value "_drill_" and it means that menu option to setup jump to will appear only if there are any dashboards with this prefix defined. Either add this prefix to dashboards that you want to jump into, or change this parameter to "" string and then you should see menu option and all dashboards. Hope it helps.

    Not sure if anyone else is having, or had, a similar issue.  I recently updated to 6.6 and I lost the jump to selection in my option drop down.  My widgets that I created prior to the upgrade still work fine, and the option is listed.  Any ideas?

     

    I figured it out.  Real stupid error on my part.  The target dashboard had a different cube, so there were no dashboards to jump to.

    If you’re implementing the Jump to Dashboard plugin in a Pivot widget, you might notice that the pivot cells turn into hyperlinks with a default blue underlined font. You can remove the hyperlink formatting and change the style of the Pivot cells, by using the script below:

    widget.on('ready', function(se, ev){

    setTimeout(function(){

     $('.p-value a',element)

     .css({'color': 'red' , 'text-decoration':'none'}) // change styling

        },500);

    })

    Is there a way to use separate set of filters for the main dashboard and the target dashboard? 

    My problem is when I am using JumpToDashboard plugin, the filters on the target dashboard are getting replaced with the filters on my main dashboard. Tried to use includeFilterDims parameter, but using this I can add only those filters which are already present in the main dashboard, not new ones. There are few filters I would like to add only at the target dashboard level which I don't want to include in the main dashboard.

    Alex,

    Please make sure you use "_drill_" instead of "_Drill_" it is case sensitive.

    Also please make sure you have published the _drill_ dashboard with the users you want to access it

    Let me know if this works

    Thanks

    What IE11 settings are required for the drillto to open? We never have an issue with these opening in Chrome, and they sometimes work on IE11, but not others. Are there specific IE11 settings that prevent the drillto from opening? There are no warnings, errors, etc. that appear to help troubleshoot. 

    Thank you.

    I'm seeing a strange issue with embedded dashboards, in that the jump-to-dashboard plugin doesn't take into account the most recent filters set on the dashboard, instead using the filters the dashboard is loaded with as embedded.

    For drilling into a dashboard from an indicator widget, this is inconvenient but can be worked around by including the filter pane in the drill dashboard. But this makes the use of the jump dashboard from a pivot completely useless -- the filter from the pivot row is not included on the drill dashboard.

    (I already submitted a ticket for this, but perhaps someone here has ideas)

    Jumping from same widget to different dashboards is currently not supported, we'll review the request and see if it can  be incorporated in future versions.

     

    @BI Reporting

    Looks like undesired behavior, it will require troubleshooting, please open a ticket and we'll follow up.

     

    @Karen Mullner

    Im not familiar with any special IE issues, when it happens can try opening developer tools (F12) and see if there are any error there?

     

    @Mike Van

    The required functionality is currently not supported. Please reach out to your customer success manager and we'll review the request with him

     

    @Iris Maessen

    Im not sure I completely understood the issue, since you submitted a ticket, we'll have someone take a look at it.

    I seem to be having an issue where a  drill Dashboard has been published, but when i remove the access and do a republish other users who use the JumpTo get a 404 error, it appears that after a publish you need to have the groups in there ot it will not operate.

    Using 7.2.

    Cache McClure and  Iris Maessen, I too have experienced trouble with the filters failing to pass to the jumped-to dashboard. It seems that filter passing only works when you are the owner of the jumped-to dashboard.

    Sisense dev team, I believe you can fix this by passing the filters as a query parameter into the iframe url instead of doing a PATCH on the jumped-to dashboard via the REST API.

    We are experiencing problems with jumpto in IE 11, i am using version 11.0.105.

     

    As an editor the jumpto option on the widget does not appear on the menu, so therefore cannot select a dashboard to jump to.

    As a view user no defined jumptos are available, it is almost like the plugin is not loading at all, on inspection of the code of the dashboard the icon where it would display that a jump to is available it not even included in the code.

     

    This works fine in Google Chrome, Firefox and even Microsoft Edge 41.16299.820.0.

     

    Does anyone have any clues about settings for IE11??

    Script documentation indicates that drilledDashboardDisplayType parameter default is 1 which is new tab.  However when you do not enter this parameter, default is to open in Popup.?  When I use the parameter and enter any of the choices, it does not seem to have any effect.  I tried putting the selection with and without quotes.

    prism.jumpToDashboard(widget, {drilledDashboardDisplayType:'1',displayDashboardsPane : false, displayFilterPane : false,displayToolbarRow : false, hideDrilledDashboards : true, displayHeaderRow:false});

    Default Value: 1
    Possible Values:1 New tab 2 Popup window 3 Current tab

    Is anybody else experience longer loading times with this plugin enabled? We see an increase of 4  to 5 seconds when enabling this plugin. From an end-user perspective this means a fast or slow moving dashboard.

    Is there a way this can be fixed?

    Hi 

    Does this work for scatter plot graphs?

    Hi Cassandra,

     

    Scatter chart is not supported by in this plugin.

    It's supports indicators, line / column / bar / Area / Pie charts & pivots.

    Hi Alon 

    Is there a plan to have it support scatter plots in the future?  We were previously using the plugin provided at https://support.sisense.com/entries/60285470-Drill-to-Pop-Up-Dashboard and it worked with scatter plots.

    Hi Alon 

    I have realized that when you have a widget that has a filter the same as the dashboard filter the filter cancels itself out causing the pop up widget to filter incorrectly.  For example if you have completed date of "2015" selected as a widget filter  and completed date of "include all" as a dashboard filter when you select "Jump to dashboard" the widget will show data with any completed date rather than just data from 2015.

    Hi Cassandra,

    Thanks for letting us know - ill look into this.

    Regarding the scatter chart - currently, this plugin does not apply to it. Checking regarding the possibility to add it.

     

     

    Thanks

    Hi Alon,

    can you change the icon indicating, that given widget is jump able, to NOT scale with the size of the widget. Right now it looks not too nice and in smaller indicators completely overlaps widget title. Thanks

    Hi Michal,

     

    Can you please attach an print-screen, showing the overlap?

     

    Thanks

    Hi Alon,

    here you go. I've just noticed it happens only in Design Mode(overlap), in Viewer Mode overlap does not happen, but icon is still stretched.

    Thanks Michal !

    This issue was known and was mentioned in the introduction section.

    Please update your  image plugin , the old image plugin caused this smear.

    If this still persists, let me know.

     

    Thanks

    I'm having an issue where the right-click option shows sometimes, but not all. I have the same issue when editing the widget and attaching a _drill_ dashboard to it. Sometimes I have the option to assign it, others I don't. It seems that if I refresh the entire page it comes back, otherwise its hidden.

    Hi Ryan,

    On which widget does this happen ? please note that on indicators you should click on the number itself, clicking on the white space / title wont bring the option to jump.

    In addition, you can define for an indicator the option to "left click" it (as if it was a URL) in order to activate the jump, change the drillToDashboardNavigateType parameter in the indicator to 3.

    Let me know if that works out for you

    Alon,

    The issue for me was assigning the drill-through dashboard using the UI. Once I stopped using the UI to identify the dashboard and hard coded the ID, it worked perfectly.

    It seems that disabling the drill-into (https://support.sisense.com/entries/60281100-Disable-Drill-into-) is negatively affecting this widget. When I include the disable-drill-into logic in a widget script it can (not always) hide the jump to dashboard option as well.
