I think it would be great to have the ability to add Dimensions/Values on BloX pop up widgets that do not exist on the parent BloX widget. I realize that you can use the Jump To Dashboard action to achieve this. But, that can lead to a bloat of dashboards. Here is an example.
We have started to use a "KPI/Status Bar" at the top of a lot of our dashboards.
This is a great BloX widget in that it allows us to display multiple KPI's on a single row. Our goal is to then allow a user to click on a KPI and through BloX pop ups give them the details about that KPI.
The BloX popup is great, but it is limited (at least as far as I can tell) to the fields that you have in your Parent BloX widget. This means that when I do not use the Carousel option, (I am displaying overall KPI values), I cannot use any Items in the pop up, only the Values that are present on the parent widget.
This is a single dashboard that has 6 KPI's. That means an additional 6 _drill_ dashboards to use Jump to Dashboard. If I have 20 dashboards, that could lead to an additional ~120 dashboards that would have to be maintained.
If there is a way to do this, I would love to know what it is.
If not, and if this request is not way out there, I would like to request that something like this be added.
