Add a parameter

A parameter links (binds) values between a parameter panel and a report panel on a dashboard. When these two elements are linked, you can select or enter values that will dynamically filter the information displayed in the report panel. You can use a parameter to control one or multiple reports.

Bind a parameter panel to a report panel

  1. Click Parameters in the Dashboard Control dialog box. The Parameter Bindings dialog box opens.
  2. Click the Add a New Parameter button in the bottom left corner of the Parameter Bindings dialog box. A new parameter is added to the list.
  3. Click the Bindings field and select the data category to bind the report panel to the parameter.
  4. Click Add to add a Binding field.
  5. In the new Binding field, select the parameter panel to filter the report by.
  6. Click Apply to create the parameter binding.

When the parameter panel is bound to the Report panel, you can control what information the report panel displays. For example, to display information for a single member of the group, clear the All Values check box in the parameter panel, and select the check box for the member you want to see.
