The Jump to Dashboard add-on creates shortcuts from a widget in one dashboard to another widget in another dashboard via a new browser tab or a popup window.

The Jump to Dashboard add-on supports charts, pivots and indicators. This add-on is useful for presenting additional information about specific series on demand by jumping across dashboards without the need to present all of the data in a single dashboard.

After you have installed the add-on, you can right-click the widget and jump to the relevant dashboard or depending on your configuration, click the widget to automatically jjump to a default dashboard.

To install the Jump to Dashboard add-on:

  1. Download the attachment and unzip the contents into your C:\Program Files\Sisense\PrismWeb\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.
  2. Create the new dashboards that you want to jump to. When naming the new dashboard, add the prefix “_drill_” to the title to indicate this is a target dashboard. The default settings define that target dashboards won’t appear to the users in the dashboards list, and are accessible only when jumping to them.
  3. Define the target dashboard in a widget. Enter the editing mode of the desired widget, click on the settings icon, and choose the target dashboard from the possible target dashboards created.

Customizing the JumptoDashboard Add-on

While the default settings of the JumpToDashboard add-on do not require any  JavaScript configuration, you can change the settings per widget by editing the widget’s script. This allows you to modify the add-ons default behavior such as how to navigate to your target dashboards or what prefix determines which dashboards can be targets.

Default settings can be changed by editing the widget’s script or from the config file located in the plugin folder:

…Program Files\Sisense\PrismWeb\plugins\jumpToDashboard\js\config.js

For a full list of all the changes you can make, see the Parameters table below.

To customize the JumptoDashboard Add-on:

  1. Inside a widget’s edit mode, click on Edit Script.
