The Accordion enables you to toggle between different sub-dashboards on demand by clicking an Indicator widget.

The Accordion add-on is useful for providing large amounts of information within a limited space.

To install the Accordion add-on:

  1. Download the attachment.
  2. Extract the .zip folder into the plugins folder: C:\Program Files\Sisense\app\plugins. If the folder does not exist, create it prior to extracting the .zip file.
  3. After those files have been unzipped there, you may also have to restart the web server.
  4. Create a dashboard that will be displayed as the sub-dashboard when using the Accordion widget. The dashboard name should start with the prefix ‘_accrd_’ for the dashboard to be hidden for non-dashboard-owner users from the Dashboards panel.
  5. Open the Indicator widget’s script editor.
  6. In the Script Editor, paste the following code:
    widget.on('ready', function(){
    //default: true, // uncomment this to make accordion to open on start
    element: element,
    widget: widget,
    dashboard: dashboard,
    dashboardName: '_accrd_myDashboardName',
    dashboardFiltersSelection: [], // dashboard filters which should be passed to the target dashboard. For configuration please see section 'Configuration' point two.
    dashboardFiltersInheritance: false, //gives the possibility to apply all of the filters from the parent dashboard to the target dashboard
    widgetFiltersInheritance: false // set to true if you want to inherit the widget filters to the dashboard
  7. Edit the script and define the values relevant for your use-case. You can modify the following objects:
Parameter Name Description Types Default Value Accepted Values
default Open or do not open accordion on start boolean false true, false
element, widget, dashboard Properties that can’t be changed
dashboardUrl URL of the destination dashboard (can be used instead of dashboardName ) string ‘http://localhost/app/main#/dashboards/<YOUR_DASHBOARD_ID>’ – used as example String with the link to the destination dashboard
