Selecting a dataset is the preliminary step before you start designing a dashboard.
When you create a dashboard, you drag-drop the scenarios to the design area. It is only after adding a dataset and binding attributes to these scenarios, that the scenario is meaningful.
You can add multiple datasets in a single dashboard and bind different datasets to different scenarios.
Drag and drop any scenario onto the design area of the dashboard. Note that the Data Binding panel automatically expands as shown in the following image.
Go to the Data Binding panel and choose the suitable dataset from the list.
Once the dataset is loaded successfully, you will see the measures and dimensions available in the dataset.
