Wyn Enterprise User Guide

Containers and Components

Wyn Enterprise provides additional scenarios like containers and components that help the user to create a feature-rich dashboard.

Containers

The container scenarios - Container and Tab Container help users in organizing the dashboard layout. These scenarios make the dashboard formatting easier as you can apply the same style template on all the scenarios inside the container. Also, you can move multiple dashboard scenarios by moving the container containing the scenarios.

Note that nesting the container scenarios is not allowed in Wyn Enterprise.

  • Container
    The Container scenarios greatly facilitate the layout design of the dashboards. You can place dashboard scenarios with the same theme in the same container to apply a uniform theme.

    Note that on previewing a dashboard and applying cross-filtering, the filtering is applied to all the scenarios (or slicers). If the scenarios are placed inside a container, the scope of filtering can be limited to the container by setting the Filter Scope property of the container to 'Container'. By default, Filter Scope is set to 'Global'.

  • Tab Container

    In the Tab Container, you can add multiple tabs where each tab holds multiple dashboard scenarios. You can also customize the appearance of the tab strip like the background color, font color, font style, alignment, and so on. Note that on previewing a dashboard and applying cross-filtering, the filtering is applied to all the scenarios (or slicers). If the scenarios are placed inside a container, the scope of filtering can be limited to the container by setting the Filter Scope property of the container to 'Container'. By default, Filter Scope is set to 'Global'.

Components

Wyn Enterprise supports two different types of component scenarios - Rich Text and Image. Both of these scenarios are used to display additional information to enhance the dashboard.

  • Rich Text
    Rich Text provides the user the ability to add explanatory text in the dashboard, for example, you can add rich text to explain the scenarios to the users viewing the dashboard. This makes the dashboard more informative. You can also format the text and add links to jump to a URL, a dashboard, or a report, in the rich text editor.

    Tab Container Example

  • Image
    Add images to create a dashboard design more appealing to the users. For example, you can include images for your company logos, product items, etc. to create an interactive dashboard. They also make the information for the user easier to understand. You can add an embedded image, shared image, or external URL for the image in the dashboard.
