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'.

    Container Scenario

  • 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.

Embedded Components

Wyn Enterprise supports two types of embedded components - Embedded Dashboard and Embedded Report. Typically, an embedded component is used to embed a document (dashboard or report) into another dashboard for additional business insights. This provides a unified view to the users with all the diverse documents in a single dashboard. Additionally, inserting a document into a dashboard will help the users in the decision-making process.

Note: Embedding the current document into an embedded component is not supported in Wyn Enterprise (also valid for cyclic embedded relationships within the dashboards) .

  • Embedded Dashboard
    Embed a dashboard into another dashboard using the Embedded Dashboard scenario. The embedded dashboard displays the same content as that of the referenced dashboard. Drop the scenario onto the design area and define the settings for the embedded dashboard using the Configure option. The configuration settings include the following -

    • Document - Use the dropdown to select the dashboard to embed in the component.
    • Initial Page Number - Set the page number that should preview initially when embedding a multi-page dashboard.
    • Parameters - Specify the parameter(s) for the embedded dashboard, if any.

      Embedded Dashboard Scenario Component Settings

You can also modify the appearance of the scenario by specifying its background color, border width and color, padding, margin, etc. Apart from this, you can customize the behavior of the scenario on preview by enabling cross filtering, managing visibility of menu items, and pinning the annotation to the scenario.

Embedded Dashboard Scenario

  • Embedded Report
    Use this scenario to embed a report into a dashboard. It shares the same functionality as that of the Embedded Dashboard scenario. You can define the settings for the embedded report using the Configure button present on top of the scenario. These configuration settings include the following -

    • Document - Use the dropdown to select the report to embed in the component.
    • Page Size Mode - Set the page zoom mode for the embedded report in the component. The possible values are 'Fit to Page' and 'Fit to Width'. By default, this setting is set to 'Fit to Width'.
    • Page Display Mode - Specify the page view mode for the embedded report in the component. The supported values are 'Single Page View', 'Galley Mode', and 'Continuous'. The default value for this setting is 'Single Page View'.
    • Show Toolbar - Choose whether to display the preview toolbar in the embedded component.
    • Parameters - Specify the parameter(s) for the embedded report, if any.

      Embedded Dashboard Scenario Component Settings

You can also modify the appearance of the scenario by specifying its background color, border width and color, padding, margin, etc. Apart from this, you can customize the behavior of the scenario on preview by managing the visibility of menu items and pinning the annotation to the scenario.
