Slicers

Slicers are visual filters that dynamically filter the data at run-time and make the dashboard more effective and interactive. The scope of influence that slicers have on the dashboard includes the scenarios that are on the same page of the dashboard and use the same dataset.

The following table explains the different types of built-in slicers available in Wyn Enterprise. You can also create a custom slicer based on your business requirements.

Add a Slicer

  1. From the Data Visualization node, drag-drop the Label Slicer on the design area.
  2. Go to the Data Binding area and bind the slicer to an appropriate dataset from the list.
  3. Select any data attribute for the Columns field. For example, in the following image, we selected the 'Year' attribute.

  4. Click the Edit button in the upper-right corner of the slicer. You will get the following options: clear selection, select parameter, no sort, search, and share scenario. If you choose any data value in the edit mode of the slicer, the value is set as its default value. You can use Clear Selection to clear the selected value and restore the slicer to its initial state. In the following image, we selected 2015 as the default year.

  5. In the Inspector tab of the slicer, you can define various properties related to its layout, interaction, data, title, and so on. For example, if you want to select one value at a time in a slicer, set the Selection Mode property to 'Single' as shown below.
