Viewing Dashboards

In View mode, Arcadia Instant dashboards are dynamic and responsive.

This is achieved primarily through the active interaction among Filters and Visuals, but also as a result of having Dashboard Controls.

Note that you can control dashboards through keyboard shortcuts, and not just by clicking the widgets on the interface. The keyboard shortcuts are:

  • Ctrl + B

    This moves the dashboard to the previous state, by resetting the filter values. It is equivalent to clicking the (left arrow) icon.

  • Ctrl + F

    This advances the dashboard to the next state (if one exists), by forwarding to a previously selected set of filter values. It is equivalent to clicking the (right arrow) icon.

  • Ctrl + R

    This resets the dashboard to the initial state. It is equivalent to clicking the (refresh) icon.

Using Dashboard Controls

In View mode, Arcadia Instant offers a set of Dashboard Controls. They include the following:

  • Current Parameters show the current values of dashboard-level filters.
  • Previous Parameters navigates between a series of filter settings by going back in history one step.
  • Next Parameters navigates between a series of filter settings by going forward in history one step.
  • Reset Parameters returns the state of the dashboard to the original filter values. To change these initial values, you must edit the dashboard and save the changes.
  • Link to Page is an option that shows the full URL address of the dashboard so you can copy, save, and share it.
