GoodData KPI dashboards can be configured to respond to clicks by redirecting, or “drilling”, into other insights or dashboards. This can be a great tool for providing additional context to the end user.


Drill to Insight

Drilling into another Insight allows the user to see more granular detail about metrics without having to search around for the information. In the example shown below, the drill feature was used to further expand monthly revenue into how revenue was earned by product category. Also notice that the filters (in this case “Month”) applied to the metric where clicked is also applied to the drill in Insight.

Drill to Dashboard

Similarly to drilling into another Insight, drilling into a dashboard is a great way to provide users a view into further analytics into related data. In the example below, you will see that from a “Customer Trend” insight, a user will be navigated to the Customer details dashboard. Here, the user will see more granular information on Customer data beyond what is shown on the Overview dashboard where the original insight is. Please note that date and attribute filtering from the origin dashboard will be passed onto the target dashboard.
