Drill to Insights from KPI Dashboards



On KPI Dashboards, you can enable drilling from measures or attributes to any existing insight. By clicking on a measure in the View mode (not while editing), the target insight then opens.

You can configure drilling for any insight you add to your dashboard. Drilling for KPIs is not supported.


  1. Add an insight to a KPI Dashboard.
    For details, see Set up a KPI Dashboard.
  2. Click the insight.
    The options menu opens.
  3. In the Interactions section, click Add interaction.
  4. Select for which measure or attribute to set the drilling.
  5. In the I want to drop-down menu, select Drill into insight.
  6. Select to which insight you want to drill when clicking on the measure/attribute.
  7. (Optional) Repeat steps 3-6 to add more drilling.
    You can add drilling for each measure and attribute in the insight.

  8. Click Save & Publish.

Now to open the target insight in a pop-up window:

  • Click a measure value in the source insight if you drill from measures (all insights) or attributes (all except pivot tables).
  • Click an attribute value, if you drill from attributes in a pivot table.
    The image shows a table without drilling (left) and with drilling on the Menu category attribute (right).

If multiple drills are configured, you can select where to drill when you click a measure or an attribute.

If you remove a source measure/attribute from the insight, KPI Dashboards remove the drilling from the insight and display a message when you edit the dashboard. 

Filters in drilling

The target insight is filtered by the following filters:

  • Filters configured in the KPI Dashboard filter bar and active for the source insight.
  • Filters configured in Analytical Designer for the target insight.
  • Attribute value you click on in the source insight.
    When you click on a value in Fine dining, the target insight filters only to Fine dining.

The target insight ignores any filters configured for the source insight in Analytical Designer.
