Search Functionality in the Dashboard RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,


    Is there any search functionality present in Performance Point so that a user can select from a list of filter values in the Dashboard?


    Can we have a textbox or something similar in which the user can enter a value and it can be passed to the dashboard components as a parameter??


    Thank You.

  • I'm afraid you are out of luck.  What we have been asking for is linked filters.  You pick a filter, such as a category, and then it filters the next filter of items by the first filter.  UNFORTUNATELY, it doesn't exist yet.  A textbox wouldn't be a bad addition either.  It is a major inconvience since you can't put thousands of items into a dropdown list.  Hopefully we will see something in an upgrade before too long. 


    The only thing we've found is that you can have various dashboards for various needs.  You can then have the filters limited in the MDX.  In most cases, this doesn't meet our needs.  In rare occasions, it's helped.
