Dashboards 4.0: Connect to an external interface
In Dashboards, you can use the External Interface data connection to expose data ranges in your workbook so that you can move data into and out of SWF files. By combining these connections with additional code, you can enable dashboards to provide information to each other.
In this tutorial, you will create external interface connections for two dashboards: one set up to provide data to the other. You will then export the files as HTML, copy and paste the relevant code from the exported files into a third HTML file that is set up to enable communication between them, and test the connection.
