Adapting an analytic dashboard with Visual Composer
In this example we start with an existing analytic dashboard that display a table and a chart, displaying information resulting from two BI queries. We open the model of the dashboard in visual composer and add two additional charts to the model. The steps in order to adapt the dashboard are:
Opening the Visual Composer Model
Searching for additional queries in the BI system
Adding queries to the model
Adding Charts to display the query results
Configuring the chart parameters
Rearranging the layout
Using predefined queries in the BI system the dashboard is adapted to display the additional information as required.
Using Nested iViews to build a dashboard in Visual Composer
In this example we use the nested iViews functionality in visual composer to quickly build the same dashboard from the previous example. By modeling several iView and defining them as Nested iViews, we can later use these iView to “assemble” new dashboards. As the varied report views were modeled beforehand, all that is required is selecting the Nested iViews we wish to use and arranging the layout according to our needs.
