When working with Web Page Dashlets in the Dashboard Designer, you can include a parameter reference in the Dashlet's URL. The parameter references an existing filter in another Dashlet, and uses that filter to display a specific web page relevant to the filtered information.
The following example takes you through the steps for creating a simple Dashboard in the Dashboard Designer, adding a sample chart with geographic filters, and creating a Web Page Dashlet that displays a Wikipedia page for the country the sample chart is filtered on.
First, create the simple dashboard:
From the Home page. Click Create > Dashboard. The Dashboard Designer appears, displaying the list of available content and the canvas.
In the Existing Content section of the Available Content panel, find and select a Report.
Click and drag the Report onto the Dashboard Canvas.
Next, add the Filter input control to the Dashboard:
In the Filters section, expand the folder.
Drag the Customer Country input control onto the canvas.
Now, add the Web Page Dashlet with the parameter reference and add it to the filter:
In the New Content section of the Available Content panel, click and drag the Web Page item onto your Dashboard. The Dashlet URL window opens.
