Select QuickViews dialog box.

NOTES: Consider how the combination of other option settings affects which QuickViews appear on the portlet:

  • If you select QuickViews on the Select QuickViews dialog box, they appear on the QuickViews portlet and are listed on this page in the QuickViews box.
  • In a Measure Factory analysis, the factory defines the QuickViews that display. Leave the QuickViews box blank to display the QuickViews that are defined in whatever analysis the Analysis portlet is currently displaying.

  • If the QuickViews box on this page is blank, and the Go Button and Reset Button check boxes are clear, all QuickViews that are found in all other portlets on the page are added to the QuickView portlet.
  • If the QuickViews box on this page is blank, and either the Go Button or Reset Button is selected, no QuickViews are added to the QuickView portlet.

DI recommends that you use the QuickViews list to specify which QuickViews you want to include.

Share Selection With QuickView Portlets on Other Pages

Applies selections from QuickViews in this portlet to QuickView portlets on other pages in the portal. When a QuickView value is changed or reset, any QuickViews on other pages that are in QuickView portlets and correspond to the same dimension display the changed selection. This option is selected by default.

NOTES

  • If multiple values are selected in this QuickView, any single-select Flex QuickViews display Some Values (<n>), on the collapsed list to indicate that the value <n> is a subset of all values. The data is filtered on the selected values.
  • If the QuickView is in a marker file, changing the QuickView value can affect the display on other pages, even those that do not share this QuickView.
Columns

Specifies the number of columns that the QuickView portlet displays. The QuickViews are presented in a grid with this number of columns. The default is 4, as shown in this example.

Labels

NOTE: Setting this option to None has no effect on Label-type QuickViews.

Go Button

Available when Use QuickView set is selected or QuickViews in other portlets on the page have a Go button. Adds a Go button to the portlet interface to allow users to select options from multiple QuickView lists before updating the page. Only one Go button is required on a page, even if the page contains multiple QuickView portlets. This option is clear by default.

NOTE: If the QuickViews are set to activate when Go is pressed, changing a QuickView disables the Print and Share options as well as any click actions until Go is pressed. This ensures that the printed output or click action shows up-to-date data.

Reset Button Available when Use QuickView set is selected or QuickViews in other portlets on the page have a Reset button. Adds a Reset button to the portlet interface which resets all portlet QuickViews to the value saved in the marker or QuickView set, the default value for a free entry QuickView, or the default value specified in portlet preferences for Factory-based QuickViews. If Share Selection With QuickView Portlets on Other Pages is also selected, clicking Reset changes all QuickView values in the entire portal to the value saved in the marker. This option is clear by default.

Time Range QuickViews

If you have a Measure Factory license and the factory configuration file includes a time series, the Time Range option is automatically included in the QuickViews list. Select this option to create a Time Range QuickView. This QuickView is populated with the rolling or to-date ranges specified in the configuration file. Additionally, DiverPort 7.1(17) and later includes Time Range Start and Time Range End options that you can use to allow users to specify a custom time range. If used, both the start and end options must be included. See also About Time Range QuickViews.

NOTE: QuickView portlets are automatically sized to accommodate the QuickView values. They do not have resize handles.
