Tabbed container extension

The tabbed container is a visualization extension that lets you add up to five tabs to show different master visualizations. It is included in Dashboard bundle.

When to use it

The tabbed container is useful when you want the user to be able to switch between different visualizations quickly on a dashboard with limited screen real estate.

Creating a tabbed container

You can create a tabbed container on the sheet you are editing. You need to have at least two master visualizations that you have created.

Do the following:

  1. From the assets panel, under Custom objects > Dashboard bundle drag a Tabbed container object to the sheet.
  2. Select how many tabs you want to display in Number of Tabs under Appearance > Tabs in the property panel.

  3. For each tab, select the master visualization to display in Chart, and enter the tab label in Label.

    You can also select to enable export for each tab with Enable export. This adds an export button which exports the data of the visualization in Excel format.

You will now have a visualization with two tabs. You can switch between the tabs to show different visualizations.

  • It is not possible to use a master visualization that contains a tabbed container inside another tabbed container.
  • Tab selection is not remembered when navigating between sheets or refreshing the browser.
