There are a number of ways to interact with reports in the Report Viewer. Available options depend on how the report was designed and the type of content in it.
If the environment has Action Events, there may be more interactive features than are listed in this article.
Drilling Into Data
Some reports allow you to drilldown into cells or charts to see additional data related to the field selected. If a cell or chart has a drilldown, you can click on one of the values to drill down into the related data.
Drilldowns are actually other reports that you can interact with or even export to a file. Drilldowns may even have drilldowns of their own!
Expanding Hidden Data
Some reports have hidden data that can be seen by expanding certain rows. Expandable rows are indicated by an arrow icon . Click on the icon to expand the row. Click the icon again to collapse it. Right-click the icon to open a menu to do the following:
- Expand / Collapse — expand or collapse the outer group
- Expand / Collapse Group — expand or collapse the group and any inner groups
- Expand / Collapse All — expand or collapse all outer and inner groups on the report
Visualizations have a number of interactive features depending on the type of chart. For example, line charts and bar charts allow you to hide series, multi-axis charts allow you to turn axes on or off, and pie charts allow you to rotate the chart and pull out slices. Charts can also show some additional information if you hover over a point or series. Heatmaps may optionally display up to 5 additional data series in a tooltip when hovering over a cell.
Drillingdown on Google Maps
On a Google Map, use the mouse wheel or click the Zoom in and Zoom out icons to change your view level. Drag the map to move the view in that direction. Double-click on a highlighted region to drill down into the location data.
On a GeoChart, click on a highlighted region to drill down into the region. Click [Back] to return to the previous view.
