Linking a dashboard to a Webi or Crystal report document

This feature can be used to link your dashboard to a detailed Webi or Crystal report. This is very useful, because you can't display a large amount of detailed information in your dashboard. Moreover, this this is not what dashboards are meant to be used for. We can use the OpenDocument function to specify the report that we will open, and to pass the required parameters to the report prompts.

We can use the URL button dashboard component and a link to the required report, along with prompt values.

Note

You can read a complete guide on how to configure and use the OpenDocument function at https://help.sap.com/businessobject/product_guides/boexir4/en/xi4_opendocument_en.pdf.
