Dashboards and stories

Export dashboards to PDF

You can create a PDF of your dashboard to print out or to share electronically. Printed PDFs can be conveniently read when you’re away from your computer, for example, while traveling on a plane. You can also easily share PDFs via email.

Drill through from a dashboard or story to a report

You can drill through from a visualization on your dashboard or story to a report. This allows you to navigate from the visualization to the related report, while retaining the original context of the visualization.

For more information, see the IBM Cognos Analytics Dashboards and Stories Guide.

Data modeling

Relinking a data module source

You can relink a data module source to a different source. You can use this functionality when the current source in your data module is invalid, or when you want to replace a test source with a production source.

After a successful relink, global calculations and relationships in the data module remain valid, and reports and dashboards that are based on this data module can start using the new source without any involvement from report authors. The relinked source must be of the same type as the original source.

For more information, see Relinking sources.
