New linked analysis (Analytic Application)

Link analysis is a convenient functional for linking of charts / tables to control the filtering of one element by another. Such standard functionality has been in stories for a long time.

But in applications, until recently, it was possible to configure such a scenario only through scripts. Very well described in this article by Prasad Gurla

  • Linked Analysis Diagram

There are two ways to switch to this mode:

  • via the top menu
  • via widget

when you click the link to analyze diagrams, an additional tab will open:

you can go to the same tab through the widget and this diagram will open in the context of the selected widget:

option to display a diagram when connected to a link analysis input controls:

Interactivity is a very important feature. Link analysis provides the functionality of this interactivity through linking widgets. With standard settings and linked visual diagrams, this process has become much easier, faster and clearer.
