The default behavior of an Open document trigger is to transfer all criteria from the first document to the triggered document. The transferred criteria includes Global, Local and Drill Down criteria.
A typical example is when we need to get even more details about data in a dashboard. We may then create a specific trigger button in the dashboard analysis to open the Detail document.
The question is how this trigger should behave when activated? The options are:
- Transfer all criteria from the source document to the target document.
- Transfer selected criteria from the source document to the target document.
- Open the target document with its own saved criteria
Furthermore, when criteria are transferred, you can choose between replacing the target document criteria or merging with the target document criteria.
When you add the trigger, you have an option to include or exclude (whichever is the easiest to administrate) all criteria or criteria from selected dimensions:
Note: When the option 'Saved criteria only' is selected, the Criteria behavior option is removed. This is because 'Saved criteria only' means that no criteria will be transferred to the target document, and that the target document will be opened with its own saved criteria only.
