Inputs are Activeboard elements that let you apply filters to data in your Activeboard's widgets. The values you specify in an input are automatically inserted in the widget's query, which allows you to easily display different data in your widgets. Currently, there are two types of inputs available:
- Input - Creates a free-text field in the Activeboard.
- Select - Creates a drop-down list with a limited set of values. The list of values available can be either fixed or the result of a query.
Adding inputs to an Activeboard
To add an input to a Activeboard, click the Inputs button at the top of the Activeboard, then click and drag your chosen input to the Activeboard workspace.
To edit the input's settings, click its title bar. Alternatively, click on the ellipsis in the top right and choose Edit. The Data tab has the same options for both input types, although the intrinsic characteristics of each input type imply some specificities. The Visual tab contains different options, depending on the input type. To know more, click any of the links below to check their specific articles:
