Trigger / Click Action based on Slicer Selection (Presentation)

Hello community,

I am inspired by the actions function and just wondered if you see a possibility that allows me to configure actions (i.e. jump to slide) which are triggered after selecting a single element inside a slicer (while keeping the slicer selection).

My usecase is that I want to jump between presentation slides (containing different visualisations) depending on the element that is chosen by the user.

Example for selection and desired action:

 

 

If this is not possible, I am thinking about using a table object instead of a slicer to configure the jump actions.

Do you have any hints for me if this is achievable?

 

  

Thank you very much

Florian

    Slicers today do not trigger an action - they can only inject selections into other items that can then be used with the action. You have already stumbled on the perfect alternative - grids. Build yourself a simple grid of elements like the slicer, and attach actions to it. Obviously it doesn't look the same - but it works very well. Alternatively, have the slicer inject its current selection into a graphic. Then attach a click action to that graphic for the jump.

    Hello Avi Perez ,

    thanks for pointing me towards the grid based click actions. I was able to build a prototype which works quite well :). However, some questions arosed while developing it:

    1) might there be another way to access the action viewing the presentation except via "right click - actions"? i.e. a simple double-click on the element would be perfect :)

     

    I looked up the User Defaults for Single / Double Clicks, missing that configuration option (might be not possible a.t.m because theoretically its possible to define multiple actions...?! ;)

     

     

    2) Setting up a more complex action-condition

    I use the following setup to jump into another slide, injecting the element that I clicked on into a target, which then "transfers" the selection into the target page´s objects (graph, dynamic text).

     

    I now want to set up a condition where different slides will be opened based on the element I chose. 

    I am pretty confident this can be achieved via the advanced option / PQL formulas.
    Can you confirm this and maybe lead me in the right direction how to start?!

    I also thought about defining the "element to slide" assignment and load it into the discovery, if this may help not to write endless code but instead using the second column as a reference inside the formlua?

    Thank you very much!

    Florian

    A select and jump option from an analytical view or slice is not available.

    The only suggestion is to have the selection auto-inject into an action button and then have the user click on the button to jump to the slide.
