The Jump To add-on feature in the Wyn Enterprise application, creates shortcuts on one dashboard to another dashboard, report, or URL (internal or external) in a new window or a pop-up dialog. The Jump To feature helps you to quickly find additional details of a particular data series by jumping to another document or a URL. The Jump To feature is supported in most of the dashboard scenarios such as Charts and KPIs, Tables, Maps, Advanced Charts, Images, and Rich Text.
Create a Jump To Scenario
To create a jump to another document or URL from a dashboard follow the below instructions,
Navigate to the create or edit dashboard page and select a dashboard component.
From the Inspector Panel on the right side of your screen, navigate to the Interaction section and click the + icon from the Jump To property.
Jump To dialog will appear on your screen. Give a name to the Jump To scenario, select a scenario to jump to (Dashboard, Report, external URL, or internal URL). There are three scenarios when selecting a Jump To option as described below,
Dashboard or Report: Choose a target document from the Document drop-down. You can pass parameters to the target document from the Parameters tab and add various options like Show Toolbar, Page Size Mode, and Initial Page Number from the Options tab. Parameters and Options tabs are described in the Properties of Jump To Dialog section.
External URL: Enter a valid URL to a web link in the Url input box.
Internal Page: Choose a page from the Target Page dropdown to create an internal jump to another page of the dashboard.
Note: Jump To - Internal Page can only be used in Rich Text, Annotations, and Images.
Now, select an option from the Open Mode dropdown to open the Jump To scenario in a - dialog, new window, embedded mode, redirect mode, or modeless dialog. Open Mode options are described in the Properties of Jump To Dialog section.
Note: For the Dialog mode, you can customize the appearance of the dialog by setting the size, header, fill color, and font color. Dialog settings are described in the Properties of Jump To Dialog section.
Click the Ok button to save.
Jump To a Document Or URL
To view a Jump To scenario, follow the below instructions,
Open a dashboard in preview mode, right click on the dashboard component linked to the Jump To scenario of another document or URL, hover on the Jump option from the pop-out and click the appropriate Jump To scenario.
The Jump To scenario will appear on your screen in the mode selected from the Open Mode option while creating the Jump To scenario. To resize the Jump To dialog, click and drag the resize button on the bottom left corner of the dialog box. To move the Jump To dialog, click and drag the header section of the dialog box.
Parameter Binding When Jumping to Another Dashboard
While jumping to another dashboard, you can bind the parameter to a data column which is not in the data binding panel, using the component’s data Tooltip. In this scenario, in the Jump To dialog, we are sending a field in a parameter which is not bound to the component. For example, as described below, in the source dashboard, a chart is bound to the Temperature and Heat_Type, while in the Jump To dialog of the chart, we have used the field Unit_Process in the parameter and this Unit_Process value is what we are getting from the chart’s data tooltip.
Create a source dashboard. In this example, we have taken a dashboard ParameterBinding_Dashboard as a source dashboard and have selected the ProcessTempsDataset data. In the DataBinding tab, we have taken Temp(C) and Heat_Type fields. We have added the field Unit_Process to the Tooltip.
Create the target dashboard. In this example, we have taken a dashboard Target_Dashboard as a target dashboard and have selected the ProcessTempsDataset data. In the DataBinding tab, we have taken Unit_Process and Heat_Type fields.
On the Inspector tab of the target dashboard, add the Parameters. We have added the field Unit_Process as a parameter which was added in a Tooltip in the source dashboard and was not bound to the data. Refer section Dashboard Parameters, for information about adding the parameters.
You can apply filters as well. We have applied filter based on the Heat_Type.
Now on the source dashboard, add a Jump To scenario and select the Value Type and Value for the parameters.
Now Preview the source dashboard and click on a particular Heat Type.
It will jump to the target dashboard and will display the details of count of the Process__Unit for the selected Heat_Type.
So, we can see from this example, that parameter Unit_Process that was not bound to the data on the source dashboard, is displayed on the target dashboard by adding the Unit_Process as tooltip in the source dashboard.
To Delete or Edit Jump To Scenario
To delete or edit a Jump To scenario, follow the below instructions,
Navigate to the edit mode of the dashboard, click a dashboard component and click the menu icon from the Inspector Panel.
To edit the scenario, click the edit icon next to the scenario name.
To delete the scenario, click the delete icon next to the scenario name.

Jump To External URL
You can jump to an external web app (with the filtered data) from a dashboard using the option External URL. The external web app will consume the jump-to variables defined in the URL and get the raw data.
For creating this URL, there is a variable Databinding and it has 3 sub-properties: "datasetId", "pivotModel", "rawModel".
datasetId: It will return the dashboard's datasetId to the jump URL.
pivotModel: It will return the dashboard's pivotModel to the jump URL. The pivotModel is used to get the aggregation data that was displayed on the dashboard.
rawModel: It will return the dashboard's rawModel to the jump URL.
If there is a dashboard with a Bar chart, and you want to jump to some external web application and have all the non-aggregated filtered values from the data, you need to create an External URL for the Jump To.
This URL will give the information to the target application to identify the document, scenario, and any filter/other info needed to recreate the data behind a given dashboard that was jumped from.
(In this we have taken the target web app as "http://1.com", parameter 1 as rawModel, and parameter 2 as datasetId ).
Preview the dashboard and right click on the chart and select Jump To.
It will navigate to the target external web app i.e. http://1.com and from this target web page you will get parameter1(p1) and parameter2(p2) (rawModel and datasetId) and these can be used to request Wyn API to get the transactional non-aggregated data in the form of a list of values for a given data set column that correlates with all the filters, etc. that the scenario had before jumping.
