As part of the Dashboard Enhancement Custom Component Suite (DECCS), Visual BI presents the MULTI-SELECT GRID – a custom add-on components for SAP BusinessObjects Dashboards (formerly Xcelsius). Click here to view the full screen version.

While we have already released multi-select versions of standard components such as the List Box and Combo Box, the Multi-Select Dynamic Grid elevates SAP Dashboards to an entirely different level due to the possibilities this component unravels.

Multi Select Dynamic Grid for SAP Dashboards

Key highlights of this component include:

  • Grid Format: Group selectable inputs in a grid-like fashion
  • Arrangement: Customize row and column count in the grid (e.g. 3X4 or 2X6)
  • Click-and-Drag: Click or click-and-drag to select / de-select values
  • Sort: Sort labels in the grid
  • Multi-Select On/Off: Disable the Multi-Select feature to transform it into a Single Select Grid box.
  • Alert: Display Alert icons next to labels in the list

In addition, the component also offers tighter integration with SAP BW. In fact it can

  • Handle various types of data sources – Excel-based, relational and dimensional
  • Display text labels directly from the Master Data Key-Text pairs, and filter transaction data containing ONLY Keys. Thus it simultaneously handles master & transaction data AS-IS, without the need for customization in the queries / excel model.
  • When multiple labels are selected, the corresponding values can be written to a range of cells or a single cell (separated with semicolons) – this can be passed directly to Bex Variables of type ‘Multiple Single Value’ without the need for any additional processing.
